Twice a year we sponsor a book fair for our Croc families. These events are also a fundraising opportunity bringing in $1-2,000 for our school! The Book Fair Chair evaluates vendors to present to board for approval, coordinates dates including drop off and pick up of materials, schedules volunteers, oversees day-to-day operations during event.

The Reading Is Fundamental coordinator organizes the annual book give away at our school. Once a year, sometimes twice, every student is able to shop from hundreds of age appropriate books and select at least one to keep. These books are provided free of charge by the PTA. 


6th Grade Activities Chairs


Do you have a 6thgrader this year? The 6thGrade Activities co-chairs help our 6thgrade teachers with many of the traditional events such as Greek Festival, end of the year activities, and Culmination. The chairs may also assist with grade level fundraising and t-shirt sales at the beginning of the school year.


Teacher & Staff Appreciation


Katherine Crocs love their teachers, staff, and Principal! Every year we let them know by celebrating Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week and Principal’s Day. We are looking for a chair to plan and organize the events.

Junior Olympics &

Field Day Chairs

Junior Olympics is an annual event put on by the Simi Valley PTA/PTSA council. Students in 4th through 6th grade from all Simi schools participate in the annual athletic competition. Students start out by participating in Field Day, where they can try their hand at the various get-moving activities. A team of students is then selected to represent Katherine Elementary at the Junior Olympics event.

The Junior Olympics chair and co-chair oversee the running of Field Day, selection of the Student Team, arrange practices for all events, and coordinate all aspects of the team attending the Junior Olympics. A committee can be established to assist with many of the aspects, with a chair to oversee them. This is a fabulous volunteer opportunity for dads or family members who love to coach kids!
