A Message From Our PTA President

Dear Dahlia Community,

Welcome to the Dahlia Heights PTA! 

The Dahlia Heights PTA is a gathering place for all to support our school and to help our children grow into strong, compassionate and capable adults. 

What makes PTA different from other school organizations is that your membership makes you part of a large state and national organization with a united, powerful voice for kids. Dominating PTA’s work at the present is securing a balanced, adequate, and sustainable source of funding for education.

We also have a good deal of fun.

Please join us at our monthly meetings (second Tuesday of the month) and upcoming events.  Some events are held for the purpose of building community and the aforementioned fun, while others are to raise money for education, enrichment activities, and physical improvements that make Dahlia a great place to go to school.

Your Dahlia To-Do List:

Become a PTA member today and stay engaged!

Best Wishes,

Laura Horn, PTA President 

Why become a PTA member?

  • Benefits your child and the school. Research has proven that kids do better in school when parents are involved.  Grades are higher, test scores improve, and attendance increases.
  • Connects you to a network. The PTA and its functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, build rapport, and discuss ideas.
  • Means more informed parents. Parents involved in the PTA understand the challenges the school faces and become part of the solution.  They support improving education – both locally and legislatively – and as a result, schools develop a positive reputation in the community.
  • Boosts children’s well-being. PTAs focus on what students need in order to be successful in school, including the benefits of good nutrition and health, physical fitness, and school safety.
  • Gets you connected and gives you a voice. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school than by being part of the PTA.  Because the PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions, and in this way, more effectively create change at your school.
  • Improves your skills. By volunteering with the PTA, you gain valuable experiences.  It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a great cause!
  • Results in school improvement. PTAs play an important role in fundraising, which provides building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events – all vital elements to a school’s success.
  • Makes you a good role model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child(ren) the importance you place on education.

Mission of the PTA

The mission of the California State PTA is to positively impact the lives of all children and families by representing our members and empowering and supporting them with skills in advocacy, leadership, and communication. 

Core Values of the PTA

The California State PTA is a professional, non-profit volunteer organization committed to the well-being of all children.

We believe every adult has a responsibility to ensure that all children develop to their full potential.

We believe parents are children’s first teachers and that parent involvement is essential throughout a child's educational experience.

We believe that family is the basic unit of society responsible for the support and nurturing of all children, and we recognize that "the family" may be defined in many ways.

We believe our responsibility includes advocating for the safety and welfare of all children and the opportunity for a quality public education for each child.

A United Voice for Children

Not all decisions affecting a child’s school happen at the local level, and the Mission of PTA is to address the educational and social needs of all children. For more than a century, PTA has been a driving force in national education policies and programs. Today, PTA continues to champion the importance of family involvement, safe and nurturing environments, and proper funding, curriculum, and leadership in our public schools.
