Benefits of PTA Membership
Each school operates as an independent PTA to best serve the needs of their students and community. In Palos Verdes, schools are part of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Council of PTAs, which has its own officers. As part of the local, State and National PTA, each school PTA has access to over 100 years of information, research, and experience. Joining PTA supports local, state and national efforts to improve the education of children and the lives of families. Membership provides the opportunity for individuals to raise their voices with others throughout the state and nation on issues affecting children, youth and families.
PTA members help decide the most important issues affecting our community and membership dues fund all levels of advocacy. PTA membership also provides parents an opportunity to be involved in their child's education and to provide programs supported nationally and statewide such as:
- Reflections Art Program
- Red Ribbon Week
- Yellow Ribbon Week
- Family Engagement Programs
- Student Scholarships
- Community and Wellness Fairs
- and so much more!
Palos Verdes PTAs advocate on behalf of all children at our 16 PTA units on behalf of our nearly 10,000 members. PVP PTA members further enhance their children's education experience by supporting Art at Your Fingertips, Disaster Preparedness, educational programs and field trips. High school students can apply for Council and State scholarships. Our parent volunteer an average of 250,000 hours annually in the classroom and through PTA-sponsored activities.
