PTA builds educational enrichment for our children


The Live Oak PTA serves our elementary school community in San Ramon, CA. We are a non-profit 501(c)3, volunteer run organization affiliated with the California State PTA and the National PTA

PTA is the nation's oldest, largest and highest profile volunteer organization working on behalf of public schools, children and families. PTA volunteers work in their schools and communities to improve the education, health and welfare of all children and youth. 

The Live Oak PTA provides school 
time programs, after school activities and evening/weekend family events to build our 
community and enhance our students’ experience at Live Oak. All of our events are run by volunteers. 

We hold open, public meetings of the Live Oak PTA Association every two months throughout the year in which we present our full budget, discuss and vote on all of our events and activities and receive reports from all of our Executive Board members. 

Membership in the PTA is not required to attend our Association Meetings and all who are interested in supporting education, children and family are encouraged to attend.  Meetings are listed on our calendar on this site and agendas can be found on the meetings page.
