What is the PTSA?
It's an association of parents, teachers, and students working together to help benefit PJHS and also be involved in our children's lives at school.
Joining the PTSA and volunteering your time is a terrific way to be involved in your student's academic life. It's also fun for you to meet and spend time with other parents while enjoying the support you're giving your child.
And remember, it's never too late to join or become involved!
PJHS PTSA is a part of the State and National PTA Association. Visit www.capta.org. to find out what California State PTA is doing for our kids and www.pta.org for our National PTA.
A side benefit of becoming a PTSA member is that you can save money with merchants who are members of the National PTA Member Benefits Provider Program such as Barnes&Noble.com
Every year the PTSA organizes a celebration party for our 8th graders. There will be many opportunities to support this event including planning, decorating, supervising, clean up and hospitality (food and prizes). More information about this event will be announced via Parent Square as the event gets closer.
