Georgia PTA is pleased to announce to its membership that this year’s Zoo Atlanta Educator Appreciation Day is set for Saturday, September 6, 2014.
Georgia PTA has enjoyed a long standing partnership with our friends at Zoo Atlanta. This relationship has resulted in awesome benefits for all card-carrying PTA members. Georgia PTA would like to take this opportunity to formally express our sincere THANKS for all of the educators across the state [teachers, school and school district administrators [including our superintendents] that have already joined their local PTA/PTSAs for this new school year. If you have not yet joined for the 2014-15 year, we encourage you to do so. In addition to free admission for one PTA member per household each year on Educator’s day, families can also receive $10.00 off Zoo memberships, or Rare Care animal sponsorships as well.
