Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA)

PTSA's mission is to empower families to advocate for students.

You can join our PTA via TOTEM, which is the California State PTA online membership system that makes joining and renewing PTA membership easier for parents, families and community members. 

It's easy and convenient and will only take you a few minutes to join. Once you've joined, you can download your membership card.
