California School PTA welcomes you to an exciting 2016-2017school year! The PTA is a volunteer organization with membership open to everyone:  parents, grandparents, neighbors, teachers and students. The purpose of the PTA is to promote parent and community involvement and to ensure our children receive the best physical,  mental and social education. We invite you to join our PTA and become part of the largest child advocacy group in the state!

Here at California School, the PTA provides enrichment programs such as Art Masters and Walk Through History, and exciting assemblies like the Imagination Machine. The PTA also hosts Book Fairs and brings the community together through family events like the popular Halloween Hoot and Pottery & Shopping Night. 

We would love to have all Cougar families join the PTA. Your membership is free of obligation and comes with discounted benefits through the state and national PTAs. Being a PTA member gives families an opportunity to be more involved in social events and assemblies, provides a forum for exchanging ideas and shows your child that you support their school. Getting involved is easy and we encourage and welcome your participation!   PTA Association meetings are open to everyone, so please join us! 


We look forward to connecting with you!
