 Our Mission
 
The mission of the Santa Clara Valley PTA is to provide resources to support, sustain, and strengthen PTAs within Sixth District PTA.
 
 
 
 
 Message from the President
 
Santa Clara Valley PTA is unlike any other PTA you’ve ever been a member of – we have no school, no principal, and no students! We exist to support other PTAs. You can do as little or as many PTA activities as you’d like – from joining, to donating, to serving on a committee, or holding an elected office – the whole range! Read our letter to learn more about us and sign up! We’d love to have you in SCV PTA!

 Advocacy News
 
For many years, in California and across the US, women, children, and Two-Spirit Individuals of Indigenous heritage have been disproportionately at risk for going missing -- being abducted, often being abused, and sometimes being enslaved or murdered.

This school year, our advocacy team developed and submitted a Convention Resolution to encourage PTAs throughout California to learn about this crisis and to help protect children and families who are at risk of becoming victims. On May 3, our resolution was adopted by a unanimous vote of the delegates to State PTA's Annual Convention.

Read our Convention Resolution [here].

 "The Smithsonian at Your Fingertips"
 
At our Association Meeting in September, 2023, we had a fascinating presentation about the Smithsonian Institution's Learning Lab, and how we as parents and as PTAs can explore it and take advantage of the resources it offers. For those who wanted to see that presentation again, or who were unable to attend the meeting, we are providing a recording [here].

The Smithsonian Learning Lab is an award-winning interactive platform that provides digital tools and resources to help educators access Smithsonian resources, customize learning experiences, and create meaningful connections to our museum artifacts from anywhere in the world. It offers free digital access to millions of Smithsonian artworks, artifacts, specimens, recordings, learning activities, and teaching materials for the PK-12 classroom from across the Smithsonian's 21 museums, education and research centers, and the National Zoo.

Learn how you, too, can incorporate the Smithsonian Institution's digital educational materials in and out of the classroom to benefit your child, yourself, and your community!
