The M-A PTA relies on the help of our wonderful parent community to organize and execute our events and programs. There are a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. We have events and programs that require just a few hours as well as committee chairs. Don't have a lot of time but want to volunteer? Help at the library, proctor an AP test, collect CSF applications or help pack food bags for canned food distribution. There are many ways to volunteer your time that makes a difference. 

Specific details about each program can be found by contacting the Committee Chair.

If you are interested in being a committee chair take a look at our committeee chair role description on our site. Let us know your interested by using the volunteer link below.

The M-A PTA spends over $130,000 per year to provide Menlo Atherton High School with vital materials and programs.We suggest $250 per student for families who are able to make this donation. We want you, and all M-A parents and teachers to join this unique and diverse group of advocates for our students. We have memberships available starting at the $5 level and we welcome everyone, regardless of financial commitment. Donations over $5 are welcomed and encouraged as they help fund some amazing social-emotional and educational programs. We encourage those who can to include an extra contribution, to help sponsor the cost of additional students. With even greater budget cuts mandated for the 2021-2022 school year, your donation to the PTA is more crucial than ever. Your tax-deductible membership fee and contribution, in any amount, are greatly appreciated.
