The PTSA helps facilitate family involvement through its many programs and activities. It is our stated mission to work to enhance the learning environment of every student — a mission we take very seriously. Our programs fall into three main categories; curriculum/classroom support, community building and health and safety.

  • Classroom and curriculum support are vital to our mission.  To this end, PTSA programs support math, science, art, music, library, outdoor education, and educative assemblies as well as teacher stipends and staff appreciation events.
  • Research indicates that students do better in the classroom when there is a strong sense of school community.  To support this, the PTSA sponsors social and family events, such as Gingerbread Night, Bingo Night, and
    numerous before and after school enrichment programs to build a shared sense of belonging.
  • Students must feel safe and well in order to learn.  To promote health and safety, the PTSA provides health screenings,  parent education opportunities, emergency preparedness supplies, and numerous programs focused on the well-being of our students.

All of this is possible because of the incredible contributions of time and talent from staff, administration, and families like you. Whatever you have to contribute, the John Muir Elementary community needs your voice and participation.
