California State PTA Core Values

     The California State PTA is a professional, non-profit volunteer organization committed to the well-being of all children.  We believe every adult has a responsibility to ensure that all children develop to their full potential.  We believe parents are children’s first teachers and that parent involvement is essential throughout a child’s educational experience.  We believe that family is the basic unit of society responsible for the support and nurturing of all children, and recognize that “the family” may be defined in many ways.  We believe our responsibility includes advocating for the safety and welfare of all children and the opportunity for a quality public education for each child.

At Riverside Council PTA our goal is to enhance the educational experience for Riverside Unified School District students.  We believe that being involved in our school's community leads to higher rewards for our kids. 
How does the Riverside Council PTA help our students?  At a state and national level, we are part of one of the largest child advocacy organizations in the country.  In our community, we fund and organize activities and events that benefit our children at school, at home, and in our community.
