Information on Ohlone PTA
The Ohlone Parent Teacher Association ("PTA") is a group of volunteers working together to help make the Ohlone community as rich and fulfilling as possible, inside and outside the classroom. These dedicated parents organize, host, fund, and implement many programs that augment the Ohlone classroom experience and truly "bring home and school together".
Ohlone PTA projects include communications programs like the Back to School packets, Ohlone Arrow, the school signboard, eNews, a facebook group, and this website; enrichment programs like the after-school World Language Program, Family Science Night, Family Math Night, Family Orchestra Night, Literacy Night, and onsite theatrical performances; community-building events like Ice Skating Night, Pancake Breakfast, Parent Coffees, and the Spring Fling picnic; and supplemental funding for classroom needs via checks to every teacher at the beginning of the school year and school-wide needs via grants to the principal.
In addition, as part of the largest parent advocacy group in the country, the Ohlone PTA supports and is supported by local, state, and national PTA organizations. Part of the PTA mission is to influence and support education policies and legislative efforts that affect the well-being of children.
We hope that every Ohlone parent and staff member will become a PTA member and participate in this organization that serves our school and improves the lives of our children. Meetings are held several times each school year. We look forward to seeing you there!

Our budget must be approved by our PTA membership. All Ohlone PTA members are encouraged to review the proposed 2012-2013 budget prior to the first General Association meeting of the school year (Friday, August 24 at 8:30am in the MP Room). The buget can amended as necessary during the school year as plans and needs change.
Our PTA is governed by bylaws, which must be reviewed and approved by the State PTA periodically and voted on by the Ohlone PTA membership. The most recent revision was approved by the California PTA and by the Ohlone PTA membership in 2012.
