Welcome Fellow Parents and Teachers!
We look forward to an exciting year in our district. Port SEPTA has planned a variety of speakers and programs for all levels, from preschool through high school and beyond. We are also pleased to continue to offer our very popular parent support group called “Second Cup” –a monthly meeting that is a great, informal way to meet other parents. Be sure to check meeting dates.
This year, we invite you to learn more about SEPTA. We are a district-wide PTA whose goal is to help every child in our district reach his/her fullest potential in the classroom. If you think your child is having difficulty, or have questions about resources in our school district, we encourage you to come to a SEPTA event or give us a call. Chances are, there is someone in our community that has had a similar experience and we can help connect you to him/her.
We both know first-hand how important it is to seek answers. As newcomers to the special education system many years ago, we were both uncertain about how to best advocate for our children. Port SEPTA provided us with information, helped answer our most dire questions and most importantly gave us a connection to other parents who understood how we were feeling.
We hope you will consider joining SEPTA to help support the programs and resources we provide. We also need your knowledge and experiences to help other parents.
