About the PTA

What is PTA?

Santiago STEAM Magnet Elementary PTA is a unit of the National PTA (Parent Teacher Association).  We work closely with other units in the Saddleback Valley PTA, a part of the California PTA and Fourth District PTA.

PTA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

National PTA® comprises millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of parent involvement in schools.

PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit association that prides itself on being a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education. Membership in PTA is open to anyone who wants to be involved and make a difference for the education, health, and welfare of children and youth.
