Be sure to include your child’s teacher when you register online so that we can credit his/her class. We have two membership contests for this year: there will be a popsicle party for the class who gets 100% first, and every class that gets 100% by November 15th will get an extra $150 towards classroom supplies! Classes that earn 100% after 11/15 will get $100.

What Does Your Membership Provide? Membership gives you a voice at our school! Come to our meetings, hear what’s happening, and help in the decision making. Higher membership #s = more representation at the state level to have our voice heard on education issues that impact our children too.

Our goal is 100% participation for each class and a 1-1 ratio…we want our membership # to be equal to our total student population! Can you help us reach that goal?

Membership Perks

Membership is only $10 ($11 online) and doesn’t require any type of commitment from you. It doesn’t mean you need to go to PTA meetings or volunteer. Although of course, you can! It does give you the right to vote at our meetings and it does give us a bigger representation at the state level.

 

Continuing Education Scholarships

Did you know that California State PTA offers several scholarships for PTA members? To help school professionals and volunteers continue their educations, California State PTA is proud to offer $500 scholarships for credentialed teachers and counselors, school nurses and PTA volunteers.

All scholarship applications require two references and application forms can be completed online. All scholarships require current membership at PTAs in good standing – which means that as leaders, you can advertise this as a perk of joining PTA as part of your membership drives! learn more and apply at www.capta.org/scholarships.

Applications must be received in the California State PTA office by October 15 by 5 p.m.
