Who is the SOCES PTSA?: The SOCES PTSA is your onsite parent group at Sherman Oaks CES. We, the parents, teachers, and students, work together to make our school the best it can be for every child. We work cooperatively wit the school and the student body on fund-raising activities. We work hand in hand with the Parent Center to help grow community and coordinate volunteers. We encourage all parents to join us in speaking for every child with one voice. We invite you to join us and be a part of the success of our students.
