New Mexico PTA
Male Participation Conference 2017

Friday, April 7, 2017
9:00am – 1:30pm

Registration is now open for the NMPTA Male Participation Conference at:

¡Explora! 1701 Mountain Rd NW, Albuquerque, NM 87104

Thanks to a Noyce Foundation grant, NMPTA is able to offer this Conference FREE to participants from PTA schools and at a low registration cost of $20 per person to non-PTA schools.  The Conference includes morning coffee, lunch and materials.

The Conference focus is involving men – fathers, grandfathers, uncles and significant male role models – in the lives of their students in school and at home.  Research shows that when men are engaged in their children’s learning experiences, children are better academic achievers, are more likely to enjoy school, and are more likely to grow up to be tolerant and understanding individuals.  Children benefit from warm and nurturing relationships with men and men are most likely to develop those sort of relationships in environments that value, support and encourage them.

NMPTA has arranged time with ¡Explora! Personnel, who will be demonstrating simple hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities that can be easily replicated in the classroom, at evening school events, and at home!  In addition, there will be a presentation from APS Coordinated School Health on “Why Attendance Matters”.  What are best practices in getting men involved at elementary, middle and high school?  Hear from presenters on how they involve men at their school.

Registration is limited to the first 50 people so don’t delay!  Make certain to invite a member of your school community to attend with you.  Change happens when a team of people are engaged.  Please follow the link here to register.

NMPTA looks forward to seeing you at this special event!
