• What is PTA?
    PTA is a national organization of volunteers whose primary concern is the well being of children and youth. Stated objectives of the organization are:
    • To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, community and place of worship.
    • To raise the standards of home life.
    • To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth.
    • To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth.
    • To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental, social and spiritual education.
    The La Mesa-Spring Valley School District has chosen to affiliate with the national organization, Parent Teacher Association (PTA). All schools in the district have PTA units. Our unit belongs to the Mt. Helix Council, made up of the 18 elementary and four middle school PTAs within the district. As a local PTA unit, the Lemon Avenue PTA fits into the national picture through an organizational network. Mt. Helix Council is part of the Ninth District, made up of all of the councils of San Diego and Imperial Counties. Our district is one of 30 statewide that compose the California State PTA. The California State PTA, headquartered in Sacramento, is composed of more than 3000 units.
