For more than a century, PTA has provided support, information and resources to families focused on the health and education of children. The organization was founded in 1897 in Washington, DC, as the National Congress of Mothers by Alice McLellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst. If not for these women, their vision and determination, there would not be a PTA-an organization that has been woven into the very fabric of American life.
By whatever name it has been known, National PTA was created to meet a profound challenge: to better the lives of children. And today, it continues to flourish because PTA has never lost sight of its goal: to change the lives of children across our great nation for the better.
AVMS PTSA works to provide its members with information, programs and activities that will support the goals of PTA. The PTSA provides a representative to the Capistrano Unified Council PTSA Legislation Team to work with government officials on related legislation throughout the year.
