Binks Forest PTA Honored For Student Advocacy

The Binks Forest Elementary School PTA won several awards last week from the County Council of PTA/PTSA. The annual awards event is designed to thank all 58 units from across the county for their hard work, important programs and dedication they provide to members.

PTA President Jen Martinez said the organization is fortunate to have dedicated members.

“We’re extremely lucky to have such wonderful leaders and volunteers to help parents and the communities realize the importance of their participation in every child’s education,” she said. “To consider that as a total the Rock Stars of PTA gave just over 450,000 hours — which is worth over $9 million in support of every child — is incredible.”

This event is one way the council says “thank you” to local units for displaying incredible gifts of time and talent treasures supporting the mission and purpose of PTA.

Binks Forest Elementary School PTA members earned the Community Connection Award, the School Administrator of the Year Award and the Spotlight Award.
