PTA

The mission of the California State PTA is to positively impact the lives of all children and families by representing our members and empowering and supporting them with skills in advocacy, leadership, and communication.

The Carson PTA is made up of parents, teachers, and staff that work cooperatively to provide for the educational needs and support of Carson students.

Carson Elementary has outstanding parent participation that greatly enriches our children’s education. Our PTA supports and coordinates a variety of programs and activities including:

  • Recess 101
  • Music for Minors, a music program for all grade levels
  • Science Lab
  • Year Books
  • Family Nights
  • Computer Lab
  • Parent Education
  • Students Workbooks for Reading and Math
  • Field Trips and Field Trip Transportation
  • Health Exams


Help Our Children Reach Their Goal!

We are aiming for 100% participation from all school families. This is a great way to show your support and we need you! Joining the PTA is a great way to stay connected and be involved with your child’s experiences here at Carson. We have started a ROAR for Carson contest. Classes that achieve the goal of 100% participation will receive a fun class party!

Volunteer at Carson!
