The PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children through Commitment, Diversity, Respect & Accountability.
At El Marino, our 100% volunteer driven organization supports over 50 programs each year that enhance our children’s growth and development as individuals and as citizens within our community.
Our parent and family volunteers consistently provide thousands of hours towards our programs. Whether it’s half an hour or a week long project, we appreciate every minute our EMLS families provide.
800+ parents and families joined our PTA last year. Through contributions and fundraising events, the PTA is able to provide our wide variety of programs.
