The Century PTA began meeting in the 2001 - 2002 school year. Affiliated with the National PTA, Century PTA is committed to supporting the students, staff, and activities of Century school.

    Century PTA has three main goals:

    • To promote parent and community involvement
    • To provide parent education
    • To develop a united effort to help secure the highest advantages for all children


    Meetings will be held either the first Monday of every month at 6:30 pm in the Elementary Teacher's Lounge. Some meetings will have a short educational session, followed by the business meeting. We try to keep them less than one hour.

    Membership dues are $6.25 per person. Members are automatically part of the local, state, and National PTA. A scholarship fund is available for those who are unable to pay the membership fee.

    Childcare is available if needed.  Please contact Colleen Hoscheid at 701-212-0789 for childcare by the Sunday evening before.

    To reach a contact person for the Century PTA you may call Michelle Pickar at 237-6360 or send an email to pta@parkrapids.k12.mn.us.

    Through the PTA you can help strengthen the quality of life and education in the community. The PTA is a valuable link between home and school, providing both with important information benefiting your child/children. In this association, you join with parents, teachers, administrators, school board members, and other citizens to enhance educational and cultural opportunities for every child.
