Dear Empire Oaks Families,


On behalf of the Empire Oaks’ Parent Teacher’s Association it is a pleasure to welcome you to our 2022-2023 school year! I am excited to be leading this year’s PTA along with an amazing set of Board members.

We are excited to bring back PTA events and traditions that many of our older students have experienced, and many of our younger students will experience for the first time, including Pastries with Parents, the Fall Festival, the Fun Run, the Snowflake Festival, and more!  We know that these events provide a wonderful opportunity for families to connect, and our children to make fun and lasting memories at Empire Oaks. We will also continue to support our children through our fundraisers, which help to keep our Book Vending Machine stocked, support our classrooms, replenish Maker Space Supplies, and support programs like the Meet the Masters Art program.


Empire Oaks is a truly special place. We have an incredible community which includes our students, parents, teachers, staff, and volunteers! PTA is your connection, your support, and your voice, and I strongly encourage every family to become part of our team! You can support the Empire Oaks PTA by:


Becoming a PTA Member – signups are online


Volunteering to support our programs and events


Donating resources or time: Please email me to discuss time and resource contributions that interest you and meet the needs of the PTA and Empire Oaks Elementary School!

Attending PTA meetings: This is where you can get important updates about what is happening at Empire Oaks, make decisions about how PTA funds are spent, and participate in educational programming provided to parents at our meetings through What's Perkin' With Parenzin.


On behalf of the Executive Board, thank you for your support in helping to make the PTA successful at Empire Oaks Elementary. Please feel free to reach out to any Board Member to learn how you can get involved in making this a fantastic year!
