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.

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.

The Markham PTA Membership Drive is underway and your $25 per person contribution allows the PTA to enrich our student's experiences by supporting educational programs including the cultural arts assemblies, field trips, author visits, class parties, and other educational and social programs. PTA Membership also ensures you have access to the Markham Family Directory which is an invaluable tool for keeping in touch with other students and parents throughout the year!

New this year, you can purchase your membership online through MySchoolAnywhere Online Store -

If you prefer to use a paper form, you can fill out this form and return it in your child's red folder.

You'll receive your PTA membership card in your child's red folder.
