​About Us

What is the PTA?

At Spreckels, the PTA is a group of parents and caregivers who work together to support the students and teachers at Spreckels.  By sharing our ideas, volunteering, or just joining the fun at our family-friendly events, we’re building a vibrant, diverse community of support for our school.  

 

Why Join Us?

Joining the PTA is a great way to support your school.

  • Show your kids that you care about their education and that you are investing in their success.

  • Partner with the principal, teachers and staff to make the campus a great place to learn
