A special message from CA State PTA

Everyone is part of the PTA family. PTA believes family is the basic unit of society responsible for the support and nurturing of all children, and we recognize that “the family” is defined in many ways. So no matter who’s in your family or how you define it, your family is part of the diverse national family millions of members strong! – PTA

WHAT IS THE Fremont PTA?

"Okay, I’ll confess that I had a certain, not-so-great, impression of PTAs when we first started elementary school—BUT I have since learned that at Fremont PTA, we do it right!  Fremont’s PTA is made up of dads, grandparents, moms, teachers, alumni, and community members who are stay-at-home-parents, physicians, artists, small business owners, educators, corporate leaders, social workers, and many more…all who value the education and development of our kids!"

Fremont PTA President

How does the Fremont PTA do it?

We wish there was an easier way, but the truth is none of this is possible without YOUR help!  There is the financial side, donating to our Jog-a-Thon fundraiser in the Fall and S.O.S. Support our STEAM in the Spring, but there is also a massive need for you in other ways—like in the classroom working with students and teachers, after hours cutting and pasting student projects, or joining a PTA committee and helping coordinate one of our many events, programs and activities. Fremont PTA also participates in many community service projects throughout the school year. No matter how much or how little extra time you have, there is a spot calling your name!

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

Why Your School Needs A PTA?

There are many parent groups, but there is only one PTA – Parent Teacher Association. Connecting families, schools, and communities for almost 120 years, PTA is the largest children’s advocacy association in the country and the defining organization for family engagement. PTA addresses topics that are important to parents and public-school administrators. We fight for full education funding, quality teachers, and programs and policies in the best interest of all children.

  1. 1. Support –
    Each local PTA is autonomous but supported by a robust regional, state, and national structure that provides resources, training, and guidance.
  2. 2. Established Financial Safeguards –
    PTA officers, events, and finances are protected through low-cost group insurance. Leaders are trained in time-proven financial safeguards and best practices. PTAs also have access to tax-filing support to ensure all state and federal nonprofit reporting requirements are met.
  3. 3. Informed School Communities –
    Involved parents understand the challenges schools face and become part of the solution. By developing a closer relationship with parents, student achievement improves, and the school develops a positive reputation in your community.
    4. Measurable Student Results –
    Research over the past three decades school shows that kids do better when families are involved. Grades are better, graduation rates increase, test scores improve, attendance increases and more students are college and career-ready. PTAs focus on what’s best for children and connect to other groups to focus on student success.
    5. Proven Programs 
    Local PTAs have access to ready-made, easy-to-use programs with proven results. From health and safety topics to collaborating with teachers and community members, to fundraising, the programs get results. As members of PTA, leaders have opportunities to network and collaborate with each other to share ideas locally, regionally, and throughout the state and nation.
  4. 6. Volunteer Power –
    PTA organizes, trains, and provides resources for hard-working, dedicated volunteers. Parents are ready to work as partners for student success.
