Dear PTA Advocates of Duval County:

3 – 2 – 1 – Engage! 
So, no, our theme is still “Building a Bridge”, but, if there was going to be a sub theme, I think this is it. There are so many things demanding our attention right now, but it’s also a time when engagement in the decisions being made that affect our children cannot be sidelined. PTA’s role as an integral partner and valued voice in our schools and community has never been more crucial. Challenge yourselves to increase communication with your membership and share resources and information as you receive them from DCCPTA as well as Florida and National PTA. The more of us that are in the know, the better we can make things for all children and build a bridge together.

Theresa Rogers, President
Duval County Council of PTAs and PTSAs
