PTA Proclamation Kit – Celebrating 125 Years

In honor of PTA’s 125th Anniversary, we are asking cities, counties, and school boards throughout California to recognize PTA. You can make that happen! Not only is this a great opportunity to become a little more civically engaged, it’s is fun and exciting for the kids and volunteers who make up your PTA.

Click here to download the PTA Proclamation Kit to use as your guide in getting started on your PTA proclamation.

Learn how to:

  • Prepare, plan and coordinate for your proclamation request;
  • Access Founders’ Day resources;
  • Use sample phone scripts and letters;
  • Make the most of your proclamation moment and more!

Coordinate your Proclamation Locally

  • Everyone should have the chance to participate. Coordinate locally so you don’t have several requests go to the same government agency.
  • Individual school site PTAs can talk to their principal and see if the PTA can be highlighted at a virtual or in person assembly. 
  • Council PTAs can consider asking the School Board and the city or cities in their council to recognize them during a meeting.
  • District PTAs can consider asking the county/or county’s Board of Supervisors and Board of Education to recognize them during a meeting
