  • PTA is California’s largest Children’s Advocacy Association working to improve the lives of all children and their families.

    PTA members within the Temple City Unified School District are a group of individuals growing together and making a difference. Chances are, if you are reading this, you have renewed your membership in and/or joined the PTA. The support that we, as PTA, provide to the schools with our volunteer members is immeasurable. Thank you for your time, commitment and dedication and thank you for helping to make PTA the greatest parent involvement group in the nation! Joining your local PTA gives you the added benefit of belonging to California State and National PTA which are made up of caring people from diverse backgrounds, who tirelessly advocate for the education, health and welfare of all children. Together we form a network of members providing a powerful voice for all children. Although PTA still faces many challenges ahead in California, we will persevere and achieve great things for our children.  We will continue to sponsor many fun-filled activities for students. We know that the enrichment provided through field trips, assemblies, youth development trips, health education programs and Performing Arts activities is so valuable. Help us spread the word about what PTA does to advocate for all children and enhance their learning environment! Recruit your friends and family who have not yet joined and we will all work together to provide a caring and enriching education experience for all students in our Great School District! 


    Reflections is a National PTA program which demonstrates student creativity in visual arts, music, literature and photography, dance choreography and film/video production.
