Become a Member
By joining the PTA, you become part of an organization dedicated to maintaining quality educational and enrichment programs in your child's school. PTA membership dues are necessary for the Barnsley PTA to remain recognized as a PTA under the umbrella of the Maryland PTA and the Montgomery County Council of PTAs. Some of your PTA membership dues will also be used to support our annual budget which funds important opportunities for our students such as grade-based grants, field trips, and some classroom materials. The majority of our PTA's funding, however, does not come from PTA membership dues, but from our other fundraisers such as the Spooktacular, International Night, Book Fairs, Show Your Love for Barnsley, and many more.
