WHAT do we do? We help organize fundraising activities and events to engage the students, teachers and families in our children's success.


WHERE do we meet? We meet at ALMS in Ram Hall.


WHEN do we meet? The general PTA meetings will meet at 6:30pm every other month on the second Wednesday beginning September 12, 2018. Please see School calendar for actual dates.


WHY do we need a PTA? Strong family-school partnerships make big differences. When families and schools work together, our kids win.


CA State PTA. Well-informed, engaged parents make a difference for

student success in school and beyond. A home environment that encourages learning is a bigger factor in student achievement than a parent's income, education level or cultural background. Whether it's reading together, monitoring homework at the kitchen table, talking to teachers about a child's progress, joining PTA or taking an active part in school governance and decision-making, parent involvement is vital to student achievement.
