Become a PTA Member

  • All families are encouraged to become PTA members. PTA Membership is only $10 per person for the entire school year.  PTA membership dues help to support our programs. While we encourage all parents to participate in events, PTA members are not required to volunteer at events, or attend membership meetings. 

    By joining PTA, you are adding your voice to advocacy efforts on behalf of all children, helping your local PTA, and sending a strong message that you support children and families.  Research has proven that students achieve higher grades, have better attendance, and more consistently complete homework when parents are involved. And, joining PTA is a great way to get involved and to meet other active parents! 


    How much is PTA Membership?

    INDIVIDUAL: PTA individual membership is only $10 per member per school year.

    FAMILY: PTA family membership is only $30 per school year for up to 4 members.

    With your membership, receive membership discounts and perks from the California PTA and National PTA.
