Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA)

Dear El Camino Families,

Welcome! We hope all had a healthy and restful summer.The PTSA is excited and ready to work with you. PTSA stands for Parent Teacher Student Association. PTSA is a volunteer association where parents, educators, students, and other citizens can be active in their school and community.

This year the PTSA will focus on parent education and advocating for our El Camino families. We will hold monthly PTSA meetings over Zoom where we will hear from the principal and the student leaders from ASB. Everyone is welcome to join. It is the best way for parents to learn about what is happening at school. 

The El Camino PTSA does not fundraise all year like other PTA’s.  Our only source of revenue is through membership. Membership is especially important!  Please join as a show of support even if you do not have time to participate or volunteer. Joining the PTSA is easy, students and parents can all join through Totem. Here is the link https://jointotem.com/ca/south-san-francisco/el-camino-high-school-ptsa/join 

Membership fees ($15 per person) and any additional PTA donation are fully tax deductible. See “Payments” in Totem for your donation receipt for tax purposes.  All money raised by the PTSA goes back to the school.

We are having a PTSA membership contest! At the September PTSA meeting we will conduct a random drawing for 4 lucky members to win a $25 Starbucks gift card. For student memberships: the class with the most student members will get $200 added to their graduation class account. 

Our first meeting is scheduled for September 27 at 7:00pm. A zoom link will be emailed through Infinite Campus.

We look forward to a great year!

Best Wishes,

El Camino PTSA
