  • I want Ben Martin Elementary to be one of the best schools in Cumberland County!
  • I want my child to have a great school year – to learn and to have fun!
  • I want to set an example to students the importance of volunteering!
  • I want to connect with other parents to make a difference in our school!
  • I want to help decide how PTA fundraising moneys are spent!
  • I want all the students at Ben Martin be successful!

If the above statements are true, then “help us help the school”.  Parent involvement is critical for a successful school.  You can volunteer as a PTA officer or a committee chair.  There are jobs that take no more than a couple hours a month, some are that are seasonal, and a few that require a routine commitment.  Did you know that it is the belief of the General Assembly that parent involvement is an essential component of school success and positive student outcomes.  Therefore, employers shall grant four hours per year leave to any employee who is a parent, guardian of a school-aged child so that the employee may attend or otherwise be involved at that child’s school.  Learn more at N.C. Department of Labor – Leave for Parental Involvement in Schools.

Dedicated teachers, staff, and PARENTS help make Ben Martin Elementary a great school!  Join now – it’s rewarding, it’s important, it’s even fun!

Nominate yourself or someone else.  Some positions can even be shared, some are ready to be filled immediately, but all need your support in order to be successful.  If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher for more information.

All candidates for positions must be a member of the PTA, with current dues paid before beginning any position.  Annual dues are $5.oo per person, every member of your household can be a member.  Every person who joins a school PTA in North Carolina automatically becomes a member of both the North Carolina PTA and National PTA.  Membership is open to ANYONE who believes in the PTA Mission and Values.  Being a member does not commit you to a position, but does allow your voice to be heard!
