Dear PTA Leader:
You are a special and admirable person to step forward into volunteer leadership in your PTA. Thank you!
The materials available to you in the annual summer service mailing are designed to help you in all aspects of running your PTA, from advocating for children’s issues to gaining members to learning about the education system to understanding your bylaws.
As a community leader and representative of your local association, you set the tone for this year in PTA. Think of the ways you can make PTA meaningful for the children, families, and staff members of your school, council, or district.
This will be anything but a “normal” school year. Nonetheless, PTA is still — perhaps more than ever — a vital connection between schools, families, and the community. Families are looking for the latest information, and schools are checking for the wants and needs of students and their families. It is prime time for PTA to be a vehicle for honest communication and dissemination of the most current information.
Normally we send every leader a copy of these materials in the mail, but this year we are doing things a little differently!
There are now four ways to get the service mailing:
You'll also get a postcard in early August with this same information, so keep your eyes peeled. And to cover all our bases, we'll be posting the above links on our social media accounts over the next few weeks, so please share with any fellow leaders who may not have seen this message!
Empowering local leaders and supporting your work are essential functions of California State PTA. We are in
this together, working for all children, using our one voice. Thank you for all you do.
President, California State PTA
