Welcome!

The Jose Antonio Vargas PTA is a valuable asset to the school community. As a brand new school in 2019-2020, the PTA was essential in ensuring all students had access to a quality education.


2020-21 will be a challenging school year, but TOGETHER we can make it through!


It is essential, now more than ever, to join and donate to the Jose Antonio Vargas PTA so that together we can ensure all students, teachers, and parents feel part of the school community!


Joining the PTA is simple! And joining doesn't mean you have to volunteer or donate any money! The fee to join is a one time fee each school year and it provides the PTA with many opportunities to help each and every student on campus. By joining the PTA it also gives you and your child a voice! You decide how involved you want to be! The PTA helps YOU stay informed!

You can now join online. Please follow the link to register.

If you were a member of a PTA last year, you may already have a Totem account. Please use that account to register above.

STAY INFORMED!

All JA Vargas Families should join Konstella. This is the primary communication tool for the PTA! Even if you choose not to join the JA Vargas PTA Community, we strongly encourage ALL FAMILIES to register on the site! You will be able to control what information gets sent to you and what is relevant to your family! It will allow you to CONNECT with other JA Vargas students and families, but most importantly you will know more about what is happening in your child's classroom and on campus (if we are ver allowed back on campus!)
