Join the Joaquin Miller Parent Teacher Association

The Joaquin Miller PTA (JM-PTA) is a local unit of the External LinkOakland Council, Peralta District of The California Congress of Parents, Teachers, and Students, Inc. At Joaquin Miller we have traditionally had a membership rate of about 75% of our families. Membership is obtained through paying District PTA dues. PTA meetings and Parent Education Presentations are held at 6:30 p.m., during the third week of each month of the school year, unless otherwise changed by the Executive Board. Child care and a community dinner are provided at no cost to make it easier for families to attend. In attendance, you'll find friendly and passionate parents, teachers, and the principal, working together to make our school the best it can be. Our efforts and fundraising fully fund our computer lab and library, physical education, arts enrichment, teacher’s assistants, field trips and supplies for all classrooms.
