About the PTA
The PTA, or the Parent Teacher Association is a network of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of family engagement in schools. At Grand View, the PTA plans, operates and funds much of the school's programs. For instance, the PTA sponsors and organizes clubs, such as Run Club, plans fundraisers and community events, such as Movie Night and the Parent Party, and funds programs such as Young at Art and Science Lab. In every school endeavor, the Grand View PTA volunteers work together to enrich the lives of our students.
The PTA has an Executive Board which oversees the various committees, maintains a budget, and plans the PTA general meetings. If you wish to join the PTA, please click here.
PTA vs MBEF
The PTA is an association of parents and teacher volunteers. MBEF is an independent foundation. MBEF and PTAs are vital partners in supporting the success of MBUSD.
The Grand View PTA works together with MBEF to supplement the financial needs of operating our school. PTA dollars pay for equipment, resources and special experiences that are exclusive to Grand View. MBEF provides key enrichment programs and teachers throughout the entire district. This partnership is essential to maintaining the strength of our schools. With your support, PTA and MBEF provide the programs, experiences, and resources that our students need to be successful today and prepared for tomorrow. Please donate to both GVPTA and MBEF today!
