Parent involvement has always been a contributing factor in the success of schooling. Students are more likely to achieve higher grades, have improved social skills, and have a greater network of community support.
Here are some thoughts from a few of the Ruskin students who recognize the importance of parent participation.

Why join the Parent Teacher and Student Association?
Participation from families and staff creates connections and produces a strong community that benefits all students.
Teachers are the backbone of our schools and we need to celebrate them and support them.
Assistance in the form of time, talent, funds, or goods helps to create a successful school experience.
"I really appreciate all that PTA does for us here at Ruskin. I know I will get a friendly smile and helpful attitude when speaking to any PTA member and that they'll do their best to make sure I get what I need. I am grateful for how much our PTA cares about the teachers, the students, and the school. They help make Ruskin the positive environment it is." ~Ms. Nancy Foster, Second Grade teacher
