FEBRUARY 17 IS PTA DAY IN CALIFORNIA – CELEBRATING 120 YEARS OF ADVOCACY.

PTA is part of the fabric of the United States’ public-education system and a trusted partner to millions of parents, families, educators and community members, as it advocates for education, welfare, health and safety of all children. PTA has been instrumental in establishing programs and services to improve children’s lives.

“Parent and family engagement is key to student success, and that’s what PTA has being doing for more than a century. PTA Day in California is not only a time to reflect on PTA’s many past accomplishments, but also a time to call on all Californians to continue PTA’s advocacy on children’s issues such as family-engagement programs, increased per-pupil funding and a full curriculum for every child.”– California State PTA President Justine Fischer
