What is Coyote Creek PTA?
Here’s where we come in! Coyote Creek PTA , the same as the other PTAs of SRVCPTA, is comprised of our school’s own parents and local community members, working together to achieve our school’s specific goals for our kids. The PTA MEMBERS ( ~ YOU! ~) are the voice and drivers of the events and programs that we organize for our kids! The PTA EXECUTIVE BOARD’s mission is to help foster a welcoming and positive environment for all of our Coyote Creek families…and to understand, as best as we can, what our parents would like to see implemented in order to enrich our children’s experience at school! We achieve this goal in two ways:
  • By holding Association meetings every 2 months to discuss and obtain feedback regarding the programs and events we provide. Everyone is welcome and all opinions will be heard! It is a friendly and casual environment! We sincerely encourage you to be part of this community-building discussion.
  • By fundraising annually to pay for the programs that are scheduled!
When you become a PTA MEMBER, your membership dues are the first step in fundraising for our programs here at Coyote Creek. When we all get together and become members of Coyote Creek PTA, your membership dues turns into a larger sum and really starts working for our kids! As a member, you are also further exposed to the happenings here at Coyote Creek  Elementary by way of PTA communications and a network of parents and teachers! There is no further commitment upon becoming a member!
