About the PTA
The mission of the Las Lomitas PTA is to foster academic excellence and the social well being of all of the students in conjunction and cooperation with the school administration and staff. The PTA strives to build community to enrich school climate and cultivate strong home-school relations. We design and run numerous programs throughout the year with the support of many parent and staff volunteers. The result is a strong community of concerned and involved families and school professionals.
We are a part of the California State PTA whose mission is to have a positive impact on the lives of all children and families by representing their members and supporting them with skills in advocacy, leadership, and communication.
The Las Lomitas PTA Executive Board meets monthly, usually the first Wednesday of the month. Our general membership meets at least two times per year.
