What is the PTA?

Monta Loma’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a non-profit organization made up of members of the community who work in partnership with the staff and students of Monta Loma Elementary School to create a safe, fun, and enriching place of learning.  We are parents, grandparents, guardians, teachers, staff members, neighbors, and others in the surrounding community committed to increasing the success of our school in a variety of ways including building community, raising money, and volunteering.

We plan, coordinate and execute a variety of enrichment and social events that directly impact the lives of the Monta Loma community.  We are separate from MVEF, which raises money for the Mountain View Whisman School District (MVWSD).

Monta Loma PTA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is part of the Sixth District PTA (Santa Clara County), of the California State PTA, affiliated with the National PTA.  We are also served by the Los Altos Mountain View PTA Council.
