Many parents wonder, Why join PTSA at the middle school? What do they do? PTSA does PLENTY! Here are just some of the important contributions PTSA makes on behalf of our adolescents. As members, we...
- Sponsor Ribbon Week which promotes healthful physical and emotional behavior choices and personal self-worth.

We encourage parents and students to join Elk Ridge PTSA. There are multiple ways to purchase a PTSA membership.

All students involved in Memory Book and PTSA Ambassadors are required to purchase a Student Membership.
