Pleasanton PTA Council Openings

The Pleasanton PTA Council Nominating Committee invites all interested parents and community members to consider serving on the 2018-2019 Pleasanton PTA Council Board. Unlike a school-based PTA/PTSA which works closely with one school, we support 13 units all across Pleasanton and collaborate with district-level leadership in addition to the individual school sites.

  We, the yearbook staff, are in need of pictures for our Multi-Cultural page. If you have any pictures of your child doing anything relating to your culture and/or religion, please email them to us through the HP yearbook email, (harvestyearbook@pleasantonusd.net), accompanied by the name and grade of said child, including a caption summarizing what was happening in the picture which contains information that one cannot automatically see/understand by only looking at said picture. Thank you very much in advance for your pictures. 
Best Regards, 
The yearbook staff.
