Pearl Zanker Elementary School



The Parent Teacher Association is an integral part of the Zanker Community. PTA Officers include a president, a vice president, a secretary, and a treasurer.

The PTA is a great way for you to know what is happening at school. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, build rapport and discuss issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences. By becoming a PTA member, you'll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education. We encourage all parents to get involved in this partnership between the home and school. Membership envelopes will be sent home at the beginning of the year, however, you can always stop by the front office for one.  This year the PTA meetings will be held at 6pm in Room P-2. You can check out Zanker's main calendar to see the scheduled PTA meeting dates and upcoming event dates.
