PTA Sponsored Events

What is “PTA”?

Joaquin Miller Elementary’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) connects Miller’s families, teachers, staff, and community in the common goal to help our students get the most out of their time at their school. From “PTA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.” At Miller, our PTA strives to provide educational opportunities through field trips and school programs, connect parents with teachers and staff to learn what is happening at Miller, as well as provide family experiences to encourage and strengthen the community at our elementary school.

We encourage all families to join the PTA and learn more about what is happening at Miller, to share your concerns, and to help make Miller Elementary the best school for our children. Our success depends 100% on the time, effort, and input of the amazing parent volunteers and staff, towards programs that benefit every child at Miller.
