Like the school it serves, Ezra Meeker Elementary PTA 5.7.30 has a rich history of service, innovation, and excellence. Founded in October of 1981, Meeker Elementary PTA has enriched the students, families, and local community for more than 30 years.

Highlights 

  • Meeker PTA is the only PTA outside of the Bellevue/Issaquah/Sammamish area to have achieved 100% membership for the past four years. Making Meeker PTA one of the strongest PTA’s in the state.
  • Our association's strong foundation in advocacy has fostered volunteer leaders who have successfully rallied for the addition of a lighted crosswalk at the school's 5th Street entrance and the continued focus on highly capable funding by state legislators.
  • The Puyallup PTA Council's annual Golden Acorn Award recognizing excellence in volunteerism has been awarded to an entire board of directors only two times in 50 years - both times to a Meeker Elementary PTA Board of Directors.
  • Many of Meeker PTA's leaders have moved on to volunteer leadership roles at the Puyallup PTA Council and regional, Washington State PTA, and National PTA levels.
  • Meeker PTA granted funds to the Puyallup School District to fund the purchase of 50 laptops and two laptop carts for the school. Prior to this technology purchase, Meeker had one of the highest student-to-computer ratios in the school district. Thanks to this technology purchase, our school now has one of the lowest computer-to-student ratios in the district.
  • Meeker PTA is responsible for the purchase of the school's electronic reader board and playground addition.
