President's Message

July 2016

By Susan Bundy, Saddleback Valley

Council PTA President

 

 Welcome to the Saddleback Valley PTA website!

     Our Council is made up of 25 schools in the Saddleback Valley Unified School District. We are a high achieving district with schools in Laguna Hills, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita and Trabuco Canyon.  Our mission is to support and speak on behalf of all children and youth to positively impact their lives.

     Our theme for the coming year is “Keep Our Eyes On the Prize, It's About the Kids”. We believe that when parents, teachers, and concerned citizens work together, we can accomplish amazing things for the children of our community.  Our Council executive board will work hard to train and support all our unit board members as well as local school leaders. We will also reach out to the community and work together to bring awareness to programs that enrich our children’s lives.  We will advocate for proper funding with our legislators, bring attention to areas of concern to the community such as special education and the importance of art in education, and provide service to our larger community. We will continue to educate and inform our communities on LCFF and Common Core two new and very important things happening in our schools

     We would love for you join us on this journey. I encourage you to take the first step and join your local PTA!

Looking forward to a GREAT 2016-2017…
