A Message from Our President

Irvine Unified Council PTA

A Message from our Council President 2020-22

July 1, 2021

Hello Irvine Units!

What a surreal sixteen months this has been. But here we are, halfway through 2021, with a new school year just around the corner, and we are ready to PTA. Our Irvine Council Unit PTAs are strong, flexible, and resilient. We continue to make a difference, supporting our students, families and schools in wonderful ways. PTA-ing is what we do. However, the reality is that doing it right now is not often easy or straightforward or even familiar—which can be kind of an overwhelming, scary thing. We are here to remind you that you are not alone. Irvine Unified Council PTA is here to help and we have lots of resources for you, including:

  • WhatsApp for Irvine unit presidents to make connections

  • As-needed, Friday virtual roundtables to answer your questions and share and learn from each other

  • A monthly Spotlight newsletter to help keep you informed

  • Trainings through our own IUCPTA as well as our 4th District PTA so you can learn how to become a stronger PTA leader and run your non-profit

  • Monthly president meetings to share information and connect you with our district and community leaders

  • Personalized, one-on-one support—we’re just an email, text, phone call or zoom meeting away with assigned mentor teams for every unit

We have an incredible Council team this year, ready to empower you to continue doing amazing things for our students, our school communities, and beyond. IUCPTA is more than just a “pass-thru” PTA for our units. We are advocates too! We will be working hard to engage families and communities to advocate for all children, driving home PTA’s core values of collaboration, commitment, diversity, respect, and accountability.

The mission of California State PTA is to positively impact the lives of all children and families.

For the next two years, we will continue our mission and focus on making the world around us more inclusive and equitable for all children and families. Working together, we can make a difference. Thank you for your time and commitment to our children and PTA. We appreciate you!

President 2020-22
