PTA

WHO IS THE PTA?
We are you: The parents, families and teachers of our Cali students. We encourage parents to be actively involved in their children’s education and strive to help them feel welcome on our campus and informed about what is happening at school. PTA members come together to set goals, approve programs and organize fundraising activities. Members decide how Cali PTA will benefit the students by voting at PTA meetings— a majority wins! We always need more input and there are many opportunities to volunteer at Cali through the PTA. All volunteering and attendance at meetings count toward the 12 hour family volunteer requirement.

WHAT DOES PTA DO?
Our Parent/Teacher Association is actively involved in supporting the students and classrooms at CCLA.

Join Cali PTA!

MOVE-A-THON?
Save-the-date: Saturday, September 23, 2017, 2PM - 5PM
The Move-a-thon is the PTA’s major school-wide fundraiser that earns thousands of dollars for our school while promoting healthy lifestyle habits for families. Students raise money by collecting financial pledges, then come to the Move-a-thon with their families and participate in fun fitness activities. All Cali families are encouraged to make a donation to support programs that will benefit our students. No donation is too small! This year’s theme is "Celebrating 10 Years of Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds".

Move-a-thon Sponsors Needed
We encourage Cali families with a business to become a sponsor (there are several different levels). This is a great opportunity for any size business to reach out to the 650+ students and their families who attend this event. If you are interested in being a sponsor, or have connections with a business that may want to sponsor, please email: moveathon@calipta.org.
