PTA sponsors academic enrichment programs, and events throughout the year to offer Marengo school students opportunities to expand their knowledge and experience academically and to have fun as well. The Art Docent, Cultural Arts and Reflections programs offer classroom art and music enrichment throughout the school year. The Holiday Workshop offers students an opportunity to make gifts for family and friends, the Science Fair and Super Science Day are held in January; a Talent/Variety Show is in March, and an All City Track Meet is held in the spring. The Grocery Mart Scrip program fully-funds the school computer lab.

In order to support these and other programs, PTA sponsors several fundraisers over the year. Wish Night is held at Back to School Night and funds are used directly in your child’s classroom; a Book Fair is held in November and is a great opportunity to support the school and get some of your holiday shopping done at the same time; and the Fun Fair is held in May with all South Pasadena elementary schools participating. Marengo Tango is a party and silent auction for parents that will be held this year.
