Joining Eddins PTA is Easy as 1-2-3!
Whether you're new to Eddins or just to our Eddins PTA site, there's a lot to keep track of during the school year. We understand and hope to help ease some of your "To Do" list by making the back to school process easier. Follow the steps outlined below to help your family transition smoothly and seamlessly into the Eddins community.
Our community is based on active family involvement - and it's the best way to support all of our Wildcat students. Your generous contributions of time, talent, and resources throughout the year make an incredible difference in our school, and knowing we're all invested in their success means so much to the students, teachers and staff. Let's make this school year great!

- Like us on Facebook.
A simple way to keep in-touch with day-to-day school events and activities, our Facebook account provides timely reminders to help families prepare for what's next on the Eddins school calendar.
- Request an updated background check. McKinney ISD requires every volunteer, whether NEW or RETURNING, to submit a background check each school year. Please remember, if you are planning to volunteer at anytime this year, or attend class parties or field trips, you must have a completed background check on file. Note that volunteer applications may take up to two weeks to be processed, so be sure to start the process early.
- Get involved.
It's no secret the heart of our PTA is our many, many volunteers. We have volunteer opportunities open for activities during school hours and outside of school hours. Whether you can spare time regularly or just once in a while, your help is needed and very much appreciated. Explore the listing of our school-wide needs and let us know which volunteer opportunities are of interest to you.
