The Kester PTA provides our students and staff with many “extra” opportunities no longer provided by LAUSD, such as PE and art classes, a full-time computer lab teacher, a Science Lab with a full-time Teacher’s Assistant, a full-time nurse’s aide, a supervision aide, music and dance classes for grades TK-2, and field trips for all classes at all grade levels.

Of course, these “extras” are not free, so the PTA conducts many fundraisers throughout the year. You are not obligated to participate in any fundraiser, but if every Kester family participated in at least one or two fundraisers each year, we could easily meet our fundraising goals!
