The Jose Antonio Vargas Elementary School PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a non-profit membership and advocacy organization made up of everyone that wants to improve the education and welfare of children, support school staff, and build the Jose Antonio Vargas Community.

We invite you to join our community and add your strength to ours through membership to the PTA. Although it's called the Parent Teacher Association, anyone can join, even if you don't have kids. All you need is the belief in providing advocacy and education for all kids. Consider adding a donation to help us fund enrichment programs, activities, and field trips for every student. Every dollar helps, and you might be able to double the power of your donation by checking with your company's Human Resources regarding corporate matching.

Sponsorships are available for those with financial need (contact Beatriz Claas or Principal Taylor).
