Welcome Back to School, Merchantville Families! 
Hopefully, everyone has settled in, purchased new school clothes and supplies, adjusted to their new time schedules, and are ready to get back into the swing of school!

The Merchantville PTA, with its new Board members, is looking forward to an exciting year ahead, with lots of fun and educational activities planned.

Although we are a small school, we have a very strong and active PTA that contributes to and organizes many activities. This is something that we could not do without the ongoing support of the families and teachers who are committed to providing the best school environment for our children. 

It is for this reason, that each year we have a fall membership drive to encourage increased participation in our PTA. Membership runs from Oct 1st to Sept 30th each year. It is possible to join at any time throughout the year.

Families can join either by using a membership envelope that will be coming home soon in the brown envelopes with cash/check payment, or via the Internet.

Please share with your friends and/or families that are a part of the Merchantville Elementary School family. The more support and active participation we receive, the better we can serve the most important people in our lives, our children. 


Membership is valid for 1 year beginning October 1st - September 30th.

How to join: 

  • Fill out an envelope in the front office, attend a PTA meeting, or other event to complete and submit a membership form with dues. Checks are preferred.

  • New this year, you can also join online! Click on a button below to join as an individual member or as a family. 

What is the difference between Individual and Family Memberships?

  • Individual Memberships are for any one individual who would like to join the PTA. 

  • Family Memberships are for any two members of the same household who would like to join the PTA.

  • A Family Membership is for two adults. It does not make the entire "family" a member of the PTA. There is no obligation for both adults within a household to join the PTA. 

  • An Individual Membership is all that is needed for your child to participate in PTA events (when membership is required). However, voting rights are only extended to the named PTA member.
