What does the PTA Do?
The Parent Teacher Association, founded in 1897, believes that the education of children is a shared responsibility of the home and the school. PTA works to benefit children and to support parents.

And the Marengo PTA?
Here are the major events/programs at Marengo that parents organize and are paid for by the PTA.

We hope you'll join our PTA team!
At Marengo, your $6 membership dues ensure your right to vote at Marengo PTA meetings, defray the costs of the materials you receive, and support your child's education. When you join Marengo PTA, you also become a member of District 1 PTA, your CA State PTA, and the National PTA - all working together to ensure that every child has an opportunity to learn and to be successful in school and in life.

2007-2008 Meetings and Speakers
Please consider coming to a meeting this year. Every meeting features an update from our principal, Mrs. Betsy Hamilton. It is also a great opportunity to hear what’s happening at the school.

Sometimes we have speakers. Childcare is always available at our Night Meetings (children 4 years and over) and our morning meetings have a place in the back where children can quietly play.

Not to mention the delicious snacks and coffee that we provide. Hope to see you there!
