\  Membership

Your membership allows us to cover our basic operating expenses. The remainder goes to State and National PTA to support programs and legislation affecting all children in our state and nation. Your membership allows you voting privileges at our meetings and allows you to help support all of the enrichment programs the PTA brings to our school.
Our annual membership drive runs through the month of September but membership is accepted throughout the year. Membership forms are located in the front office. You are also welcome to contact our Membership Chair, Toni Gentry at

Tiger Pride Fund

In addition to the academic curriculum at La Patera, children experience enrichment classes in Music, Art, Science, Computer Technology,and Physical Education. The Tiger Pride Fund is a direct fundraising campaign sponsored by the PTA to raise monies to support these wonderful enrichment classes & programs and expand our children’s education.
Although the Goleta School District provides partial financial support for these enrichment classes, the PTA provides a significant portion needed to ensure the continuation of these programs.

We hope each family will donate to the Tiger Pride Fund campaign. Its success is essential to keep these quality enrichment opportunities at La Patera School and requires a commitment on behalf of our families. A donation in any amount is appreciated and needed. Donations are tax-deductible and your employer may offer a matching contribution at your request.
