Welcome to Spring Valley PTA
The mission of the Spring Valley PTA is to positively impact the lives of all children and families by representing our members, to provide funds to support 21st century teaching, and to create community and encourage involvement through PTA sponsored social activities.
Hello Spring Valley Families,
On behalf of the Spring Valley PTA Executive Board, welcome to the 2020-21 school year! Although school will be opening this year with distance learning, SVPTA is just as committed to our students, families, teachers, and community as we have been in years past. Our board is working hard to support our families and our school, strengthen our children's education, and ensure each student has the tools they need to have a fantastic year. With your help, we believe we can meet and exceed these goals regardless of the learning platform.
This year, our school needs your help more than ever. Our children and teachers still need school supplies, computers, access to varied learning resources, and--more urgently than ever--the sense of belonging to a caring and committed school community. Many of our families have faced unprecedented hardships. Distance learning will have its unique challenges. And we must take action to ensure our community raises a generation of informed citizens committed to equality and peace. We have a huge opportunity this year to make a difference, and we hope you’ll join us in our mission.
Consider taking these steps--there’s truly an opportunity to fit every family’s situation:
Become a member of the SVPTA. No experience necessary. No required activities. Your membership gives you voting rights that help direct your dollars and our school programs. Join the PTA
Share your ideas. Attend SVPTA’s Assembly Meetings and join the conversation on our goals for this year and how we are meeting them. Share your ideas and experiences for remote learning and events! Meetings are typically held on the second Thursday of September, November, January, March, and May. Calendar
Volunteer. Whether you can share your professional or personal expertise or a hidden talent; whether you can help on a big program, for an hour a week, or for 30 minutes for a specific event, you are definitely needed and appreciated. Look out for our emails and check here to find out more and let us get to know you!
Donate. Every dollar counts. We recognize the financial hardships some of our families have faced, and have adjusted our target goal and budget this year to those items we still need to support the success of our students. Please help us meet this modest goal in a tough year for fundraising: donate if you can, as much as you can, and take advantage of corporate match opportunities! Donate here
All of our Executive Board Members and Committee Chairs are available to answer any questions about SVPTA and provide you with resources for this year. Welcome to the 2020-21 school year and thank you for your support!
