Tutoring Resources for Students
Children who struggle in school benefit from tutoring, which helps them gain confidence and skills if they've fallen behind. Even if your children are excelling in school, tutoring can still be of great benefit, boosting their confidence and preparing them for the next level.
Tutoring services may be available through the school, but parents are encouraged to take on an active role by home tutoring their children and helping their children make the most of their learning experience.
Bullying, are your children at risk?
No single factor puts a child at risk of being bullied or bulling
others. Bullying can happen anywhere - cities, suburbs, or rural towns.
Depending on the environment, some groups - such as lesbian, gay,
bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) youth, youth with disabilities, and
socially isolated youth - may be at an increased risk of being bullied.

Each PTA sets its own dues, typically between $4.00 and $10.00 per member. The amount of the dues is found in the PTA's bylaws. Dues are not tax-deductible.2. Organize a New PTA unit
Please send an email to the California State PTA office requesting information on organizing a new PTA unit.
