Teacher and students walking


PTO / Site Council

We invite parents and guardians to become members of the PTO or our Site Council. Both groups are vital to our learning goals at Mission Valley and present venues for discussion, decision making, and thought-provoking dialogue. Also, current education research demonstrates a strong correlation between parent involvement and increased student achievement. PTO meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month at 6:00 PM in the lounge.

We also invite parents and guardians to volunteer in classrooms. We can always use your help with organizing, preparing materials, or reading with our students. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our school office, as there is a process involved to ensure our students’ safety.

Mission Valley Elementary Activities

We appreciate all that our volunteers do for our students and staff at Mission Valley. Our teachers have busy days, so lending a hand with special events and activities is very helpful. Some examples of special events and activities include:

  • Back to School
  • Open House
  • Meet and Greet
  • Tricky Tray 
  • Prose and Poetry Festival
  • Fun Friday 
  • School Pictures 
  • Field Trips 


School Site Council (SSC)

The school site council (SSC) is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees, and students (at the middle school level) that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. The members of the school site council are elected by their peers.



English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is a group of English Learner parents and community members who advise and assist schools in making important decisions related to services for English Learners. The California Education Code requires an ELAC be formed at schools with more than 20 identified English Learners. Any student's parent or community member can serve on the ELAC. The ELAC executive board is made up of five ELAC members who can only be elected by parents of English Learners. At least three members of the executive board must be parents of English Learners themselves. The chairperson must be a parent of an English Learner in attendance at the school.
