The Parent Teacher Association is a national, independent non-profit. The mission of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. The Eugene Field Elementary PTA is a unit of the national PTA, California State PTA, First District PTA, and a member of the PTA Council of the Pasadena Unified School District.
The purpose of the PTA at Field Elementary is to enhance and improve the school community to the benefit of all students and potential students. As such, we collaborate on and sponsor events that foster community building, supplement educational opportunities, and promote cultural celebration. We also fund campus improvement, field trips, and classroom resources for all teachers.
Who We Are
The Eugene Field Elementary PTA is made up of parents, family members, teachers, staff and community members working together to enhance our children’s education and well-being. It is a child advocacy group, a fundraising group, an event planning group, and most of all, an active, fun organization which enriches each child’s and each parent’s experience at Field. The PTA supports and provides numerous activities and events that enrich the social and educational experiences of our children. Parent and faculty volunteers plan, coordinate, and implement a variety of experiences for students and families throughout the school year.
Our volunteers make a difference everyday in the lives of the children. We are program leaders, event coordinators, reading buddies, art literacy participants, classroom helpers, computer specialists, field day coordinators, student activity helpers, field trip drivers and Scholastic Book Fair managers. Most of all we are parents, grandparents, and interested community members who want to make a difference, whether it is just for an hour or for several days.
The PTA schedules school events throughout the year that you won’t want to miss, such as Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, Fall Festival, Read-A-Thon, Lunar New Year Celebrations, Family Science Night, and Jog-A-Thon. These events and many more are listed in the school calendar. Also, look for regular PTA event notices in our school email newsletter.
PTA meets regularly throughout the year to discuss issues, projects and vote on budget expenditures and board members so please join us! While all parents and teachers are welcome to attend our association meetings, official voting privileges and elected positions are limited to active members. To be able to vote on important budget items and fundraising, you must be a PTA member.
