    The Midway Council PTA is composed of representatives from each of our ten local campus PTAs and the MISD Administration. It is governed by an elected Executive Board. The Council is a community branch of the Texas PTA and National PTA put in place to counsel, support, organize, arbitrate and communicate with the local Midway campus PTAs.

     

    The Purposes of the Midway ISD Council of Parent Teacher Associations, in common with those of the National PTA and the Texas PTA, are:

    a.       to promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community, and place of worship

    b.      to raise the standards of home life

    c.       to secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth

    d.      to bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth         

    e.      To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social,  and spiritual education
