PTA meeting

Welcome!

As Kocurek parents, we want our kids to be successful. By joining the PTA, you can show your children school matters and that you are invested in their experience. It has been proven kids learn better when parents, teachers and community work together. Kocurek PTA hopes to bring these groups together to share ideas on how to create programs and activities that benefit our student body.

Some parents of Kocurek Koalas may not realize it, but the Kocurek Elementary PTA does a lot more than throw awesome parties and fun fundraisers.

Here are some of the things we do to support our teachers, enhance our students’ education, make Kocurek’s campus the best that it can be, and strengthen our community’s bonds between parents, teachers and students.

Lifting up students

  • We provide funding for a 4th grade summer writing camp
  • Our fundraisers help pay for grade-level requests such as field trips and other programs
  • The food, decor and helpers you see at 5th grade graduation–That’s us
  • We provide the snacks and drinks at Field Day for all students
  • We give scholarships to Kocurek Alumni graduating from AISD high schools
  • We organize the Reading Rocket program for Kindergarten and 1st grade

Supporting teachers

  • On holidays and during Teacher Appreciation Week, we decorate the teacher’s lounge and provide food and help

Campus improvements
