Sellersville Elementary School
Parents & Teachers United (PTU)
The PTU welcomes you to another exciting and fun-filled year at Sellersville Elementary School. Our PTU is very active in enriching our students’ educational experience. Every parent and faculty member is automatically a member of the PTU. This means you have a voice and a vote in the programs and activities sponsored by the PTU.
Parent involvement has a significant effect on their children’s education. When schools, families, and communities work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and enjoy school more. When parents get involved, grades go up, test scores rise, and behavior improves. Whether you have 30 minutes or a couple of hours, daytime or evening, your time, your ideas, and your talents are needed. Whatever your level of flexibility and talents, the Sellersville PTU always appreciates its parent volunteers, as do our teachers and staff. We need you to make this a successful year!
