[ARCHIVED] Councilwoman Fairclough-McCormick joins all Homestead area PTAs and recognizes their role


Knowing the important role parent teacher associations (PTA) play in schools is something long-time educator Councilwoman Patricia Fairclough-McCormick knows too well. At the September Special Presentation section of the Homestead City Council meeting, the Councilwoman became a member of all local PTAs to lead by example and encourage community involvement in education.

“This recognition is meant to bring exposure to the good work our local PTAs are doing and the important role they play in supporting teachers in the classrooms,” said Councilwoman Fairclough-McCormick. “In my role as a teacher I recognized that my success was due largely in part to active parents and an engaged community. Today, I am recognizing and joining all our PTAs to bring attention to their importance and encourage all our Homestead parents to join and become involved in their children’s education.”

The PTAs joined by Councilwoman Fairclough-McCormick are Medical Academy for Science and Technology (MAST) at Homestead, Gateway Environmental (K-8), Air Base Elementary (K-5), Campbell Drive Elementary (K-5), West Homestead Elementary, Redondo Elementary (K-3), South Dade Middle School (4-8), Homestead Middle School (6-8), South Dade Senior High School, School for Advance Studies Homestead (MDC 11-12), Homestead Senior High, Keys Gate Charter School (K-8), Keys Gate Charter High School (9-12), The Charter School at Waterstone, Somerset Academy Charter High School, Summerville Advantage Academy (K-8) and Atala Montessori School for Creative Expressions.

The Parent Teacher Association movement was founded in 1897 in Washington D.C. by a group of mothers that were concerned about the education, health and safety of children and youth in the United States. Today the Parent Teacher Association has over 3.5 million members and range from parents, teachers, aunts and uncles to grandparents and other concerned citizens but still share the concerns of the original founders.
