Welcome to the Maya Lin PTA!

Masks keep us safe!

Maya Lin is an arts integrated, inquiry learning based school. Our Mission is to embrace 21st century learning and the involvement of our community in building a dynamic school environment. We acknowledge learning is a lifelong process and support ongoing professional development and collaboration for all members of the school community. We hope you had a great summer!  It’s time to rejoin or join the PTA anew.  We have a new principal, several new teachers, and a great new attitude!  The wolf pack sticks together to keep everyone safe from covid while celebrating the return to the classroom.

JOIN the PTA!

You may be wondering “why bother joining the PTA?”  Community is important to everyone at Maya Lin.  The mission statement of Maya Lin School is:

“Our Mission is to embrace 21st century learning and the involvement of our community in building a dynamic school environment. We acknowledge learning is a lifelong process and support ongoing professional development and collaboration for all members of the school community.” The PTA is committed to support the school in this endeavor. In fact, many of the PTA committees focus on 21st century learning by promoting social justice and equity,  building community with the many activities, and supporting teachers through teacher grants. Not only that but the PTA support outdoor learning and art spaces.

The PTA also supports field trips, fundraising, harvest haunt, multicultural fair, sweet & greet, library/media center supplies, and many more.  Our arts-integrated school has been through a lot in the past 10 years.  It has stayed community focused because of you, the parents, participating and volunteering.

There are many ways to get involved at Maya Lin, and we need all types, so sign-up to volunteer now!

You are welcome, everyone truly belongs, here at Maya Lin.  Please reach out to mayalinpta@gmail with questions or ideas!
