Mountain View Elementary PTA is our local unit. The local unit is the most important division of the PTA. All other divisions exist to serve the local unit PTA. The local unit PTA is organized and chartered by Georgia PTA in accordance with authority granted to Georgia PTA by National PTA bylaws. The procedures and requirements for the organization of a local unit are set forth in the Georgia PTA Bylaws, and it is a self-governing body. The local unit PTA plans its programs and activities to meet the needs of children and youth in its own school and community. The national and state PTA offer guidelines and program aids to help local units plan their programs and projects. The local unit promotes those initiatives and programs that apply to its community and modifies them to meet their own needs.


The tremendous success of the Mountain View PTA is due to the outstanding support and participation of our membership. Whether you choose to volunteer time in your child's classroom, help at the fall festival, or serve as chair of a PTA committee, your child and others will benefit from your involvement and engagement with our school community.

We welcome you to join in the journey!
