Why Join PTA

Throughout the United States, government funding for every public school system is very limited. Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS) does what they can, but they are stretched very thin.


That’s where Parent Teacher Associations come in! Your CTES PTA raises money so we can fill the gaps and provide the additional curriculum supports our students need to enrich their education. Below are just some of the ways CTES PTA Supports our students, teachers and families.

  • Technology and Innovation Labs
  • Developing STEAM resources
  • Classroom enhancement funds that directly benefit our teachers
  • Quaver Music Program
  • Playground Equipment
  • Family Events
  • Assemblies and guest speakers


Joining the PTA does not commit you to volunteering, it is simply a way to support the work that our PTA does. Your membership fee goes to pay our dues to the Virginia State PTA. Your membership affords you access to our family directory, a vote in PTA general member meetings, and a since of belonging to our school community. Membership must be renewed EACH school year, it does not carry over from year to year. To join now click on the button below and go to the "New Forms" section and click on the PTA Membership 2022-2023 form. 


Cub Club Donations:

In addition to a yearly membership we encourage all families to make a yearly donation to our Cub Club. 100% of your donation goes directly to CTES PTA to help our school. Your donations allow CTES PTA to continue providing the curriculum supports and programs for our students, teachers and families. We recommend a $50 donation per student. The key to our success is YOU!  In order for the PTA to make the most impact, we need the generosity of all our parents, families, and community members. Donations in any amount are most welcome. To donate now click on the button below and go to the "New Forms" section and click on the Cub Club Donation 2022-2023 form for each of your students.
