PTA Membership is easy and low cost. Suggested dues are $5 for the year, but money is not a barrier to membership. Please reach out directly at with questions.


If you can contribute $5 for membership, there are no other commitments or expectations–you’re simply showing your support for our great students, school, parents, and staff. For those who are able to give more, we have booster memberships available, or you can just make an additional donation to the PTA (one-time or ongoing), of any amount.

Your membership supports programs that enhance learning at Oakton and strengthen our community. Specifically, the Oakton PTA funds

  • Evanston's oldest free Chess Club, all year long outdoors and indoors

  • Oakton's Fall Festival, an outdoor community party

  • The Teacher Fund, which provides $6,000 annually in grants to Oakton teachers to enhance classroom learning

  • Investments in library books, the Oakton Student Garden, school beautification and enrichment, musical instruments for band, and scholarships for extracurriculars,

  • Appreciation activities for our Teachers/Admin/Staff throughout the year

  • Free books from Story Store

  • Celebrations of our 5th grade graduates and all grade levels with end of year activities

  • and MORE! 





A portion of the dues also go to the Illinois PTA association.  


PTA members have an opportunity to vote on budget matters and help guide the direction of the PTA’s work and programming. 


Members also enjoy discounts at many supportive businesses such as AARP, Hertz, MetLife, Schwan’s Cares, Staples, Sylvan Learning Centers, Boxed Wholesale, and TeenSafe. More details of these PTA benefits can be found at the National PTA website.
