EMMS PTA Misson and Values

The EMMS PTA is aligned with the National Parent Teacher Association’s mission to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We also support the National PTA values of:

  • Collaboration: We work in partnership with a wide array of individuals and organizations to accomplish our agreed-upon goals.
  • Commitment: We are dedicated to promoting children’s health, well-being, and educational success through strong parent, family, and community involvement.
  • Accountability: We acknowledge our obligations. We deliver on our promises.
  • Respect: We value our colleagues and ourselves. We expect the same high quality of effort and thought from ourselves as we do from others.
  • Inclusivity: We invite the stranger and welcome the newcomer. We value and seek input from as wide a spectrum of viewpoints and experiences as possible.
  • Integrity: We act consistently with our beliefs. When we err, we acknowledge the mistake and seek to make amends.

The EMMS PTA Board of Directors meet monthly from 6:30 p.m to 7:30 p.m. in the Ellicott Mills Middle School Media Center. All members of the EMMS community are welcome and encouraged to attend!
