Upcoming Events and Announcements!

Work on 2024-25 Reflections Entries This Summer!

Student Artists! You have the opportunity to be recognized for your masterpieces. The theme for the 2024-25 Reflections Art Program has been announced - “Accepting Imperfection.” Since entries won’t be due from your school’s PTA Reflections program until this fall, you have the whole summer to work on your masterpieces! Remember, the Artist Statement and Interpretation of Theme are very important, not just the creative way you express your art form, so spend time reflecting on “Accepting Imperfection,” and what that means to you. Can’t wait to see your entries this fall!

HSA and Student particpation Awards

May 15

There was so much joy in the air last night, as we felicitated those who’ve served the community. From someone who has spent a lifetime fostering local kids to another who served the school community for more than a decade. From a teacher who works tirelessly with special Ed kids to a mom who juggles several volunteering roles with a smile on her face. Live Oak PTA celebrates them all!  As we wrap up the year, we look forward to many more years working hand in hand with those enhancing the quality of children and the larger community.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week

May 6-10

The Teachers and Staff Appreciation week was a huge success and thank you to all the volunteers for your support and participation. Our superstar teachers and staff felt greatly appreciated by the week-long celebration that included a special breakfast, movie-time snacks, catered lunch (Chipotle), frozen Menchie’s treats, and delicious desserts, as well as the special activities, treats and gifts by our kids each day during the week.

Special mention to PTA volunteers Lili Shiau and Vidhi Modi for organizing the week long event for our staff!

Spring Carnival

What a great evening it was! Thank you so much for all the support in making our Inaugural Spring Carnival event a grand success!

SRV Council PTA Statement on Inclusive Event Planning 


“PTAs everywhere must understand and embrace the uniqueness of all individuals, appreciating that each contributes a diversity of views, experiences, cultural heritage/traditions, skills/abilities, values and preferences. When PTAs respect differences yet acknowledge shared commonalities uniting their communities, and then develop meaningful priorities based upon their knowledge, they genuinely represent their communities. When PTAs represent their communities, they gain strength and effectiveness through increased volunteer and resource support.” CAPTA Inclusion & Diversity 

 

The San Ramon Valley Council of PTAs (“Council”) is committed to supporting our units in their efforts to continue to develop effective family engagement opportunities that are inclusive. PTA leadership, as community representatives, should collaborate with school administration to identify and eliminate barriers to family engagement related to race, ethnicity, culture, socioeconomic status, family structure, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, and religion. 


Council strongly encourages units to offer inclusive events. We value inclusion and diversity of our various communities. Culture, family structure, gender and sexual orientation should not deter participation in PTA events. Families and students should not need to call out their differences to feel included. 


Gender-neutral events are more welcoming and culturally inclusive. A majority of units in the SRVUSD have replaced gender-specific events with gender-neutral ones. Parent-child events need not be cancelled; rather, the nomenclature is changing with the times. Units have received positive responses to events such as “Pastries with Parents,” “Family Dance,” “Sweetheart Dance” or “VIP Dance”. These are just a few creative ways to use language to foster inclusion. 


PTA stands for “All Children, All Families” and our motto is “Every Child, One Voice.” National and California PTA have long encouraged PTA units to plan events that are inclusive. Inclusive events more effectively serve all children and all families and lead to greater parental and community engagement, which benefits every child.  We recommend that unit Presidents collaborate with their principal on inclusive language and events so that students and families are always welcome to events sponsored by the PTA.
