Louisiana PTA Family Focus Day

Louisiana State PTA is hosting a new event this year instead of a convention with traditional workshops – Family Focus Day  - January 18, 2020.


Our plan for this day incorporates National PTA’s Four ‘I’s of Family Engagement: Inclusive, Individualized, Integrated, and Impactful. Our sessions – Drug Awareness, Emotional Health, Childhood Hunger, and Avoiding Burnout – were selected because these are topics parents care about right now. 


This year’s featured speaker is Ms. Tonja Myles. She has spoken on topics related to addiction, trauma, sexual abuse, mental health and suicide. Ms. Myles is open and honest about her own life experiences in these areas and her path from victim to survivor. More information on Ms. Myles is available at: www.trainedtofightwhilewounded.com/about 


PTA/PTSA members whose registration is postmarked by December 1st, attend for FREE! We hope to see you there.  


Registration information and hotel reservations are available on the Louisiana State PTA website at this link: http://www.louisianapta.com/lpta-ffd-and-conventions.html


Location is at the Hilton Hotel, 901 Airline Drive, Kenner, LA

Cultural Arts

 A new school year means new opportunities to share your artist's work!   Art offers children a unique means of expression, capturing their passions and emotions and fostering the exploration of new ideas, subject matter, and cultures. Each year, we invite students from our district to share their creative talents by entering our three annual contests. 


St. Tammany District PTA celebrates with Gray Hernandez, who was a National PTA Reflections Award of Merit Winner in the 2018-2019 Photography Division!!  Gray was a student at Woodlake Elementary when his entry titled " Mom: My Assistant Principal, My Hero" won in the Primary category.
