The Watchung PTA is an organization of parent volunteers that seeks to strengthen our school community, support our teachers, and enrich the experience of our students. Our primary initiatives fall under the categories of building community and creating enrichment opportunities for students and staff, as well as raising the funds necessary to support PTA programs and events.
