What is the PTSA?
The overall purpose of the PTSA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
The Woodlake Elementary Community Charter PTSA is a dedicated group of parents, teachers, staff and students who work to support art education, music education and psychomotor (physical education), as well as buses for field trips, teacher materials, a copy aide, a Primary Learning Center aide and so much more.
