A student’s education doesn’t end once they walk across that high-school graduation stage. That’s why California State PTA has two scholarships to help high school seniors achieve their college dreams and life goals.
- $750 Volunteer Service Scholarship – This scholarship recognizes graduating seniors for their volunteer service in schools and communities, and allows them to register for courses at accredited colleges, universities, trade or technical schools
- $500 Dr. Ralph E. White Graduating Senior Scholarship – Honoring the volunteer and public-service legacy of Dr. Ralph E. White and his wife, Eleanor, this scholarship provides $500 each to two successful applicants of the Volunteer Service Scholarship who intend to pursue a career in a medical field.
Applications are due February 1. All scholarship applications require current membership at PTAs in good standing, so if you know a student who is not yet a PTA member but is interested in applying, be sure to contact your local PTA to join today or join online at www.capta.org/join!

Major changes are happening in how K-12 students in California are taught science. California State PTA is developing resources to help families understand what’s changing and what to expect as the new science standards are rolled out in local schools. Your input is essential so we make sure we know what parents need.
Please take a few minutes to participate in our survey by clicking on the button to the right by July 20.
Also, we hope you’ll share this link with other PTA members who have K-12 children, and encourage them to participate in the survey as well. If you have any questions about the survey, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.

California State PTA will be holding an electronic membership training webinar for council PTA leaders on Tuesday, July 10, from 6 – 7 p.m. Please pass along this invitation to your entire board, including treasurers.
You will receive an invitation from our partner and the electronic membership system developer TOTEM to join the system. Please do this as soon as you can so we can answer your questions on the webinar.
This webinar will dive a little deeper into the electronic membership system. We’ll demonstrate how members will use the system, how leaders will sign up, what reports units, councils and district will be able to access and what they look like. We’ll show you how to sign leaders into the system, add your bank accounts and get ready to get started. And of course, there will be an opportunity for input and for questions.
Haven’t seen the new system yet? Feel free to join Golden State PTA on the electronic system at www.capta.org/join and support our statewide scholarships and grants programs.
“The library in summer is the most wonderful thing because there you get books on any subject and read them each for only as long as they hold your interest, abandoning any that don’t, halfway or a quarter of the way through if you like, and store up all that knowledge in the happy corners of your mind for your own self and not to show off how much you know or spit it back at your teacher on a test paper.” – Polly Horvath
