Clara Barton PTSA Mission


Our Mission: To provide children, families, and staff with the resources and opportunities necessary to make every child's potential a reality.


The Clara Barton Elementary Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA), a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization, bridges the gap between what state funding provides and what our community envisions children need for success.


The PTSA provides support through an Enrichment Program for students, Events & Programs for students and families, education for parents and guardians, and Bobcat Grants for teachers.
