Jenks PTA provides encouragement and support to Jenks Elementary teachers, students and families in our community. We support each other with our time and talents. We also offer financial support to provide for our school’s needs that are outside the scope of their budget.
We have impact far beyond our own community too! As a part of the Texas and National PTA, we form the largest child advocacy organization in the country. Collectively, we have tremendous power to change the lives of children for the better through legislation and education. It’s amazing what we can achieve together!
