About PTA

Esther Jackskon PTA is an association of school, parents, teachers and students
working together in the best interest of the Esther Jackson school community.  Membership in the PTA is a right of every Esther Jackson family and an opportunity to provide additional benefits to our students and teachers. The PTA provides support to Math & Reading enrichment, field trip transportation, the student directory, student planners and yearbook, as well as in-school activities such as Back-to-School Bash, Fall Festival, Grandparents Day, Vision & Hearing Screening, Field Day, 5th Grade Party and Sock Hop. Finally, and most importantly, the PTA answers the special requests of our school and teachers to support special opportunities above and beyond those provided by the Fulton County curriculum.
