Ralston PTA Overview

Dear Ralston Families, Staff and Teachers,

Each year, our PTA looks for new ways to create positive experiences and contribute to the success of ALL of our students. Engaged staff, parents, and students working together have a tremendous impact on our children's educational experience. Research shows that parent involvement makes a positive difference in a child's education, affecting his/her behavior, motivation, and school engagement
