About the PTA

The Markham PTA is a parent-run organization dedicated to enriching our children's education.


Edwin Markham Elementary School PTA is a unit member of the Mt. Lebanon Council PTA, the Pennsylvania PTA, and the National PTA. We welcome and appreciate the support of all parents/guardians and teachers and encourage both to join and be active members of Markham Elementary School's PTA. An active PTA enhances the school experience for all our students.

We have five PTA meetings from September to May. Join us to keep up on the latest news and share your concerns and ideas.

New for the 2016-2017 school year, we are using MySchoolAnywhere to communicate with our families. This system allows us to streamline signing up for PTA membership, the Messenger and the Directory.
