Parent-Teacher Association (PTA): Through its monthly meetings and different functions, the PTA provides a forum for collaboration among parents, teachers and administration. PTA members plan and implement special events and fundraising activities on behalf of the school. PTA-sponsored events have included an annual school carnival, a student art show, bake sales, and special family nights, in which each grade enjoys an evening of activities on a special theme, such as a Kindergarten Literacy Celebration or a First Grade Math Night.  PTA sub-committees provide opportunities to pursue special interests, such as the school’s newsletter, yearbook and arts programs. Elected PTA officers coordinate activities and represent the school in district and citywide meetings.
