PTA resignation letters (5 samples)

This blog post will show you samples of “Resignation letters from PTA.”

Writing a “PTA resignation letter.”

You can step down from PTA by composing a formal letter addressed to the leader of the PTA and any other relevant parties. Highlight your reasons for leaving and reiterate your official date of departure. When writing a “PTA resignation letter,” these are some of the things that you need to keep in mind.

  • The first step is to tell the committee about leaving the position and the final work date. Keep it short as the essential part of the letter is the Last Date as a member.
  • Indicate the reason you are leaving. It would be best to be polite as you will leave a positive impression on the committee. Maintain your composure when drafting the letter.
  • Finally, thank the committee for the position and the opportunities you have enjoyed during your work period.
  • Ensure you proofread your letter before sending it to the committee. You can send the letter to your family and friend to check for grammatical errors.

Sample 1:

“Dear Ms. Williams,

I am writing to tell you that I am resigning from my position as the events coordinator on the PTA Committee. As you know, I have recently given birth to my third child and this has caused my family to evaluate its priorities. Unfortunately, the demands of work and family mean that I no longer have the time to devote to coordinating events for the committee. I hope you understand. My last day as the events coordinator will be two weeks from now, May 15, 2014.

I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause to you. I would be happy to devote some time over the next two weeks to transferring my responsibilities over to a replacement coordinator. If you would like to discuss this with me further, I hope you will contact me at (555)-555-5555 or [email] I look forward to hearing with you.

Serving on the PTA Committee has been a great experience and I am happy to have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people in planning these events for our children. Thank you for your cooperation and patience with me at this time.

Yours sincerely,

Bethany Page”

Dear Mrs. Douglas,

I’m writing to inform you of my resignation from my position as a member of the PTA at Hawkridge Elementary. You may be aware that I recently had my second child, and I have decided to take time away from my professional and social commitments to take care of my newborn daughter full time for the next two years. This means my last day with the PTA is January 1, 2021.

I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, and I thank you for allowing me to be a part of my child’s school and community. The relationships I’ve made with other parents are invaluable and am so proud of the PTA initiatives I was able to contribute to during my membership**. I’m happy to assist you by suggesting other parents who may make positive contributions to the PTA and may be able to finish the projects I started.

I wish you and all the other committee members the best, and I look forward to seeing the exciting initiatives that support our students and teachers at Hawkridge Elementary. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with your questions or concerns.

Dear Ms. Roth,

Please accept this letter as my resignation from my position as treasurer with the Company Name PTA. My final day acting in this capacity will be April 28, 2015. I have decided to return to school and am no longer able to handle the time commitment this position requires.

I’d like to take this time to thank you for the opportunities I have had to learn and to work with a wonderful team. I’ve enjoyed working to help the school’s fundraising efforts on behalf of our children. I feel that someone with more free time would better dedicate themselves to this important position.

I will be sure to take the time to complete all of the paperwork for the month and reconcile the books. I’m happy to assist in transferring the duties to the new treasurer and getting him or her up to speed on everything. Should you require anything else of me, don’t hesitate to reach out to 000-000-0000.

Dear Ms. Wilson,

I am writing this correspondence to let you know that I will be resigning from my position as fundraising chair for the Company Name PTA. I have recently accepted a full time job outside the home and no longer can devote the time needed to take on my chair responsibilities. My last day serving the PTA will be October 3, 2014. Please consider this my formal two weeks’ committee resignation letter.

I hope this does not cause the committee a great deal of inconvenience. I will be happy to dedicate some time over the next two weeks to assist in streamlining existing projects and in helping an interim chair to get acquainted with the committee responsibilities. Please feel free to call me at 000-000-0000 if you should need to speak with me.

It has been a pleasure serving on the PTA and leading the fundraising committee. I have enjoyed working with my fellow volunteers and helping to make our school a better place. I wish you all success in the future and thank you for your understanding.

“Dear members,

It is with sadness that I must resign my position as coordinator of the PTA Committee. My family will be moving out of state on October 1 and I will no longer be able to fulfill my duties. I will be more than willing to stay on for two more weeks to help find and train a replacement.

I am proud of the work we have done together with the committee and know that we made some very positive changes to people’s lives. I am especially proud of the children’s center that we were able to build with funds raised through a variety of functions. I know that my children enjoyed using the center while we lived in the area.

I am certain that the society will find an adequate replacement and continue to do its good work. I want to thank you for the way you have personally helped me to improve as a person and for the things that you have taught me over the years. If you need to contact me, please feel free to call me at 000-000-0000 or email me at

Sincerely Yours,

Tamara R. Hope”
