Welcome to the Rockburn Elementary School PTA website. We are a community of families, teachers and staff working together to enrich the educational experience of all students.
 
Rockburn Elementary has an energetic PTA!

The PTA provides a wide range of programs and activities to support its teachers, students and families. We hope our website will help you understand, navigate and find the programming of greatest interest to you and your family.

All parents are welcome to join the PTA and to attend PTA meetings. Your PTA contribution and membership helps fund many programs throughout the year such as Cultural Arts Assemblies, Family Involvement Events, our Young Author Program, Summer Push Up Books, 5th grade Signature Shirts, Sports Park Night, Bingo Night, Holiday Shop, School Gifts, Teacher Appreciation, and enhancements to our recess and PE programs.

Rockburn is a strong and vibrant school community thanks to the time and energy many parents and guardians devote to the school. We hope you will join in the vital contributions of the PTA.
