your family back to Shaker Road Elementary. The PTA Board members and committee chairs havebeen working on plans that will be sure to make the upcoming school year a great one!
Shaker Road’s PTA is
because of our volunteers. Our volunteers are dedicated parents,teachers, grandparents and loved ones who work to provide enriching activities to all Shaker Roadstudents. Shaker Road PTA accomplishes so much for our kids because of YOUR ideas, talents andtime given. In this era of dwindling school budgets, Shaker Road PTA continues to provide critical
supports for your child’s education.
The wonderful thing about Shaker Road PTA is when so manyparents pitch in to help, many hands make for lighter work for us all.
Our school’s motto is “Take the Shaker Road to Learning”, and our PTA wants to make it a road well
traveled. Please join us at our first PTA meeting on
