FAQs about PTA membership

Why join PTA?

By becoming a PTA member, you are supporting Rancho San Diego Elementary School and your child’s education. Membership dues go towards new technology, field trips, assemblies, music, art and science programs, special family events, and lots more! A portion of your dues goes directly to council, district, state, and national PTA, giving each of us a voice on a local, state, and national scale.

What will I have to do as a PTA member?

That’s entirely up to you. You aren’t required to do anything at all. But if you are looking for a volunteer opportunity, we never turn down help! 

How do I sign up?

Glad you asked! As of August 2019, we are offering online PTA registration and payments for the first time. 

Alternately, fill out the PTA membership form you received from your child, attach your check made payable to RSD PTA, and return it to school.

Who can join PTA?

You! We encourage parents, relatives, teachers, staff members, friends, and community members to join.


 Annual membership is $10 for a single member. 

what do I receive for joining PTA?

Besides strengthening your child’s education, the PTA, and Rancho San Diego Elementary, there are discounts available to you through the national PTA.
