Message from the President
Welcome to the Santa Barbara Area Council of PTAs. We serve 26 schools in the Santa Barbara/Goleta area. We are here to support your school PTA in any way we can. In addition, we feature the following events annually:
- Fall Council training – held late August of each year. Get your PTA going strong at the beginning of the year! Open to all PTA boards and chairs District-wide (Santa Barbara County)
- Association Meetings: A great opportunity for PTA board members from all schools to network, learn more about PTA and resources in the community, and vote on important PTA-related motions.
- Reflections: Each year we participate in the themed National PTA Reflections visual art/performing arts competition. You can find details at www.capta.org. Consult your school to see if they are participating and find out when the deadline is. Our Council holds a reception at the end of January each year to honor students who make it to the Council (citywide) level.
- Honorary Service Awards Reception: At the end of May each year, held at the County Schools Auditorium. If your school participates in the PTA Honorary Service Awards program, we would like to honor your honorees as well with a dinner and ceremony of recognition. Please let us know if you are participating
