Why join Ensign PTA?


PTA is the largest children’s advocacy group in the nation.  By joining you have a voice! Our PTA supports the Ensign community by planning and funding programs and activities that meet the specific needs of our school.  We support the educational efforts of our teachers in the classroom and work to increase parent involvement through communication, family events, parent education and other special projects throughout the school year.


Ensign PTA organizes one major fundraiser during the school year, our Turkey Trot.  All profits earned through this fundraiser stays at our school and directly goes towards funding the programs and services that our PTA provides.


Please join us in supporting ALL of our students! The Ensign PTA proudly supports the following programs and services: 

  • Science programs
  • Library services
  • Parent education
  • Wish Night
  • Staff appreciation
  • Eighth-grade Promotion
  • Newport Harbor High School scholarships
  • Health and safety
  • and other special projects!

Support is made possible through the fundraising activities such as the Turkey Trot, Ralph's program, monetary donations, and membership.


Membership envelopes will be sent home the first week of school and are currently available at the Ensign School office. Help support your child and the entire student body by sending in your membership envelope. Enclose a payment of $10.75 per person (students, parents, other family members, friends, and neighbors are all welcome to join!). Make checks payable to "Ensign PTA" or join online now!


Grant a Teacher's Wish

Donate to your student's classroom

  • Wish Night allows you the opportunity to contribute directly to your child's classroom.  You may purchase an item on the teacher's wish list or give a monetary contribution (no cash please) so that the teacher can purchase items.
  • In every classroom, the teachers will have outlined a "wish list" of items that they need to enhance their classroom for their students. 
  • Look for the envelope in each classroom where you may leave your donation. 
  • Make checks payable to Ensign PTA and include your teacher's name on the check. 
  • Wish night donations can be made up until March 31, 2018. 
  • 100% of your tax deductible donation will directly benefit your child's classroom. 
  • If you have any questions, please contact Jana Kalinowski at (949) 466-1498 or

Wish Night form (available to download).
