WHAT WE DO
To make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
How We Help Our School's Community
Teravista Elementary’s PTA supports critical academic needs, provides an active voice on decisions that impact your
child’s health, safety and quality of education, and builds a stronger, more inclusive school community.
Educational Programs & Tools
Our PTA makes it possible for our students to have access to computer programs like Brain Pop and Discovery Education. We also help provide books, dictionaries, board games and chess sets, ear buds for Chromebooks, and sight word and letter flashcards.
Reflections has been a staple arts program in many schools for 50 years. Through the effort of our PTA, Teravista Elementary students have been given the opportunity to participate in a national program dedicated to creative outlets such as dance, literature, music, and visual arts.

Teacher & Staff Appreciation
Every month, our PTA shows appreciation for our staff and teachers by giving them a special treat. We've provided things like breakfasts and lunches, chocolate fountains, and even hand sanitizer! We also help organize the posters and theme days for Teacher Appreciation Week in the spring. We always want our teachers to know how much we appreciate everything they do.
Our PTA organizes the Teravista yearbook every year. We have a representative for each grade level on the yearbook committee. This committee pulls together all the fun pictures taken during family events and class outings. We also help with distribution of the final product at the end of the year.
School Community Events
The PTA is always trying to find new ways to bring our entire community together. We have hosted events like the Family Dance and the Talent Show.

We organize many opportunities for volunteering at our school. We spend time helping in the library shelving books or working the Book Fair. We help with the Lighthouse Festival by donating time, supplies or prizes. We work shifts at the Clothes Closet and so much more!
In addition to helping shelve library books, we also play a big role in organizing volunteers for the bi-annual Book Fair.
Our Fundraising Efforts
In order to help our school’s community, we encourage everyone to participate in our annual fundraisers. Find out all the ways you can help us fund our programs.
The Lighthouse Festival
This is our biggest fundraiser of the year! As you may know, our school has been designated as a “Franklin Covey Lighthouse School” and we love to celebrate this achievement with a festival for the whole school and the greater Teravista community. Proceeds from this event directly benefit Teravista Elementary School students and are used to pay for activities and academic enrichment for all students. These funds are used to extend and enhance the school budget, which enables us to make TvE a better place for our staff and students. We offer multiple levels of sponsorship for this event for our local businesses. Please reach out for more information.
