Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

  • A letter from our president: 

    Greetings Cougar Families!

    My name is Sarah Bell and I am the 2021-2022 PTA President for Altadena Arts Magnet (AAM). I am excited and optimistic as we head into the new school year. If you are new to AAM or to PTA, I want to welcome you and let you know why we count on your membership and support. Parent involvement has been proven to be the greatest predictor of student success! Our PTA membership and involvement grew considerably last school year and I want to continue the momentum. It is my hope that as we begin to see each other again we can engage meaningfully. It is my goal to foster an environment that is welcoming and inclusive for all of our families. Heading into this school year we move forward with full knowledge that our time together should be productive because this time is precious.

    PTA is a group for parental engagement, advocacy, and support of school-based programs. Our PTA is a transparent organization. By participating in the PTA you will have a direct effect on the culture of our school and your student’s experience. You can join on-line at: We will also be present at the Welcome Back event in August and will be happy to answer any questions. I urge you to join, so that your voice can be heard.

    In addition to becoming a member, we will need parent volunteers throughout the school year and whatever your interest, talents, or availability are, we will have a way for you to participate. I am looking forward to meeting all of our Cougar Families, and I wish us all the very best for the new school year.
    Please remember, the #1 reason to join PTA is to support your child and our school.

    Sarah E. Bell
    PTA President, Altadena Arts Magnet
