Joining Together for Student Success

A PTA/SCEF Campaign to Support our Schools

This Fall, more than ever, our great San Carlos Schools need us. Let’s come together and create the best experience possible for our eager students and outstanding teachers.

Join the TeamKid movement! By giving to your school and SCEF, you’ll be supporting the local-level funding that bridges the gap between the needs of San Carlos Schools, and our CA state funding.

Our goal is 100% participation, so please donate at whatever level is possible for you.

White Oaks PTA

Your contribution per student supports student and school success

Parent-Teacher Associations help fund site specific supply, instructional, and community-building needs, as well as advocate state-wide for students and teachers. Funds raised by our PTA will be used during the 2020–21 school year and will cover school supplies, teacher stipends, principal funds, and other school-wide community, administrative and academic support.

Your PTA membership lends your voice to advocacy efforts on behalf of children and educators at the local, state, and national levels.

  • Classroom & Learning Support: More than half the PTA budget goes to support teachers and classrooms. Through generous teacher stipends and additional funds for school supplies, literacy aids and classroom materials, PTA fundraising has a direct impact on your student’s classroom experience.

  • Community Building & Events: Part of the mission of the PTA is to build community amongst our circle of families.

  • Art & Special Programs: PTA funds also cover Art in Action and other enrichment programs that help enhance our children’s educational experience.

  • Advocacy: The PTA plays a huge role in advocacy efforts both locally and across the state and nation to ensure equitable funding for schools and support laws that improve the lives of all children.
