Your PTA Board (2018 - 2019)

We are a group of parents, educators, grandparents, and staff who act in harmony for the educational benefit and well being of the children at Cleveland. We are a passionate group of individuals: men and women, full-time workers and stay-at-home parents, with families large and small reflecting the diversity of our community and student body.

  • Raise & allocate funds for the educational enrichment of our children

  • Hold events that help create a sense of community & encourage family involvement

  • Help facilitate communication between families and the school





Why Attend: 

Association meetings are a great place to learn what PTA is all about - connect with other parents and community members, meet the PTA board members, hear about upcoming events, ask questions and VOTE on how to use PTA-raised funds. Please come, we want to hear from you! 



PTA does pay for onsite childcare whenever possible but it is not guaranteed, details will be provided in the weeks leading up to each meeting. 


When: 2nd Wednesday each month, 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Where: Cleveland Library

Entrance on Hackett Avenue - if you are facing the office, the library is on the right-hand side near the ramp.
