The PTA provides opportunities for parents, teachers, and staff to work together and create a community of caring adults that help our children to learn and grow.

The PTA is the place to share your ideas, learn about the school and students, work with your students’ class, learn more about MRES by attending PTA meetings, and having fun.

Get involved – it directly benefits your student(s)! Children whose parents are involved in their education do better in school. Why not join the PTA today?

How much does it cost?

Annual Membership dues are:

  • $10 per MRES teacher or staff
  • $15 per parent, grandparent, or other individual
  • $25 per couple

Member dues pay for the basic operating costs of the PTA. Covering these costs with dues allows our fundraising efforts to go farther, supporting student field trips, student scholarships, family engagement events, and supplemental support for curriculum materials and school technology.  PTA Membership is annual and needs to be renewed every school year. For teachers and staff, being a member offers you the additional benefit of eligibility for professional development and project grants from the PTA.

Membership fees are not tax-deductible.  Membership envelopes are available in the Main Office, and will come home with your child during the first week of school.  You may pay by check or cash using the Membership envelope.

You may also pay with your credit card by going through the National PTA website at Once on this page, click on the state of Virginia. Next click on “Join Virginia PTA (Online Form)”. This will take you to a screen to log into your account (if you were a PTA members last year) or to create a new account. You can join all Virginia PTA units in this manner. At the “Join Your Local PTA” page, select “Virginia PTA” in the STATE drop down; “Marshall Road Elementary School PTA” in the LOCAL PTA drop down; and select the appropriate membership type under MEMBERSHIP TYPE.
