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.

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 sgriffith@capta.org 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 www.capta.org.
