  • About | SVPTA

    A Little Bit About Us SVPTA Mission Statement​ ​ The mission of the Saddleback Valley PTA is to empower our units, families and community members to become effective advocates for all children. Hello SVUSD community, My name is Catherine Beeny and I am delighted to be the SVPTA Council President for the 2023-24 school year. I am full of great enthusiasm and optimism as we embark on the new school year. I’ve been involved with PTA since my now senior daughter was in kindergarten and I volunteered to be the Jog-a-Thon chairperson, because I thought it would a piece of cake 🤣. I had no idea what I was doing back then, but I knew that I loved what PTA stood for and the way it brought everyone at our school together and made you feel that you were a part of something great. This year, SVPTA is focused on rebuilding relationships, and fostering community and togetherness within our school PTAs and the entire SVUSD community. We have a lot of big ideas and can't wait to get started. I encourage anyone who wants to be a part of the fun to join your school PTA and find out how you can make a difference. I look forward to a year of collaboration, growth, and shared achievements as we embark on this journey of building an even stronger SVUSD community. Your ideas, contributions, and participation are key to our success, and I can't wait to see the positive impact we'll create together. Catherine Beeny SVPTA Goals for 2023-24 PEOPLE: ​ ​ Strengthen the relationship between unit, council and our communities. Provide council mentors for unit officers. Provide training for officers. ​ PROGRAMS: ​ Share ideas for successful programs and work collaboratively when possible. Encourage the exchange of ideas and discuss concerns among units. Encourage and strengthen family engagement. ​ PROMOTE PTA: ​ By fostering legislative awareness and advocacy within all units by educating members on pertinent legislative issues and encouraging attendance at Sacramento Safari and legislative roundtables. By encouraging attendance at California State PTA Convention. By using Council and State PTA Resources including the toolkit, websites, bylaws, and other sources of communication.
