The Los Angeles Tenth District PTSA wants to thank all the hardworking and dedicated volunteers in making the schools, community and neighborhoods a much better place for all of our children!

This Thanksgiving, California State PTA is giving thanks to the thousands of volunteers and members throughout the state that positively impact the lives of all children and families.

As the nation’s largest and highest profile child-advocacy organization, California State PTA and its volunteers and members connect families and schools and promote the education, health and welfare of all children and youth.

Last year, PTA volunteers contributed more than 13 million hours in their classrooms, schools and communities. Those hours are valued at $332 million in contribution to positively impact the lives of all children and families. PTA volunteers plan field trips, assist in classrooms, promote parent engagement, organize fundraisers, speak up on important children’s issues and take care of the daily needs of the local association and more.

“The work of PTA would not be possible without the countless hours our dedicated volunteers give each year to support our children and schools,” said California State PTA President Dianna MacDonald.

Through advocacy and the support of families and the community, PTA has established programs and called for legislation to improve the lives of all children, such as creating kindergarten classes, child-labor laws, public-health services, hot-and-healthy lunch programs and arts in education.

California State PTA has a long tradition of speaking up and speaking out on behalf of all children and families at national, state, regional and local levels.  Join your local PTA and be the voice for all children.
