Welcome to the Mata Montessori PTA website. Our purpose is to serve the members with a place where they can search for information pertaining to school events, volunteer opportunities and general school information.
If you are not a member, annual dues are $10, and any parents, students, teachers, staff or community members can join at any general PTA meeting or via this website (joining online requires an extra $1.50 fee). You can also pick up a form in the front office (or download this form) and drop off your form plus cash/check in the office PTA box.
