WELCOME TO CLIFTONDALE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PTA
We would like to extend an invitation for you to join the Cliftondale Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
PTA is the oldest and largest organization protecting the rights of children. As education is essential to a child's development,
PTA works with the school to provide quality education for all children. Your membership dues provide many services
to the children in our school including, but not limited to, cultural art programs, performances, family events, and trips.
Our PTA meetings are held every month, so please come and join us. Attending a PTA meeting is a terrific way to get to
know your CES family, learn about upcoming events, and share your thoughts and ideas.
