Welcome to our Palos Verdes Peninsula community!
The PVP Council of PTAs is proud to be part of the nation's largest volunteer association with a 125-year history of advocating for all children.
Our council consists of 16 PTAs and nearly 10,000 PTA members throughout the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District. We are excited to embark upon the 2023-24 school year to serve and support the hardworking and generous volunteers at each school as they enrich our children's daily educational experience. We continue to engage in positive and collaborative relationships with the board of education, school district administrators, staff, teachers, and with the wonderful families of our community to make this school year an exceptional one for all students.
In 2022-23, PVP PTAs donated over 43,000 hours to the benefit of our kids.
PTA would not exist without the efforts of thousands of parents and community volunteers.
THANK YOU for supporting our school community!
