Celebrating 100 Years of Advocating for Children
Hey fourth graders!
A new White House youth initiative to get all 4th graders and their families to experience the places that are home to our country’s natural treasures, rich history, and vibrant culture FREE OF CHARGE!
To help engage and create our next generation of park visitors, supporters and advocates, the White House, in partnership with the Federal Land Management agencies, launched the Every Kid in a Park initiative. The immediate goal is to provide an opportunity for each and every 4th grade student across the country to experience their public lands and waters in person throughout the 2015-2016 school year.
Beginning September 1st all kids in the fourth grade have access to their own Every Kid in a Park pass at www.everykidinapark.gov. This pass provides free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more!
The Every Kid in a Park pass is good for the 2015-2016 school year, until August 31, 2016. Information on obtaining the pass is available by visiting everykidinapark.gov.
Have you checked the status of your unit's incorporation?
If you are not considered "In Good Standing" by the Maryland Department of Assessments, you need to contact them (410-767-1350) to find out what is required to bring you into Good Standing. Not being in good standing can result in the loss of your incorporation and the protection it provides. It will cause your local to not be in good standing, and thus not be able to participate in several of our programs and benefits. This loss of standing by the MD Dept of State is usually a result of not filing your property tax report.
THIS REPORT NEEDS TO BE FILED WHETHER YOUR PTA/PTSA OWNS ANY PROPERTY OR NOT!!!

Your Contributions Make an Important Difference
Contributions to the Annual Fund are used for important programs and projects, as well as day-to-day operations at Maryland PTA. Since it is impossible for Maryland PTA to fund all of the worthy and important programs it would like to support, it must depend on the generosity of PTA members and supporters, through contributions to our Annual Fund.
Through the Annual Fund, PTA members and donors are able to have a profound and lasting impact on the broad community we represent—parents, teachers, students, and communities. Because of our donors and members demonstrated dedication, compassion, and commitment, PTA is able to address important community issues, such as arts in education, parent involvement and healthy lifestyles.
Your gift will be put to work immediately on behalf of all of Maryland’s children. Thank you for your support of PTA and its mission.
Annual Fund donations can be made online with the button below or simply mailing a check (made payable to Maryland PTA), a letter outlining the purpose of the gift, to the following address:
