PTA Membership 

Our school is strengthened by the ongoing support of parents, teachers, and staff dedicated to making the learning environment the best it can be.  An hour, a day, a school year ... any level of commitment you are able to make will strengthen our school.  Our learning community gains so much from every family who volunteers!  The way to start is to join the PTA!  Each membership positively impacts ALL kids at Monte Vista through the many programs our PTA provides. Our goal is 100% participation, or one member for every child. You can join PTA by returning the envelope from your Thursday folder, clicking here: 2023-2024 Campaign & Membership Envelope or on-line at
