Who Is the PTA?

We all are!

Parents and guardians along with teachers at Thousand Oaks pool their talents to provide practical support for our school.


You can participate by coming to a meeting or event, by joining the PTA, or by signing up to help with something for as little as an hour


Here are the PTA Event Leaders and Board for this year. We'd love to answer your questions or say hi, so give a shout!
