Mariano Castro Elementary School PTA

About the PTA

The Castro Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a non-profit organization funded entirely by the community and that helps support many activities and programs at Castro School. These include the gardens, the school library and much more.

The PTA also advocates for kids at the government level, so our kids enjoy things like hot lunches, and hearing and vision testing at school.

We raise the funds needed to support these activities in many ways including the fall membership drive, the Walkathon, Festival of Lights, Book Fairs, and rewards programs such as Box Tops for Education, and more.

Please consider joining and donating to the Castro PTA! This is the best way you can help make Castro a fantastic learning environment for your child! By getting involved, you can become more connected to your child’s school community.
