You may email PTA  at if you are interested in the position of treasurer.


We’ve completed the first step, where we learned about your concerns as well as the things you appreciate about Camarena and the District. We have now moved to the second step in the process, where we learn about your priorities. From March 3-19, we ask that you assign stars to ideas that have been shared and that most align with your priorities. The purpose is to help us improve our community, so we can better serve the needs of  our students. If you did not receive an email invitation on March 3 to participate, please visit the below website to self-register.
