Congratulations to our 2016 NMPTA Proud! Award winners!!!

  • Standard #2: Communicating Effectively – Osuna Elementary PTA, Albuquerque –
    For expanding their range of communications to reach every parent.
  • Standard #3: Supporting Student Success – Osuna Elementary PTA, Albuquerque – For inspiring their students to become authors.
  • Standard #4: Speaking Up For Every Child – Gadsden Middle School PTSA, Gadsden – For solving the mystery of the uneaten school lunch!

Winning PTAs received 2 free registrations to the annual NMPTA convention, special recognition at the convention, and an opportunity to share their story at a convention workshop.
