Join our PTA!

The PTA is the largest volunteer advocacy association working exclusively on behalf of all children in our nation. Here at CES, our goal is to support the staff, parents and students, enhance the learning environment and help make elementary school a fun and memorable experience. Our PTA provides many services and programs for our students that but those can only be funded through your financial support.

We raise funds for our students with Membership, our Fall Fundraiser, Spirit Sticks, Box Tops, Scholastic Book Fair and by donations, including the Ralphs Community Contribution program. 

Funds raised pay for Field Trips, Technology and Classroom Supplies, Assemblies, Friendship Week, Reading is Fun, Moms & Muffins, Dads & Donuts, PE Program, Music Program, Library Books, Playground Toys, and Staff Appreciation Week.  

Programs that we provide include the Family Dance, Outdoor Movie Night, Scholastic Book Fair, Yearbook, Spirit Wear, Green Club, and Community Outreach.

How you can get involved with your child's education:
- Volunteer in your child's classroom
- Attend monthly PTA Association Meetings
- Support CES and PTA Events
- Attend CUSD School Board Meetings

Our monthly meetings are held in the MPR and are great opportunities to hear school updates from Mrs. Beach and find out what the PTA is currently working on. We look forward to hearing your questions and suggestions, as well. Younger children are welcomed too.

Help support our PTA by shopping at Ralphs & Amazon:

Ralphs Community Contributions Program

One of the easiest ways to raise money for Castaic Elementary School is to participate in the Community Contributions program offered by Ralphs Market. If you enroll your Ralphs Rewards Card with the program, at no cost to you, part of each purchase you make at Ralphs using that card will be donated back to our PTA.  It's easy and free money! 


Our PTA earned approximately $8,000 from this program over the past 12 months.  The program restarts every September 1, so we need our families to register again for this great program.  To participate in the program, register your Ralphs Card at www.ralphs.com.  After registering, when you shop at Ralphs, you should see "At your request, Ralphs is donating to Castaic Union PTA" on the bottom of your receipt.


Enrolling in this program will NOT effect your Fuel Points.  Please encourage family and friends to register, too!


Shop through AmazonSmile, select Castaic PTA as your charity and .5% of your order will be donated back to our PTA.

Thank you to our PTA Partner for his support!
