mwpta-logoMt. Washington Elementary PTA is the premiere parent-teacher organization for Mt. Washington Elementary School, a California Distinguished School. As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) reminds our country of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child while providing the best tools for parents to help their children be successful students.

PTA does not act alone. Working in cooperation with many national education, health, safety, and child advocacy groups and federal agencies, the national PTA organization collaborates on projects that benefit children and that bring valuable resources to its members.

As a PTA member, you are a part of one of the oldest and largest associations dedicated to the EDUCATION and WELL-BEING of all children and youth. For over 100 years, PTA members at the local level have provided volunteer, advocacy and financial support to enhance the academic, social and physical environments of our schools.  In partnership with over 7 million other volunteers across America, PTA members represent a strong and respected voice in promoting programs that enrich the quality of life for our children, our families and our community.
