First Avenue PTSA plans and supports special events and programs at First Avenue Middle School in Arcadia CA.


Our PTSA meets 4 times during the school year on the 1st Wednesday of the month @ 7:00 PM in October, December, March and May.


PTSA meetings are a great place to meet and connect with other parents and to support ongoing PTSA initiatives and priorities that benefit First Avenue.
