Valentine PTA supports a variety of programs and services to enhance the education of every student. PTA continues to support our school's Art, Music, 5th grade Band and Orchestra, educational class events, and Library programs and supplies, instructional aides, and more!

By joining our PTA, you will have opportunities to work firsthand with our students, make new friendships with Valentine families, and directly make a huge difference for our school. Parents, grandparents, family members, and community members can contribute to the Valentine community in many ways. We promise that the time you give to the PTA and the school will be worth your while—and fun! The more you engage with the school community, the more rewarding your experience at Valentine will be for you and your family.

Please join the PTA and consider volunteering - everyone makes a difference in the lives of all our students!



ART – Our Art program is put on by the Pasadena Armory for the Arts and the program, as well as the art supplies, are funded by the Valentine PTA.  In the fall, students have the opportunity to participate in the National PTA Reflections art program.  


MUSIC – Students participate in a school wide music program and perform in the annual Spring Concert and May Day Program.  PTA also supports the 5th Grade Band and Orchestra Programs.


STEM – Each class receives instruction for regularly scheduled STEM lessons (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) in the general education classroom.  Classes access the STEM lab for hands on activities.  Classroom furniture, STEM supplies, and a new program for STEM instruction for this year are funded by Valentine PTA. 


TECHNOLOGY - Valentine PTA funds classroom technology equipment, which includes the iPads and Chromebooks.


LIBRARY – Classes regularly attend the library and students can visit during recess and lunch on scheduled open library days.  Valentine PTA funds the librarian, classroom subscriptions, new library books and magazines.


CLASSROOM SUPPORT – Valentine PTA funds a Teacher Wish List with monies collected through the First Day Pack Online Registration. These monies are divided among the classrooms for educational supplies. Other classroom support funded by PTA includes classroom subscriptions, 5th grade trophies, computers, and P.E. equipment. Room parents also support teachers with many activities throughout the year.
