Become a Member of the Reidy Creek PTA!
Did you know that one of the BEST ways to get involved at school is to become a member of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA)? Decades of research shows that children receive higher grades, have better attendance, and more consistently complete their homework when parents are involved at school. By collaborating with other parents and staff through the PTA, you can make your child’s academic year FUN and MEMORABLE!
Think only parents can sign up? Think again! Our PTA also includes grandparents, family friends, community members, and businesses! Fun fact: During the 2019-2020 school year, Reidy Creek Elementary had the most PTA members in Escondido Unified so give yourselves a pat on the back!
Checks can be made out to “Reidy Creek PTA,” and forms below can be filled out and returned to teachers!
If you would like to join online, the link can be found HERE , please make sure to include your student’s name and teacher for their class to receive credit.

Do I have to attend PTA Meetings?
Attendance at monthly PTA meetings is encouraged to help you stay informed but is not mandatory to be in the PTA. PTA meetings are held on campus the third Tuesday of each month at 6:15 pm. Click here for a list of upcoming meetings. Snacks and childcare (for your students) are provided FREE of charge! We also have English to Spanish translation services available.
At PTA meetings, parents will learn about upcoming school events and have the opportunity to share in the planning process. PTA meetings are a casual forum to meet other parents, our wonderful Principal, teachers and staff, ask questions, voice concerns, and offer suggestions for enriching our school. Join in on the fun as we raffle off Reidy Creek t-shirts and prizes at every meeting!
We hope you’ll come to our PTA meetings and join the pack! Not sure if you want to become a member? You are more than welcome to attend the meeting to learn more or reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
