Welcome to James John PTA online!
PTA is a formal organization composed of parents, teachers, and community members that is intended to facilitate parental participation in our schools. Your James John PTA membership provides you with a voice (and a vote!) in matters related to PTA meetings, events, activities, and resources. A strong PTA membership is a valuable advocate for all issues at the school, district, and state level. Becoming a member of the PTA is encouraged and gives you the opportunity to vote on the PTA budget and important decisions regarding the school. Visit our facebook page at www.facebook.com/JamesJohnSchoolPTA for more information about who we are, and what we do.
James John PTA Membership Dues : $10 - one individual membership/one vote
- James John PTA memberships include $2.25 for National PTA, $6.25 for Oregon PTA and $1.00 for Portland PTA.

Volunteering is an excellent way to learn more about your child’s school, build community and enhance your child’s school experience. If you are interested in volunteering at James John, please complete a PPS background check (https://volunteer.pps.net/) and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be contacted by a committee chair or by another volunteer. We have a range of opportunities both short and longer term and will work with you to find a way that respects your schedule.
