Each of our PTAs publishes a periodic eNewsletter for the parents of their students, as well as for their teachers and staff.
- The PTA eNews is predominantly information about School- and/or PTA-hosted community-building and social activities for their school community.
- There is also a portion of the eNews written by the PTA Council for activities available to all PAUSD schools.
Persons from our community may submit a request to include an article in the PTA Council portion of the eNews. In an effort to keep our eNews manageable for our readers and our volunteer editors, we limit what we publish.
