​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. 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.

  • Voice your concerns and create change that affects your child and your community.

  • Build a caring network of other parents with whom to share struggles and celebrate successes as your kids grow and learn together.

  • Support valuable enrichment and programs that the school could not otherwise afford:

    • classroom supply budgets for teachers

    • arts education

    • access to online reading support programs for students, including Raz Kids and Achieve 3000

    • Running Club

    • and much more!
