November 2021 Social Media Kit: Thankful for PTA

This month’s Social Media Kit is intended to supplement your existing communication materials, celebrate a successful kick-off of the school year (Membership Drive, Reflections, and other fall programs), and help you thank your fellow PTA members and leaders for making a difference for all children and families in your school and community. 

Use the copy and images provided in this kit on your social media accounts, in your newsletters and announcements, and even in your zoom calls. Thank you to all our fellow PTA communicators as you connect, include, inspire your community, and grow PTA.
