Hello! Welcome to the Grover Heights PTA webpage!!
PTA stands for Parent-Teacher Association. The PTA helps the school by organizing fundraisers and events for students, staff and families. Supporting Grover Heights is our goal and mission (and having fun doing it ;-)). The PTA also supports teachers by reimbursing for instructional supplies and Grover Heights by helping to purchase equipment for the school. Parents, family members and students are encouraged to be members of the PTA to increase support and friendship within the Grover Heights School community.
School events are bigger and better when we have volunteers and helpers. Do you have a talent that could help us at an event? Perhaps you are artistic and can help make a sign for our Christmas Parade Float! Do you have a business that could help with an event and be promoted at the same time? Let us know and we will be thrilled to work with you! Volunteers working around students do need to be fingerprinted through the Lucia Mar School District but our PTA is happy to reimburse you for that fee.
We welcome all of Grover Heights to our monthly meetings and PTA members can vote to help make decisions on school events and budgeting. Membership to the PTA is $10.00 per person per school year if paid by cash or check in the school office. Online membership has a $1 fee and costs $11.00 per school year through Totem PTA Membership.

***Update: Our first meeting of the 22-23 school year will likely be Tuesday, September 6th, at 5:30pm. Our monthly meetings are typically on the first Tuesday of the month. More detailed information will follow as we return to school in the Fall.
Our first event will be at Grover Heights park for incoming Kindergarten families and students on Tuesday, August 9th, from 4-5pm. The kids can play and get to know each other and the parents can meet other families and chat. We are looking forward to seeing you in August!
