Welcome to the Altamont Parent Teacher Association!

The PTA strives to enrich the educational and social experiences of students by providing fun events and enrichment opportunities.

Fun events include the Kindergarten Ice Cream Social and family nights such as Bingo, Movie Night and the Winter Wonderland Dance. We also provide funding for assemblies, author visits, and other enrichment programs such as Homespun Dance, Book Fairs and George Steele visits.
