Teacher Appreciation Week is here!
It’s Teacher Appreciation Week, and the Thank a Teacher campaign is going strong. We’ve partnered again with the Virginia Lottery to achieve one goal: sending thank-you notes to as many Virginia public school teachers as possible.
Thank a teacher today – visit www.thankateacherva.com to send a digital thank-you note! While you’re at it, please remind parents, students and anyone who knows a deserving teacher that they can do the same. You can send the notes through midnight on Friday, May 10.
Teachers who receive a thank-you note can enter for a chance to win one of two Virginia vacation packages courtesy of the Virginia Tourism Corporation. All PTAs that participate will receive Virginia Lottery Scratchers along with their notecards.
For more information, visit www.thankateacherva.com. Thank you for supporting the Thank a Teacher campaign – and for recognizing our hardworking public school teachers!
The Annual Meeting and Advocacy Conference 2019 - #AMAC19 - was full of networking, relationship building, workshop sessions, PTA store, awards, speakers, bylaws, resolution, and so much more. Thank You to everyone who attended and we hope to see you next year...think about bringing a friend, too.
Your new Executive Committee was elected. Congratulations and we hope to build our foundation with all of you.

Congratulations to our Virginia student artists on their national achievements in the arts!
Reflections is the flagship Arts in Education program for National PTA. Students enter through their local unit PTA in the categories of Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts. First place entries move on from their local unit to compete in County, then District, then State and then National.
Virginia is very excited to have 15 students place at the National level for 2018! That is more than any other state! Thank you to all of our parents, volunteers, teachers, and students for supporting this program. You have worked so hard and we congratulate you on your success!
