Portola Elementary PTA


Portola Elementary Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) supports the entire Portola community, providing funding and human-power to support numerous programs and events that enrich our school environment.  Our Portola Elementary PTA includes parents, teachers, staff, and family & friends and is led by an elected Executive Board. Without the support of the PTA, many of our fantastic programs would not exist.  We thank you for your commitment in engaging with the Portola community.  Please browse through our website to better understand the goals and activities of our PTA.
