Cadwallader PTA Welcomes You
Your volunteer time, fundraiser support, PTA membership and donation to the PTA make a huge impact on your child’s educational experience. Studies indicate that parents’ involvement in their child’s education greatly affects a student’s academic performance. There is no better way to support your child than to join the PTA!
There are several ways to support the PTA:
Become a PTA member
Our goal is 100% parent and teacher participation. Becoming a PTA member does not mean you need to attend monthly meetings, but you are always welcome to. Your membership fee alone enables PTA to provide all school assemblies; every student benefits!
Support our year–round PTA activities
Volunteer a few hours of your time for the following events. These are just some of the events you can look forward to in the upcoming year.
Trunk & Treat
Family Valentine Dance

Monthly PTA board meetings are held on campus on the 2nd Monday of every month at 6pm in the cafeteria. General Association meetings will be held throughout the year as well. Dates will be posted on our school calendar.

There are a variety of ways parents can participate in the school’s improvement through the collaborative efforts of the School Site Council (SSC), the English Language Advisory Council (ELAC), and the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). The PTA is an organization that seeks to unite the school staff and community through positive activities. The SSC meets regularly to monitor the instructional program and give input regarding the School Site Plan.
In addition to daily classroom volunteer opportunities, and attending field trips, Title I Family Nights are held during the year that include such themes as Family Art Night, Family Literacy Night, Family Science Night and Family Authorship Nights.
Parents can also get involved in the Walk n' Roll program that the City of San Jose is sponsoring through a multi-year grant. Wednesdays are Walk n' Roll days where parents are encouraged to walk to school with their students to be involved in a school-wide event, to get some healthy exercise, and to help with the traffic congestion around the school. Parents volunteer to help with the direction of traffic in the front of the school.
Parents or community members who wish to participate in leadership teams, school committees, school activities, or become a volunteer may contact the school at (408) 270-4950.
