The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. At John Adams, we serve a culturally diverse community, and we are greatly enhanced by our differences. Over twenty languages are spoken at our school, with a greater population speaking English, Spanish, and Amharic. JAES PTA works for all families, and strives to bring together family, school and community. "Every child. One voice." is our motto.
