Welcome to the Mariners PTA!

When you join Mariners Elementary PTA you become a member of the largest children’s advocacy group in the nation.  Our PTA supports the Mariners community by planning and funding programs and activities that meet the specific needs of our school.  We support the educational efforts of our teachers in the classroom and work to increase parent involvement through communication, family events and fun volunteer opportunities throughout the school year.

Mariners Elementary PTA organizes two major fundraisers during the school year, our fall gift wrap sale and the spring Jog-a-thon.  All profits earned through these fundraisers stay at our school and directly go towards funding the programs and services that our PTA provides.

What does our PTA fund?

Some of the many programs funded by the PTA include:

- Art Masters

- Reading Intervention and Enrichment Program Aide(s) and Materials

- Science on the Go

- Walk Through Programs

- Planners for Upper Grade Students

Computer Lab Technology Aide

- Campus Communications (Mariners Back to School Folder and Weekly Reminders)

- Red Ribbon Week

- Lunch Time Art Activities

- School Play

How can I get involved or find out more? Attend a PTA meeting on the last Wednesday of each month at 9:15 a.m. in the PFT, or contact our PTA President, Joanne Nichols at
