Maercker District 60 PTA

Our PTA supports students and teachers from PreK through 8th grade across all 3 District 60 schools. We fund and run student enrichment programs like the national arts competition Reflections, Cultural Festival, and Science Fair (on top of some fun events.) We also fund school initiatives like One Book, One School, curriculum support materials, equipment, field trips, and more!

Named a 2020-22 National PTA School of Excellence for our commitment to building Family Connections, we strive to support every child, teacher, and family in our rich and diverse community.  Browse our site and discover what we do for our community.
