As you know, we will be unable to meet in person during the COVID-19 quarantine, and meetings will be conducted through Zoom for the first quarter of the 2020-21 school year. We will keep you informed as soon as we have the details on this year’s calendar, and we encourage everyone to remain flexible as we adjust to the challenges together.

We will send out a Zoom link to our first PTA General Meeting of the year in advance.  For now, mark your calendars to join us on

Tuesday night, September 29. 

There will be a Parent Support Discussion led by School Counselors Tiffany Bryant and Brian Falkey and School Social Worker Jesenia Alonso Arevalo when parents can ask questions, make suggestions, and talk about the start of school and any issues/concerns you may have.  It will be good to get together with other parents as we walk through this first month of long distance learning together.

There will be an English and Spanish meeting, with the budget review and vote in between the two.  Everyone is encouraged to participate, but only PTA members can vote on the budget.  To become a member, click here.  To view the proposed budget in preparation for the meeting, email our Treasurer Tomo Azuma at  If you would like to vote but can’t attend the meeting, we will be providing a survey similar to the one used in last May’s Board election.  Stay tuned!

Your PTA Board members are keeping busy this summer with PTA conferences and workshops!  A big focus for our 2020-21 PTA is keeping families engaged and connected to the school while supporting our teachers and staff to the best of our ability.  Do you have ideas or thoughts on how PTA can support you or the school?  Please feel free to email your PTA President, Sara Murphy, at  We’d love to hear from YOU!
