What the PTA Supports
Like so many public schools, John Muir faces serious budget cuts due to decisions made at the state and local levels. The Muir PTA compensates by allocating resources – volunteer hours and donations – to help close funding gaps at our school. The PTA recognizes four important areas where we can help and they are: Learn, Explore, Celebrate and Advocate.
LEARN: Enrich classroom learning experiences through generous volunteer and financial support.
EXPLORE: Create opportunities for student discovery and exploration.
CELEBRATE: Celebrate and gather as a community.
ADVOCATE: Ensure a safe, fully funded learning environment for Muir students.
