Join the PTA

2013-2014 Membership Campaign and Annual Fund Drive

Each fall, Chabot families are asked to join the Chabot PTA and make a financial contribution to the Chabot PTA Annual Fund. Parent participation is a big part of what makes Chabot such a great school, and Annual Fund contributions from Chabot families help us pay for crucial enrichment activities that the Oakland Unified School District is not able to provide.

  • Annual PTA membership costs only $5 per person, and all adults in our school community are encouraged to join.
  • PTA Membership lasts one year and must be renewed annually.
  • Our membership goal is to get 100% of parents, teachers and school administrators to join the Chabot PTA.
  • Our goal for the Annual Fund is to raise $115,000, or 30% of the Chabot PTA’s operating budget.
  • $220,000, or 60% of the PTA’s operating budget, goes directly to enrichment programs in the classroom, including art, science, music, garden, media, library and kindergarten Spanish.
  • Contributions to the Annual Fund are entirely voluntary, and all donations are welcome, no matter how big or how small. The suggested annual donation is $550 per child.
