Students – Join the PTSA Board

The Marcus PTSA is an organization whose purpose is to make our students experience better. Sharon Goldblatt, former Texas PTA President, had a great way to think about what the PTA represents: “A booster club for all kids.”

Our mission –

To make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

Marcus PTSA is a unique organization in that students can join the PTSA and lend their voice to the other members in an effort to help create a stronger educational system locally and throughout Texas. Closer to home, the students can go further and join the PTSA Board and help shape the direction at Marcus!

Hello and Welcome to the Marcus High School PTSA website. The purpose of this website is to serve our PTSA members with valuable information. As the Marcus PTSA President this year, my goal is to enhance communication. In doing this we can more effectively meet the goals as a PTSA board, teacher, staff and student members. We are here to partner together in meeting educational goals through programs, scholarships, and our new teacher grant program. If you as a teacher need help getting educational tools for your classroom, we would like to partner with you, and see that goal take place. If you as a student, teacher or parent have a suggestion for a program to enhance our students awareness, please let us hear from you. Together, we can make a difference.

I’m looking forward to serving with all of you this year.

Marcus PTSA President

As teachers and parents, we are creating an opportunity for our students to excel in multiple areas such as academics, athletics, and the fine arts. PTSA works as a bridge between Marcus and our community of parents and students. As a strong supporter of public education, PTSA supports our school as an advocate and resource.
