Parents, teachers, and Georgia PTA officials gathered on Aug. 16 to charter the first ever Parent-Teacher-Student Association at Salem High School.

SHS Principal Tonya Bloodworth congratulated the committee on organizing Salem High School’s first PTSA and taking the ‘building’ to a new level. She noted the dedication of Salem’s faculty and parents and observed that the establishment of PTSA was an important piece in the success of the school and Salem students. 

According to a released statement, PTSAs provide youth members the opportunity to develop leadership skills, learn about the legislative process, increase their self-esteem, and contribute to the school. In turn, adult members gain a new perspective for program development and acquire a better understanding of the youth.
