We have one PTA that serves both CMS and Arroyo and we appreciate your partnership! Your PTA membership, volunteer hours, and donations support teacher grants, classroom supplies, school beautification, library books, community building events and enrichment programs including Art-in-Action and the Arroyo Garden.

Come join the team!

Please help us reach our goal of raising $85,000 to cover Central Arroyo PTA’s proposed annual operating expenses for the 2019-20 school year!  You can support us by becoming a PTA Partner and participating in our annual fun run, Stampede & Soar, on October 6.



We are asking for a one-time PTA Partner donation of $250 in the Fall, which consolidates fundraising efforts and allows for more efficient spending throughout the year. Every donation amount makes a difference, and we thank you in advance for any support you can give the Central Arroyo students and teachers!  DONATE TODAY on the school website or see payment options below. PTA Partnership also includes your annual PTA membership.


Volunteering is a great way to build community while supporting students. There are many options, big and some small, during school hours, and many that can be done from home. See our Volunteer Opportunities page for a complete list of ways to get involved or sign up to help at You can always email with questions.
