Romona PTA

The ROMONA PTA is excited to welcome you back to the 2022-2023 school year!


Throughout the school year, ROMONA PTA sponsors numerous events and activities for all our students & staff. Your support through dues, donations, time, talent, and energy helps us to continue building the Romona Elementary community to provide an enriching and nurturing learning environment and outstanding Preschool-4th experience for all our children.


There is a role for every parent at Romona Elementary and we encourage you to participate at the level that best suits you and your family.


Our Executive Board is featured below. This dedicated team provides leadership throughout the year for our various committees. The members from the Executive Board can be contacted here:
