November is Healthy Lifestyles Month

National PTA is committed to improving the overall health and well-being of families across the country because we know living a healthy lifestyle is a key component to our students' ability to thrive.   

The Healthy Lifestyles initiative offers educational resources and engagement opportunities that empower students and families to make better-informed health decisions. 

The Healthy Minds Program offers a Family Toolkit to promote incorporating positive mental health practices in to your daily lives.

Healthy Food

Between Halloween and Thanksgiving, fall is the season of good eats, drinks, and lots of treats.  According to a survey by Food Navigator USA, 42% of consumers plan to splurge on desserts this year. 

October is Family and School Safety Month

National PTA has teamed up with Kidde and LenelS2 for Family and School Safety Month to educate families on the importance of having working smoke alarms and practicing fire safety at home through Kidde's Cause For Alarm™ campaign. To help do this, Kidde has created a 60-second Cause For Alarm jingle—“Beeps That Last, Get Out Fast”—an actionable sing-a-long that helps children remember what to do in the event of a house fire. To get involved, share the jingle on social media and visit to learn more about fire safety.

Every family’s relationship with technology is unique. Google and YouTube provide products and resources to choose the right experience for your family and build healthy digital habits. Whether you’re looking to help your child safely explore the online world, or want to guide them to high-quality content on YouTube, our tailored product experiences empower kids and teens to watch, listen, play, learn, create, and communicate online.

Trick or Treat

Halloween fun comes with a dark side–children are twice as likely to be hit by a car on Halloween than any other day of the year. National PTA wants to make sure you have a great evening out with your trick-or-treaters while keeping them out of harm’s way
