Our Parents’ Committee Welcomes You!
The Alta Sierra Elementary School Parent Teachers’ Committee is a central part of our great school. Our active parents are a big part of why Alta Sierra is so successful.
What we do: We support the school through community events and fundraising – in fact, we raise more than $30,000 each year. This allows us to support vital programs like student field trips, assemblies, computer lab, library, art classes, the Accelerated Reader program and much more. We also supplement classroom equipment and supplies. We also worked with community organizations to install a hands-on learning garden that is now maintained through volunteers.
- Fall Jog-a-thon
- Spring Fundraiser (formerly Casino Night)
- Dinner Nights
Community events and activities include:
- Movie Night under the stars
- Pancake Breakfast
- Mistletoe Mall
- Storybook Night
- Over $6,000 each year available to classroom teachers for supplies and activities.
- Over $7,000 each year provided for field trips to fantastic places, such as the Pumpkin Patch, the local Nutcracker, Coloma, the railroad museum, the Sacramento Zoo and more.
- Students have enjoyed and benefited from assemblies like the Skydome Planetarium and UC Davis Expolorit Family Science Night.
- Monthly Art Docent lessons for every class.
- Installation of a learning garden and orchard.
- Created a Farm-to-School program with a weekly produce cart.
- Bought picnic tables for outside lunches.
