Information for Parents
One reason Oak Springs is such an exceptional school is the involvement of our parents in the classroom as volunteers, at school events & fund-raisers and with their children at home.

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
The PTA is the largest child-advocacy organization in Texas. Studies show that PTA membership provides children with a greater chance of achieving in school. As a PTA member, you are more likely to be an informed, involved parent. More than ever, it is important for parents to learn ways to keep children safe and involved in school. PTA is the best place to gain that knowledge.
Becoming a PTA member doesn't obligate you for meetings or leadership, but we encourage participation at Oak Springs if you want to be more informed.
