JOIN OUR CONSTRUCTION CREW!
Become a member of our Oso Grande PTA…we need you! It is a great way to get involved in our school & support our children. $5.60 of every PTA Membership/Donation goes to California State PTA—and the rest comes directly back to our school! To make all of these amazing opportunities possible for our Grizzlies (field trips, assemblies, Family Fun Nights, Art Master’s program, technology upgrades, STEAM Labs, etc), it comes out to approximately $200 per student per year to bring them to life. The more members we have, the more support we have for our school! Becoming a member doesn’t automatically mean you need to volunteer. 🙂 Your donation is help enough! But, if you are interested in volunteering & sharing your talents, we would love it!! We have both smaller roles & large ones depending on the time you can give. **Join today at www.osograndepta.com!
OUR WEBSITE HAS BEEN “UNDER CONSTRUCTION” TOO!!
Check out www.osograndepta.com…it is a central location for many things! You can join PTA, make a general donation, buy Grizzly SpiritWear, sign up to volunteer, fill out your child’s PTA participation waiver, and more!! You can stay connected socially too…

Occasionally, we have extras so please stop by even if you forgot to get your ticket.
