The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) works to promote children’s well being, to encourage cooperation between the home and school, and to provide opportunities for communication among parents, school and students. Our PTA organizes volunteers for activities in and outside the classroom, sponsors community-building events and raises funds to support the activities that enrich our children’s education.
All parents, guardians, and family members can become an active member of the PTA and its committees. Membership is $5 per person, though no one is turned away for lack of funds.
The Emerson Elementary Oakland Parent Teacher Association (EEOPTA) was formed in May 2018, after having been a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for many years. The formal PTA designation comes with support from a national organization that is over 100 years old.
Whether you’re new to Emerson or have been here awhile, the PTA is here to listen and support you. Have a question or need some info? We want to help. Have a great idea? Tell us! Concerns? Please let us know. Want to get involved? We need you!
