You've probably seen the advertisements on Facebook and TV for the new
Bad Moms comedy that references PTA. Released today, it tells the story of
an over-worked and over-committed mom who teams up with other stressed-out moms
to free themselves from the everyday challenge of balancing kids, home and their careers.
We are proud in what we do and show great pride for it—from the the creation of
kindergarten classes, child labor laws to protect children, healthy school lunch programs
and juvenile justice reform.
Let's shine a light on the parents in your community who are making a difference
in the children's lives through their involvement in PTA. Throughout the next
couple of weeks, join the conversation and let us know why you got involved in PTA
and why you are proud to be a part of the association using the
hashtag #PTAProud on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram.
Here's how you can show your #PTAProud:
Special thanks to California State PTA for inspiration for this campaign!

Just a reminder that if you plan to submit comments as a state PTA or as an individual the deadline to submit is .
You can submit your comments through Regulations.gov (this is the direct link to submit comments) or via National PTA’s Takes Action Network. Using the Regulations.gov link is best if you have a letter to submit. We are encouraging state PTA’s to send comments that way on their letterhead. Feel free to use National PTA’s comments in part or in their entirety when submitting on behalf of your state PTA.
The Takes Action Network link includes a condensed version of National PTA’s comments that were submitted on July 22, 2016 and are attached.
