Programs / Events
Arizona PTA offers many programs to increase family engagement and support the educational success, health and well-being of all children.
2020-2021 Teacher of the Month
We can't forget the “T” in PTA! These are the people we normally trust to watch over and teach our children every school day. Arizona PTA rolled out our Teacher of the Month Program in September 2015. Over the past 5 years, we have honored 50 teachers of the month and 5 Teachers of the Year with about $12,500 in awards and certificates.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year is quite different in myriad ways, but we still want to honor those educators who are doing their best to adapt and learn new methods to keep our children engaged and learning what they need to know. Arizona PTA is seeking nominations for amazing PTA member Teachers who show creativity in the classroom (or online). Submissions for Teacher of the Month are due by the 13th of each month. Please submit one teacher per PTA per month from your school. Monthly Teacher winners will receive a monetary award and a certificate for Teacher of the Month. All monthly winners are then considered for Teacher of the Year at the Arizona PTA State Convention where the winner will receive $1000.
If your nominee is chosen, we will ask you for a photo of your nominee. A photo of the nominee and the nomination will be posted in the AZ PTA Newsletter and on our Facebook page.
Nominations are OPEN for '20-'21 awards!!
2021 Arizona PTA Convention
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Arizona PTA held an interactive virtual 2020 convention. We will be holding our 2021 Convention in the previously chosen location at Flagstaff, Arizona in June of 2021! More info to come.
