What is the Stoddert PTA?

Parents, in close collaboration with the school principal, teachers, and staff, facilitate dozens of events, programs, and activities throughout the year. For more information, please see PTA-Sponsored Programs.

We need your help! Support Stoddert and your child’s education by volunteering for the PTA. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved. Please contact to learn more.
