What is NRECHPTA?
The NRECHPTA is affiliated with the National PTA and Ohio PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and is centered on parents with children age birth to 6 years (and expectant parents too!). We are not affiliated with a specific school or religion. This PTA is for parents and care givers who reside in the city of North Ridgeville and surrounding areas.
Mission of the PTA:
To support and speak on behalf of the children and youth in the schools, community, and before governmental bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children.
To assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children.
To encourage parent and public involvement in the public schools of this nation.
