What is PTA?

PTA stands for Parent-Teacher Association, and operates as a non-profit group with tax-exempt status.  The mission of all incorporated PTAs within California is:

"... to positively impact the lives of all children and families by representing our members, and empowering and supporting them with skills in advocacy, leadership, and communications."

Maloney Elementary is a PTA unit, meaning that it primarily exists to serve the students and their families at Maloney elementary.  The unit also participates in the broader PTA organization within the City of Fremont (Fremont Council), the Peralta District (serving Alameda county), and the State of California.

We are governed/assisted/trained in our mission to Maloney students by:
