Our Team is Missing a Key Player… You!

PTA Leaders help to shape the direction of school communities.  Step up to leadership or volunteer for a committee and help us lead our PTA, and our school, into the future.

Join us and help make our PTA community the best it can be.  We are looking for volunteers for our board and committees. All PTAs have access to free, job specific training, so your donation of time and talent will have a real impact in your school community.

PTA has many resources for you to learn and grow.  Don’t be afraid to help your local PTA.  We are all here to help each other.  We have gathered many resource links for you in one easy to navigate page.  This includes links to 50 recent training videos and 10 training videos in Spanish

Contact your local PTA leaders by viewing the “Join a PTA Near You” page and selecting the city where your local PTA is located.  You may also contact any of our Fifth District PTA Officers or Council Leaders on our District Board page.

Finally, don’t forget to like and follow us on Facebook.

Welcome PTA Leaders

Welcome to Fifth District PTA, serving the children and families in San Bernardino County since March 12, 1913. For over 108 years, PTA/PTSA leaders have been positively impacting the lives of all children and families. 

In those 108 years, there’s no doubt that our leaders have overcame challenges and moved forward.  Together, we can overcome our latest challenges and grow into an even more successful organization.  

My name is Ray Kinyon and I’m your Fifth District PTA President until June 30, 2023.  We have an amazing team who is here to be your resource for anything you need. While we are continuing to complete our team, we have all the key components in place to be successful and to help you succeed. 

I know we have a lot of rock-star PTA leaders out there and we look forward to working with you, your school administration and local communities.  

I feel communication is of utmost importance.  Timely communication to and from our leaders will ensure we all have the latest information. Some of the tools we will use is email, website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Band.  Be sure to like and follow us. Please ensure you check your email frequently and visit our website and other social media platforms often.  

Please don’t hesitate to contact us directly by visiting our “Board Members” web page.  Here you will be able to send us a message by completing the contact form. We want to hear your suggestions, issues and what’s happening at your PTA/PTSA association.

I hope to speak to many of you over the next several months and we look forward to serving you for the next two years.

Thank you!

Ray Kinyon
