WA-WM PTA Council

Founder's Day & PTA History

Wisconsin PTA was founded on June 7, 1910, by Agnes Betts and our first president was Mrs. R J Sullivan from Milwaukee.  Some of the early issues that PTA was successful in influencing were:

  • Required Kindergarten
  • Required Teacher Certification
  • Literacy
  • Better Movies/Movie Going Habits for Children

More than 100 years later, we are still going strong.  National and Wisconsin PTA provide support and training to the WA-WM PTA Council who in turn provides support and training to local units in the West Allis-West Milwaukee school district.  Visit the Wisconsin PTA and National PTA websites to find out more information how they are working to advocate all children.

Come & celebrate Founder's Day at the WA-WM PTA Council Carnival held at the West Allis Central H.S.!
