Castaic Elementary PTA

Be a ray of sunshine for CES!

*Join our PTA*

Our Membership Drive begins August 13 and ends September 27, 2019.  You can sign up for membership by returning the completed flyer with a check or cash to the front office or by sending it to school with your child.  Online payment is available by clicking the link below.  All proceeds go directly to PTA and our students.  The class with the highest number of participants will receive a pizza party. (view flyer)

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, 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, Moms & Muffins, Dads & Donuts, PE Program, Music Program, Library Books, Playground Toys, and Staff Appreciation Week.  

Programs that we provide include the Family Dance, Movie Night, Scholastic Book Fair, Yearbook, Spirit Wear, Green Club, 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 held in the MPR and 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. Younger children are welcomed too.  If you miss a meeting, we can catch you up!  We have the latest information available.  More info to follow.  (view 8-20-19 agenda)

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.  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!
