Ridgefield Council of PTAs

 

The Ridgefield Council of PTAs, with 9 local-unit PTAs, is the umbrella organization for the PTAs in Ridgefield.  The council serves as a liaison to the CT PTA, as well as with the school administration and the community.

 

For more than 100 years, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has provided support, information and resources to families focused on the health and education of children. As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, PTA reminds our country of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child while providing the best tools for parents to help their children be successful students.

Kindergarten Parents:  Join a Circle!

Once again this Fall, the Town of Ridgefield, Ridgefield Schools and your PTA are sponsoring Kindergarten Parent Circles. These circles provide a forum in which Kindergarten parents can get to know fellow parents who may be dealing with similar issues, while benefiting from the knowledge and experience of a professional family therapist and facilitator. The first four sessions are facilitated, after which the circle can continue on a self-guided basis with the facilitator as a resource. 
 
Both morning and evening circles are being offered. Click here for details about times and registration.
