As many of you know, our big PTA fundraiser is typically the Teravista Lighthouse Festival. This is our time to come together as a community for some fun and fundraising. We are looking forward to bringing the Lighthouse Festival back in 2022, but Teravista still needs your support right now. The past couple of years have been different in so many ways but in many other ways they are the same! We still have amazing teachers and staff doing all the work to teach and support the kids of Teravista Elementary and their families. And we, the PTA, still want to support the kids, families, and staff, too. 

the Teravista PTA’s mission is: To make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

financial support

One way we live out our mission is through our commitment to purchasing necessary educational programming and educational tools, supporting our TvE staff through appreciation give backs, and community giving.

The PTA designs and coordinates the sale of the Teravista Elementary Yearbook each year.  We offer the yearbook to the Teravista Elementary community as a give back in that we don’t typically make money on the sale of the yearbooks.  Instead, we use one year’s sales to fund the next year’s production costs.


In addition to giving back financially, we give our time every year to assist in eye and hearing screenings, cafeteria support, picture day, book fairs, Kindergarten Round Up and re-shelving books in the library and literacy library.
