About the Alameda PTA Council

The Alameda PTA Council (PTAC) is the umbrella organization for PTA units in the city of Alameda, California. Operating as part of the Peralta PTA District, we  support Alameda's parents and teachers to promote the mission of the California State PTA:

"The mission of the California State PTA is to positively impact the lives of all children and families by representing our members, and empowering and supporting them with skills in advocacy, leadership and communications."

The Alameda PTA Council:

  • Promotes communication among PTA units to share best practices and common concerns.
  • Provides a unified voice in relationships with AUSD and other community partners.
  • Connects the Alameda PTAs with the resources, support, and advocacy of the Peralta District and California State PTA organizations.

Reflections Art Program
The National PTA Reflections Program is an arts recognition and achievement program for students. The Reflections Program provides opportunities for students to express themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a per-selected theme while increasing community awareness of the importance of the arts in education. Each year there is an Annual theme that students must focus on to create their artwork. The theme for 2019 is "Look Within."  

Each year hundreds of thousands of students in preschool through grade 12 create and submit original works in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Students may participate in the national awards program through their school's PTA. The Reflections Program was established in 1969 by National PTA board member Mary Lou Anderson. Since that time, more than 10 million students have participated in the program. Learn how to participate in the PTA Reflections program
