    Who We Are

    PTA Mission and Goals

    The OV PTA will provide financial and volunteer support while building community so our students are challenged to reach their full intellectual, social, emotional and physical potential and to develop as thoughtful citizens.  Our goals are aligned with the National PTA mission to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.  

    PTAs serve as a type of forum where parents, teachers, administrators and other concerned adults discuss ways to promote quality education, strive to expand the arts, encourage community involvement, and work for a healthy environment and safe neighborhoods.

    OV PTA supports the work of teachers and staff at Olympic View with events and fundraising. We believe the more people involved with public education, the better the results will be for all. Please take the initiative to volunteer your time.
