The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a partnership between parents and educators who strive to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of the students within the school. It is also a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice their opinions about what is happening in their school. When you join Montclair PTA, you also join the California state and national PTA. Membership numbers count when PTA representatives lobby for support from Oakland Unified School District, the California Legislature, and in Congress.
Montclair has an excellent teaching staff and learning environment. We also have an active and committed PTA. As a community, we create a stimulating and successful school for our children. The PTA is an integral part of the school and we welcome your involvement. The PTA has been a part of Montclair School since 1926. This school is what it is today in part because of the dedication of parents. It’s the PTA that has brought the library and the computer lab and their respective teachers to the school, as well as vocal music and art. It has been parents who have erected the school gardens through the COMPOST program and have developed a first class emergency plan through the Health and Safety Committee.
Everyone — parents, educators, students and other citizens active in their schools and communities—is invited to join our not-for-profit organization.
For Your Child. Years of research have proven that children do better in school when their parents are involved, both at home and in school. Grades are higher. Self-esteem grows.
To Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in our school. You’ll meet other parents and teachers, build rapport, discuss issues that are on your mind, and have a voice.
To Be Part of the Solution. Montclair PTA plays an important role in fundraising to support curriculum-based programs including Library, Music, Art, Drama, Computer Science and other enrichment programs no longer covered by state or local funding. All of this is vital to our school’s—and your child’s—success.
