Parent Teacher Association

As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) reminds our country of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child while providing the best tools for parents to help their children be successful students.


At Sundance Elementary, our PTA is a wonderful group of volunteer parents whose primary goal is to enrich the learning environment on campus through various programs and activities.  If you would like to become involved, the PTA is always looking for volunteers.  To keep up on Sundance PTA events and news, please join our Facebook page.
