WSPTA Vision, Mission and Goals:
IH PTSA adheres to the vision and mission of the Washington State PTA:
Vision: “Making every child’s potential a reality”
Mission: PTA is a powerful voice for all children.
PTA is a relevant resource for families and communities.
PTA is a strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child.
The Washington State PTA accomplishes this mission by:
  • Speaking on behalf of children and youth in the schools, in the community, and before governmental bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children;
• Supporting parents* in developing skills to raise, protect and advocate for their children;
• Encouraging parent*, teacher, student and community involvement;
• Promoting opportunities for positive outcomes for children; and
• Being a financially stable, well-managed organization that promotes diversity, provides quality service, models best practices and values its members and employees.

*Parent may include adults who play an important role in a child’s family life since other adults (grandparents, aunts, uncles, or guardians) may carry the primary responsibility for a child’s health, welfare, education and safety
