About the PTSA

What is a PTSA?

The Meridian Park PTSA (Parent, Teacher Student Association) supports our teachers, families and school through community-building events, classes, services and more. Our organization is part of the National PTAWashington State PTA and the Shoreline PTA Council.

We keep families informed of what’s going on at school through our monthly newsletter, Cheetah Chatter. This publication keeps families informed on PTSA and Meridian Park events and lets families know what’s happening at school.

We offer volunteers the opportunity to take active roles in supporting our school. With a wide variety of programs and positions, there’s something for everyone.

The Meridian Park PTSA strives to be an open, welcoming organization, and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions about our organization or would like to get involved.

Programs for Learning and Playing

The Meridian Park PTSA organizes events such as the annual Talent Show, Fall Festival, Family Fitness Night and skating parties as well as offering classes and clubs.  We also coordinate services like student banking, and health and vision screening.

Keeping an Eye on Olympia

We monitor state legislation pertaining to schools and children, and report back to Meridian
Park families on current issues, and how they can affect change in our communities. The PTA is the largest child advocacy organization in the country

Money for Your School

Through funds raised in fall and spring campaigns, and through several corporate donors, the Meridian Park PTSA is able to donate money to each teaching station for supplies as well as making classroom grants in January for larger projects. These dollars also help us invest in our other services so that they are accessible to families for free or at low cost.
