PAVE: Parent Alliance for Vistamar Education

PAVE brings together all Vistamar families in support of our school. All parents and guardians of Vistamar students are automatically members of PAVE. Membership is free, so join PAVE meetings at anytime and let your voice be heard.
In addition, a group of volunteer parents known as PAVE Council helps coordinate parent interests, concerns, and activities. Led by a president, the council members also include a secretary, grade level representatives, and event chairs.
For more information, or to get involved, please contact any PAVE Council member. You can also fill out and submit the volunteer interest form to Assistant Director of Development Carrin Torres at 310-643-7377 or via e-mail at Also, be sure to check Vistamar's weekly e-newsletter for volunteer information and additional PAVE information.
