Zoo Atlanta Educators and PTA Members Appreciation Day

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.

PTA Day at the Capitol

The 2014 Georgia PTA Day at the Capitol will be held March 4, 2014.  We invite all PTA members to celebrate our second century of advocacy by joining us at 8:30 a.m. at the Fulton County Government Center for a briefing on legislative issues and advocacy.  Immediately following this session, we will head to the Capitol to see the legislature at work.

Invite your administrators, educators, superintendents, school board members, business partners and student leaders to attend.  To ensure your seat, register early.  Remember to WEAR RED!

The second highlight of the day will be lunch with the legislators at the Freight Depot beginning at 12:15 p.m.  Georgia PTA has invited all of the legislators to the luncheon, however, a personal invitation from you as a constituent and “local leader” in your community will be the most effective guarantee of their attendance. Go to Capitol Watch here to contact your legislator.

Advance Registrations must be received in state office on or before Wednesday, February 26, 2014.  Registration after February 26 or on site is $50.
