Open PTA Positions for 2017-18 School Year

Our Castaic PTA works all year long planning events and services for our school as well as raising funds to pay for field trips, classroom supplies, our PE coordinator, assemblies and more.  But the PTA can't function if there aren't enough parents involved.  We are currently in the process of filling board positions for the 2017-18 school year so if you have thought about getting more involved, we would love to hear from you!

Elected positions can only be held for a maximum of two years and we currently have the following elected positions open:

Treasurer - Oversees all PTA financial transactions and keeps accurate records of all expenses and receipts. Must be able to attend two PTA meetings each month on Tuesdays and have a flexible schedule to handle other job functions as needed during school hours and PTA events.  The Treasurer is one of three positions that are required in our PTA.  Training for this position is available through the SCV PTA.

VP/Membership - responsible for creating and implementing a membership plan, promoting membership throughout the year, collecting dues, and distributing membership cards.


The following non-elected positions are open:
Grant Writer - Seeks out and applies for grants that our PTA would benefit from.‚Äč
Special Needs Coordinator - Liason between the PTA and the SDC team. 

We are also looking for parents who are interested in assisting with:
Spirit Sticks Sales
Holiday Shoppe

If you would like to find out more information about the positions, please send us a message through our Contact Us page and a board member will be in contact with you.

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.


Every time you shop at Ralphs through August 31, 2017, you'll be donating to our PTA!  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 Partners for their support!
