What is PTA All About?
The Coal Creek PTA is a group of parents, faculty and staff who work together to make our school a safe, happy, welcoming and exciting place to learn. We meet almost every month of the school year. These meetings are intended to organize and implement fundraising, programming, extracurricular activities and events which enrich our students and support our faculty and staff. PTA often invites teachers or outside speakers for an educational component. Our principal always attends and offers insight on Coal Creek and BVSD topics that are extremely informational and relevant. PTA helps fill the gap when public funding may not be enough to cover the entire scope of the school’s operating budget. PTA is an essential part of our learning community at Coal Creek, helping establish the Equity, Achievement and Climate goals, as well as support them through program assistance. Coal Creek depends on the service of volunteers recruited and managed by PTA.
