Our mission is to support the education, health, and welfare of each and every child at Somerset Elementary School. As part of the Washington State PTA, we are a nonprofit membership association bringing together the home, school, and community on behalf of our children.

 WSPTA Family Engagement

Well-informed, engaged parents make a difference for student success in school and beyond. Research shows that family engagement in a child’s education increases student achievement, improves attendance and reduces dropout rates.
 
WSPTA Student Showcase
 
Students across the state participate in a number of Washington State PTA programs and events. From inspiring works of art to composing musical masterpieces to choreographing themed dances and so much more our students are an ongoing source of inspiration.
 
 Health and Well-Being

The Washington State PTA (WSPTA) believes that to achieve our vision to help every child’s potential become a reality, we must be strong advocates for the whole child; including his or her health and well-being. Healthy students are absent less often, experience fewer behavior problems, and have an easier time learning.

A student’s health and well-being may be achieved with a healthy diet, physical activity, safe drinking water, and mental health and emotional support.

 
National PTA Programs

National PTA offers a wide range of programs, toolkits, awards, grants, and leadership networks that focus on creating meaningful engagement of families for student success and school improvements. Each resource is guided by the PTA National Standards for Family-School Partnerships.

Programs offered by National PTA are created to organize and support parent and community engagement in every child’s education. The programs are created with leading expert organizations on topics of importance to our members and community partners.
