About Saratoga PTA


Dear Saratoga Sea Turtle Families,

On behalf of the Saratoga Elementary School PTA, I welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. I’d like to share a little bit about the PTA and our mission. The mission of the SES PTA is to positively impact the lives of all children, teachers, staff and families. This remains the same, even when students are distance learning or back in the classroom. The dawn of this year has presented us with unique opportunities to continue this mission. Our PTA will seize every opportunity to continue to enrich the Saratoga Elementary School community this year.

Classroom Funding - PTA supports classroom materials, supplies and teacher grants through PTA’s Just Do It membership drive. Based on class size, each teacher typically receives between $1400-$1700.

Project Cornerstone - Social Emotional Learning brought to students virtually through trained parent volunteers.

Book Fair - to inspire a love of reading and put dollars back into our library program.

Virtual Running Club - log miles at home to stay fit, see your classmates are doing it too!

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Lunch - funded by PTA 3-4 times a year.

Enrichment Programs & Assemblies - from Author’s Day visits to Art, Science and Yoga.The opportunities are endless. We can’t wait to showcase these this year!

Virtual Pumpkin Decorating Contest - a SES favorite, brought to you virtually this year.

Science Fair /Makers Fair - learning through curiosity, creativity and invention.

Talent Show - showcasing the talent of the amazing students!

These are just some of the programs and events that are funded through the PTA’s Just Do It membership drive. I’d like to invite each family to become a PTA member! With YOUR support we will achieve the greatest results!
