In late August, National PTA® recognized San Pablo Elementary School and San Pablo Elementary PTA as a National PTA School of Excellence for their achievement in building effective family-school partnerships.

Being recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence demonstrates San Pablo Elementary School and San Pablo Elementary PTA’s leadership and commitment to supporting student success and continuous school improvement.
“The partnership between San Pablo Elementary School and San Pablo Elementary PTA is a true example of what can be accomplished when schools and families work together,” said Laura Bay, president of National PTA. “San Pablo Elementary School and San Pablo Elementary PTA have put strong practices into place that involve families in the life of the school, and we are pleased to recognize them as a National PTA School of Excellence.”National PTA launched its National PTA School of Excellence program to help strengthen family-school partnerships across the country and make measurable progress in the areas of education, health and safety and arts and cultural exploration. As a National PTA School of Excellence, families at San Pablo Elementary feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and the PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement.To be recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence, PTAs evaluate their current family engagement strategies and submit a goal for school improvement that families, teachers and administrators have set together. They improve upon their family engagement strategies throughout the year, while focusing on their goal. The National PTA School of Excellence designation is awarded to those schools that have demonstrated improvement in the family-school partnership and significant progress toward their goal.
