About Us

PTA Mission Statement: Every child. One Voice. PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

 

R.H. Dana is a community held together by the support and volunteer hours of parents like you! We strive to create a fun, supportive, caring atmosphere for our school while trying to close any gaps in state educational funding. Please ask parents, grandparents, friends, and students to join. We need YOU!

Programs We Help Provide

What Does the PTA do?

Our PTA focuses on supporting our teachers and staff, as well as building a strong community. We work together to create a fun and engaging place for our students to learn and grow. All of the money we raise goes directly back into our students and our school!

 

The following are just some of the programs the PTA helps provide to our school:

 

Art

Through the Meet The Masters art program, instructors will introduce our students to four historical art masters and in turn students will explore their own artistic abilities. The PTA also organizes the National PTA Reflections Art contest, where students submit their own art based on the annual theme.

Jogathon

In the Spring we will hold our annual Jogathon encouraging movement and community.  Money raised from this event will go towards next year’s programs, field trips, and our garden/nature path projects.

Science

Provide teachers with special funds for science based learning activities.

Library/Reading

In December we will host a Book Fair to build interest in books and to inspire a love of reading.

Field Trips

The PTA sponsors each grade-level field trip, including 5th grade overnight science camp.

Community Connections

We plan to continue to create and strengthen relationships with businesses and organizations in Dana Point.

On Campus Fun

Our goal is to create a fun and enthusiastic environment for our students and staff. We will help bring assemblies back to campus as well as host many events this year including:  

  • Membership Popsicle Party 

  • Fall Family Picnic 

  • Winter Celebration 

  • Hot Chocolate Social 

  • Spring Carnival 

  • Pumpkin Carving Contest 

  • Door Decorations 

  • And more!  

Teacher Appreciation

We host teacher appreciation events throughout the year such as a Welcome Back Breakfast, Holiday Luncheon and multiple Teacher Appreciation Week meals/activities. 

*Please note some activities may have to be put on hold or modified as we have to follow safety guidelines provided by the district.
