Is PTA part of the school district?
No, Fairlands PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization separate from Fairlands Elementary and Pleasanton Unified School District. PTA executive board members and event organizers are volunteer parents of Fairlands students and are not paid employees. We are all volunteers donating our time and efforts to support our children and the school.
Fairlands Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is run by volunteer Fairlands parents. Our goal is to positively impact the lives of all children and families in the Fairlands community by:
supporting educational programs at school, both financially and through volunteer hours (library books, classroom supplies, room parents, class art lessons, and more)
organizing community events (Ice Cream Social, Fall Festival, Holiday Breakfast, Family Fun Bingo Night, and more)
reaching out to our diverse cultural mix to have students, teachers, and family members feel accepted and included
