Quick link to Live Oak PTA Membership for Teachers, Staff and Administrators: www.liveoakpta.net/teacher-registrationBecause of the high cost of processing payments through google check out (and the low cost of teacher/staff membership dues) we're only accepting payment by check/cash. Please make checks payable to the Live Oak PTA and include your reference number in the memo section or with your cash payment. Payments (with reference number) can be left in the PTA mailbox. Live Oak Directories are included in your membership. Directories will be delivered no late than the first week of October via back pack mail.
