About PTA

What is the PTA?

For more than 100 years, National Parent Teacher Association (National PTA®) has worked toward bettering the lives of every child in education, health and safety. Founded in 1897 as the National Congress of Mothers by Alice McLellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst, National PTA is a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.

Today’s PTA is a network of millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of family engagement in schools.

At Stocklmeir Elementary School, we are proud to be a California Distinguished School, where our children receive an excellent education. We have excellent leadership, well-trained caring educators, involved parents and children that are eager to learn and grow. The Stocklmeir PTA is run by many volunteers that juggle family and work in an effort to benefit our children's school. We focus on enhancing the community at Stocklmeir Elementary for our students and teachers and helping maintain an inclusive and supportive school community. We do that through various programs, including music and art lessons, grants to support teachers in the classrooms, salaries for upper grade teacher aides and the librarian, technology support, educational assemblies, and community events.

The work of the PTA helps create a solid foundation from which the children of Stocklmeir Elementary can thrive.
