Membership is open to any adult in our school community. Fees are currently $10 per person. Each membership includes a copy of our school directory that is completed early in the school year.

As a member of the PTA, you are supporting the wonderful programs, activities and events that enrich our community. You may exercise your voting privileges at our PTA general meetings that are held throughout the school year. During these meetings we discuss and vote on the direction and future of our PTA and its programs. Beyond our own school, when you join the PTA, you become a part of a group of over one million PTA members in California.

Executive Board Meetings

PTA executive board meetings are typically held once each month starting at 8:30 a.m. The meetings are open for interested parties to attend, but voting is limited to executive board members.

General PTA Meetings

General (association) PTA meetings are held at various times throughout the school year. The whole school community is invited to attend, but voting is limited to PTA members. During these meetings, the recording secretary takes minutes and after the minutes are approved at the next general meeting, they will be placed in a binder in the El Carmelo Office.
