Who We Are
The Sunset Valley Elementary PTA is a group of parents, teachers and community members committed to improving the educational experience of our students. The PTA focuses on strengthening parent involvement, supporting our teachers, and enhancing academics, including our cherished dual-language program.
To accomplish these goals, the PTA sponsors a wide range of events and programs throughout the year. This includes fundraisers, like Cheetah Fest, our annual festival. It also includes community-building events, like dances and dual-language parent potlucks. It includes academic programs, like Math Pentathlon and the Spelling Bee. And it includes help for our teachers, including a large grant to help fund technology instruction as well as a teacher grant fund.
None of it would be possible without the help of countless volunteers. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts and encourage you to get involved today.
The Sunset Valley Elementary PTA is a 503(c)(3) non-profit corporation, aligned with Texas PTA. View our approved SVE PTA Bylaws and Standing Rules by clicking the links. These documents govern how our PTA operates as a non-profit supporting our beloved Sunset Valley Elementary.
What We Do
Below are just a few of the things we’re doing to enhance our kids’ educational experience and support our school. Click on the below infographic to learn more about the kinds of programs and initiatives we manage.
Are only SVE parents allowed to join?
No! Anyone can join the SVE PTA — parents, students, relatives, friends, neighbors, co-workers, community members!
Do I have to go to meetings?
No! (Although of course we hope you do attend our general meetings.)
Do I have to volunteer or spend a lot of time at the school?
No! Joining the PTA is not the same as volunteering. If you choose to volunteer, we would LOVE the help—but volunteering is not required.
Are there any other benefits to joining?
Yes! As a PTA Member you receive national and local discounts on a variety of services and products. If you qualify for free/reduced lunches, you are also eligible to apply for a scholarship to an after school enrichment program at SVE, like soccer, science club, etc.
When I join SVE PTA, am I also joining Texas PTA and National PTA?
Yes! When you join, the $10 dues are split between our local campus, Texas PTA and National PTA, and you become a member of all 3 PTAs at once! Texas PTA and National PTA also advocate for all children during legislative sessions and during non-legislative years. Check out what each is supporting right now: Texas PTA Advocacy & National PTA Advocacy.
