PTA

The White Oaks PTA’s goal is to create a thoroughly enriched experience for the White Oaks School community by hosting activities and events for the students, families and staff throughout the year. We hope you will help us achieve this goal by joining the White Oaks PTA today!

Our organization is run 100% by volunteers. We are so thankful for the parents and community members who help us conduct these programs. There are many opportunities to help and we work hard to make the jobs manageable and fun.

The PTA is funded through membership and other fundraising activities. The funds allow the PTA to plan, financially support, and organize the following programs and events that benefit the entire White Oaks community:

  • Art in Action
  • Makerspace
  • Student assemblies
  • Scholastic Book Fair
  • Library books and classroom materials
  • Teacher mini-grants and grade level grants
  • Green Team
  • Special events throughout the year such as movie nights, bowling party, Stanford Baseball outing, Cultural Arts Day, Holiday Store, school dance, Teacher Appreciation Week and much, much more!

How is PTA fundraising different from SCEF fundraising?

White Oaks PTA fundraising focuses on providing funds for programs which build community and enhance the educational experience at White Oaks School. The PTA funds initiatives like: art and science programs, Makerspace, school assemblies, teacher and class mini grants, family fun nights and so much more.

SCEF fundraising focuses on ensuring that our schools are strong district-wide and able to offer a high level of educational excellence to all.

White Oaks School and our students benefit greatly from both PTA and SCEF fundraising efforts and support. Please consider making donations to SCEF and the White Oaks PTA today.
