TREE RING Yearbooks

This year we were able to make a yearbook without being on campus with the help of the CES Staff members and parents sending in photos of the students. It was our first year using Tree Ring, but it was a positive experience and we hope using them for future yearbooks is just as easy.

Tree Ring will plant 208 trees in the name of Castaic Elementary, in partnership for using their services. 
The yearbook was a hard task to accomplish this year, and we did our best from a distance, we hope parents can see that. Thank you!

Enrollment is open for the duration of the school year.  You can join at any time. You can sign up for membership online.  Online payment is available by clicking the link below.  A portion of the proceeds go directly to PTA and our students.  

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, but those can only be funded through your financial support.

We raise funds for our students with Membership, our Fall Fundraiser, 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, Chrome Books, Friendship Week, Moms & Muffins, Dads & Donuts, PE Program, Music Program, Library Books, Playground Toys, and Staff Appreciation Week.  

Programs that we have provided for the school in past years have been the Family Dance, Movie Night, Scholastic Book Fair, Yearbook, and Community Outreach.

How you can get involved with your child's education:
- Join the PTA (pay online)
- 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 currently help online via zoom are great opportunities to hear school updates from Mrs. West and find out what the PTA is currently working on. We look forward to hearing your questions and suggestions, as well.

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.  To participate in the program, register your Ralphs Card at www.ralphs.com (Select Castaic Union PTA UL554) or call 1-800-443-4438.  There is no need to register every year.  You are automatically enrolled each year thereafter, until you remove your school from the list.  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 Partners for their support!
