Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

Welcome to the Thornton Creek Elementary Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

Thornton Creek PTA Logo

Thornton Creek PTA was founded in 2018 by a group of dedicated anti-racist advocates. Our job as an equity-based PTA is to create space and opportunities for all families to feel welcome, empowered and see themselves reflected in our school.

Our primary goal is to foster and model equity while we advocate for educational justice for all students. Our hope is to make it as relevant, engaging, and meaningful as we can. We invite you to join us on this path of solidarity.

How to engage in the work we do

We believe that equity and inclusion work should be centered and nurtured in every level of participation and leadership in our school, district, region and world. Each year we build on the last and strive to know and be more. We are excited to hear your ideas and partner with you to support and thoughtfully engage in building environments where all our young people and families can thrive.
