Parent Teacher Association



PLEASE NOTE: April's meeting has been rescheduled for Tuesday, April 4th at 6:00pm, and will be held virtually. We look forward to seeing you then!


Important upcoming event:

Elections for the Parent Teacher Association Leadership for the upcoming school year!

Elections will be held at the May 3rd PTA meeting. Open positions include president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer, as well as those interested in joining the School Leadership Team. Any parent or legal guardian of a student at Maker Academy is eligible to run for any office. You can also recruit someone to join you and serve in a "co" capacity!  Be a part of the Maker PTA Leadership! Please join us at the April meeting to hear more about the positions and the election process from the Nominating Committee. 



We are excited about sharing some of the great activities and events we have planned ahead, as well as providing you with useful resources. Minutes from previous PTA meetings are available below. Make sure to scroll down to the bottom of this letter so you don’t miss any important information.
The PTA is run by volunteer parents who organize meetings, schedule speakers, plan community activities, and host fundraisers for the UA Maker community. One of the main objectives of the PTA is to raise much needed funds to bridge the gap between what the DOE provides and the enrichment and resources that our students deserve. Our calendar will be filled with fabulous events, which may include:
  • Parent-student engagement activities
  • Parent-student involvement workshops
  • Friendly competition
  • Financial Literacy Seminars
  • School Camaraderie Events
  • Establishing community partnerships
  • Guest speakers
  • Potlucks
  • Career Fairs & Workshops
  • Fundraisers - UA Maker Merchandise sales, Bake sales, Book and Novelty sales, Raffles, Online auctions and fundraisers
  • Chances to win tickets to arts, theater and comedy performances


Warm regards,

Shannon Barber, President

Sasha Rodriguez, Vice President

Carlie Steen, Secretary

Lorelei Schroeter, Treasurer
