Published on Nov 14, 2020

The National PTA has awarded the PTA Council of Pasadena with a $15,000 grant to help meet critical needs of students, families and teachers in their school community due to COVID-19. The funding is made possible by TikTok, a short-form video app and PTA Proud National Sponsor.

“COVID-19 has presented many challenges for families and schools. Now more than ever, PTAs nationwide are working hard to ensure our students, families and educators are safe, healthy and have what they need—focusing on social and emotional wellbeing, resources for distance teaching and learning, bridging the digital divide and addressing food insecurity,” said Leslie Boggs, president of National PTA. “PTA Council of Pasadena is committed to supporting and advocating for their students, families and teachers during this challenging time. With the grant, PTA Council of Pasadena will be able to make even more of a difference for their school community.”

With the grant, PTA Council will use these funds to further PTA’s mission and enhance support for the newly formed at-home school learning environment while supporting PTA units, which guided the selection of the issue area of Distance Learning.

“We are hosting a PTA Listening Session titled “Parent Professional Development Day” on Monday, November 16th from 1 pm – 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., said Allisonne Crawford,
