Annual Meeting & Founders’ Day Celebration

This year's Annual Meeting and Founders' Day Celebration was a resounding success at our new venue! We were delighted to connect with so many of you on February 28, 2024, at the Sharp Prebys Innovation & Education Center.

The Ninth District PTA conducted the business of our association seamlessly. It was an inspirational event where we celebrated outstanding teachers and community members. We also proudly announced the winners of our Membership Challenge and Grants!

WHAT IS FOUNDERS' DAY?Birney Hearst Butler

The Founders' Day celebration was created in 1910 by Mrs. David O. Mears, a charter member of the National Congress of Mothers founded by Alice McLellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst in Washington, D.C., February 17, 1897.

The Founders' Day observance has continued through the change of organization names in 1925 to the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, and the uniting in 1970 with the National Congress of Colored Parents and Teachers, founded in 1926 by Selena Sloan Butler, to become the National PTA (A Brief History: Working Together for Children Since 1897). - CAPTA.ORG
