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!


PARENT PARTNERS - $200 Donation

Thank you for supporting CMS/Arroyo PTA! Without our parent partners, many of our wonderful programs would not be possible. All funds benefit CMS and Arroyo teacher grants, library, Art-in-Action, Garden, 8th grade graduation, and more. Your one-time PTA donation of $200 will help us reach our $75,000 goal. Donate today to support programs and events that enrich our students' education.


Central Arroyo PTA membership is available for just $20 per family or $10 per individual. PTA membership offers the opportunity to:

  • Partner with the the CMS/Arroyo school community to ensure a safe, welcoming, and fun learning environment;
  • Meet other parents and build community;
  • Contribute to important discussions that impact your children’s experience at White Oaks School; and
  • Be part of a larger community through the California State PTA and National PTA bodies.

Joining the PTA is an easy way to show your support for the school and does not require a large time commitment – there is no obligation to attend meetings or volunteer for events. If you are interested in becoming more involved, you can always attend the monthly meetings or choose from the many volunteer opportunities available throughout the year.

Sign up for your PTA membership here.


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.
