“To build bridges between homes and schools,
integrating the efforts of parents
with those of principals and teachers.”
National PTA and California State PTA are tax exempt under
Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). As such, they maintain
strict adherence to its requirements in order to retain
that exemption. The PTA is a noncommercial, noneactarian and
nonpartisan organization. These basic policies must be part
of every PTA's bylaws.
“The mission of the California State PTA is to positively impact
the lives of all children and families by representing our members
and empowering our members and supporting them with skills
in advocacy, leadership, and communication.”
- California State PTA Board of Managers, July 2007
What this means to you is that at EARTHS Magnet School your PTA works hard with the school's administration to:
- Improve every child's education experience
- To make sure all the children have at their disposal the latest education tools and up-to-date technology
- That they are exposed to arts, music and physical education
The PTA is made up of mothers and fathers just like you who want to make all of the above a reality for all the children at EARTHS Magnet School. Our organization supports many of the programs offered at our school.
It is very important that every family at EARTHS Magnet School is represented in our PTA. You can do so by becoming a member. The EARTHS Magnet School PTA carries our concerns, issues and requests to the highest levels of district council. By having each family represented in our PTA, we have a stronger voice to get our needs heard and met. Help us be heard!
We also encourage you to help out, as families of EARTHS, your participation is required three hours per month. You can help in the many committees we have or work in your child's classroom. By helping your PTA you are telling your child that his/her education is important to you. We look forward to meeting you and your family. Welcome to our EARTHS Magnet School Community.
