WHAT IS THE PTA & WHAT DOES IT DO?
WHAT DOES THE PTA DO?
Murwood Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a non-profit, volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers and community members committed to enhancing the educational experience for all children at Murwood Elenemtary School.
There is a gap in State and District funding for essential educational programs and classroom support for teachers. Murwood students benefit from these extra programs that would not be possible without contributions from the Murwood community. Donations to PTA fundraising activities help fund the following programs and events:
- Community Events (i.e. Welcome Back festivities, Fall Carnival, Festival of Lights, Disco Bingo, etc.)
- Classroom equipment and supplies
- Books and periodicals for the library
- Parent education events
- Guest speakers, authors, and artists
- 5th grade camp
WHAT IS EXPECTED OF ME WHEN I JOIN?
Becoming a member of the PTA shows that you want to help support the programs and events that help enhance students' experiences at school. It does not obligate you to attend the PTA meetings or volunteer. While we would love for everyone to attend, we understand families are busy during the school year and have other important commitments. Minutes are available and posted online for you to review. For the immediate future, all meetings will be online making it easier and convenient for more parents to attend.
However, attending meetings and volunteering at any of the several PTA sponsored events provide opportunities to meet other parents. Always feel free to contact us if you have any ideas, suggestions, or comments. firstname.lastname@example.org
Board meetings occur once a month. General membership meetings for all PTA members are held once a month. At the general membership meetings, PTA members can vote on budgets, changing standing rules, and vote for new board members -- among many other activities. Your input and feedback is important on how the funds are spent. Come join us for a session just to listen in! Links to online meetings will be sent out via the PTA newsletter a few days prior.

WALKING CLUB VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!
Since 1983, Murwood and our seven Walnut Creek public schools have relied on parent
donations to the Walnut Creek Education Foundation TK-12 (WCEF) to ensure the education
your child receives goes beyond what the state funds. Sadly, state funding does not cover the
cost of art, music, science, library, and much more.
It’s up to us. And it won’t happen without your support.
From monthly donations to Venmo, gifts of stock to dine outs, matching gifts to donating your
car, there is a way for all families to participate.
WCEF asks every family to make a tax-deductible investment toward your child’s education. For
$2.00 a day you can INVEST in our public schools, IGNITE student interest, and help ENGAGE
your child and the next leader, teacher, musician, or scientist.
Support your child’s education at www.wcefk12.org/donate
WCEF TK-12 is a non-profit 501(c)(3) federal tax ID #94-2915151.
The Murwood PTA is committed to providing accessibility for all. If you experience difficulty with the accessibility of any web pages or documents on our sites, please click HERE.
