Make a difference with PTA
(Parent Teachers Association)
The PTA is looking for a few good people, just like you.
The PTA strives to support the students, parents and education at Monterey Heights Elementary School by promoting a sense of community through fundraisers, events and give-back programs. All of these activities add in a positive way to the Eagle experience for all of us. The PTA plans, organizes, staffs and operate dozens of activities each year. It takes the continued commitment of a lot of people to make all of the activities a reality. Please consider volunteering to help with one or two of the activities listed below. By volunteering you will be helping the PTA, the school, your child and yourself.
None of the activities listed below gets done without PTA volunteers like you. Each activity requires a team effort for success.
