New PTA Website

Welcome to the new PTA Website. With this new design, the PTA is embarking on a phased project to seamlessly integrate its various online capabilities. The first step is a modest one—migration from hand-coded HTML to a modern content management system. This allows PTA authors to write stories without the assistance of web programmers—an important step forward that will allow timely publication of materials. But even this first step comes packed with useful features...

  • Search In the upper-right corner, type in any term to find content related to your search topic
  • Contact-the-PTA form: in the upper left. SEND US FEEDBACK ON THE SITE PLEASE!
  • Calendar (by Google): Subscribe to the PTA calendar using your smartphone and personal computer; stay up to date with "upcoming events"
  • Subscribe to new content on the site: Click orange "RSS" icon at the bottom of home page
  • Secure pages for functions that require it at
  • Print website pages to others:   Click the printer icon at the bottom of most pages
  • Readable URLs for every page of content on the site: e.g.
  • A crisp new look with new logo from the studio of Doug McGredy, and a new menu that provides quick access to most of the site's content!

The site provides a foundation for additional features that will be phased in as time permits and demand dictates. Features may include:

  • Advanced layout management to support print-style editing of text and images
  • Login to the PTA website, including automatic login to the Online Directory
  • Protected content (content that requires users to be signed-in) such as Photo galleries, Hilites issues, etc.
  • User comments on articles 
  • Payment processing for fees and goods 

... and much more.
