A group calling itself the “Parent Teacher Alliance (PTA) Political Action Committee” — run by the California Charter Schools Association Independent Expenditure Campaign (PAC) — is once again running a political campaign, this time in the Los Angeles Unified School District, under the false banner of our trademarked name and renowned reputation.

Please be aware: The real PTA never comments on, endorses or supports individual candidates for office. PTA is a non-partisan association with a long track record of speaking up for all children and connecting families, schools and communities.

If you or other PTA members receive information or obtain written fliers and other materials causing confusion between California State PTA and the Parent Teacher Alliance, please contact California State PTA Executive Director Sherry Skelly Griffith at or (916) 440-1985.

For more information, see this previous alert. For more about California State PTA’s mission to positively impact the lives of all children and families, visit

That’s the theme for the 2016-17 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

Dear Reflections Chairs,

This is it, the week of submission!

Hopefully everyone’s entries are winding their way into your possession and all is going well with signatures and matting, copying, etc.

PTA staff is in the office downtown (1000 Venice Blvd) from 8:30am-3:30pm; I’ll try to be around until noon on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to check in all the entries.

Please see the Facebook page,, for information about a cover sheet for your school that we’ll need listing all kids’ entries by name, entry-type, age-category and entry-title. Thanks.

Please try to plan to stay a while downtown if possible for coffee and to meet other schools’ Reflections committee members and to help check in entries from other schools.

Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions, issues, etc. The Facebook page has a lot of information too.

Looking forward to seeing you and all the artwork!

Sara Roos,
Reflections Chair

The Music Center

Hey, LA Tenth District PTSA: Your schools could be eligible for a grant toward an arts assembly from The Music Center!

Music Center On Tour brings the immediacy of live performance to schools across Los Angeles County. These performances reflect and celebrate the finest artistic contributions of the world’s cultures – from the colorful regional dances of Mexico to the pulsating rhythms of Brazil; from the exquisite music of the Middle East to the golden harmonies of 20th Century America.


Assemblies include written teacher preparation materials that contain background information on the artist and the specific performance as well as activities for the classroom and connections to multiple curricular areas.Music Center on Tour Brochure
Funding of up to $750 is available for Los Angeles County public schools. The two criteria to be eligible are:
  • Your school must have at least 40 percent Free/Reduced Lunch Price Program eligible students.
  • Your school has not had a Music Center on Tour performance within the last five years. Schools that haven’t previously hosted a performance from The Music Center also are eligible.

Interested PTA leaders are encouraged to contact The Music Center to determine eligibility. The funding is limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis so a prompt reply is crucial. For more information, contact (213) 972-4310 or

A $50 administrative fee will be assessed for performances under the $750 amount. This opportunity is only available to public schools in the First, Tenth, Thirty-First, Thirty-Third and Thirty-Fourth PTA districts. The funds must be used in the 2016-17 school year. Funding is made possible by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.

Go to Music Center on Tour for additional information.
