PTA Membership & Fundraising



Parent engagement is key to student success. In San Carlos, our students benefit from strong parent involvement in school PTAs and the San Carlos Education Foundation.  We encourage you to support both organizations. Together they help to ensure that our San Carlos schools continue to provide a quality, well-rounded education.


Central/Arroyo PTA


The Central/Arroyo PTA is grateful to the school community for contributing to our efforts to raise funds to support our students. Our PTA focuses on advocating for our students, supporting our teachers and staff, as well as building a strong school community. By donating to the Central/Arroyo PTA you support essential programs and events at our school. These programs include teacher stipends, art supplies, enrichment, staff appreciation, community building, special projects and needs, walk-a-jog shirts, healthy cities tutoring, and much, much more.


Your PTA membership lends your voice to advocacy efforts on behalf of children and educators at the local, state, and national levels. We appreciate a one time donation of $250 per family, this donation includes a family PTA family membership. Teacher/Individual memberships are $10.
