We hope you'll take a few minutes to explore this section of the website to see how your PTA makes a difference for each and every child at LeGette Elementary.
JOIN THE PTA!
As the backbone of LeGette Elementary, the LeGette PTA provides leadership, funding, and support for student programs, parent education, and school community-building events. For just $10.00 per person per year you can support PTA with your membership (meetings and volunteering are optional). PTA meetings are open to anyone and are a great way to get information about PTA and what's happening in the school. (Click on the link on the left "PTA Meetings" for the dates & times.) However, only PTA members may vote. Be a member to have a VOICE! Membership forms are available in the school office.
OUR CONNECTION TO THE CALIFORNIA & NATIONAL PTA
The California State PTA (California Congress of Parents, Teachers, and Students, Inc.) is a branch of the National PTA, serving as a connecting link between the national organization and its membership within the state.
The National PTA (National Congress of Parents and Teachers) is a volunteer educational organization, founded in Washington, D.C., in 1897. Branches of the National PTA have been established in all 50 United States, the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands, and in schools for American dependents in Europe and the Pacific area.
Not all decisions affecting a child’s school happen at the local level. That’s why, from day one, it has been the mission of National PTA to address the needs of all children. Children in every school. In every state. Across the entire nation. Even if you’re not a member, PTA still works for your child.
We have the vision and determination to push for national education policies. We have been a driving force in establishing school lunch programs, after-school care, immunization programs, school bus safety, and television rating standards, before they became law. Today our government relations professionals are addressing the importance of parent involvement, safe and nurturing environments, and support for public schools. And together, with your membership, we can do even more.
