Please support our students as they get ready for John Muir Elementary's WALK-A-THON on Friday, October 27th! (Note the new date!)

Please write the NAME of the student(s) you are supporting and their grade (if you know it) in the comment section.
All funds are due by Friday November 3rd, so please donate TODAY! Help us meet our goal of $15,000.
The John Muir Elementary PTA is a volunteer group of parents, teachers, and staff who support and celebrate the success, diversity, well-being, and equitable opportunity of all students at John Muir Elementary. We serve as a liaison between families, and advocate for all students.
John Muir Elementary benefits from a rich culturally diverse student body, including dual language families that collectively speak more than ten languages! Approximately 68% of our student body is eligible for free and reduced meals. Our PTA funds directly support: * School supplies for all students (eliminating a major equity challenge for many of our families) * Student scholarships for field trips and overnight trips, including a 3-day trip to Islandwood * Supplemental enrichment programs and after-school tutoring * Facilitation of community conversations around race and social justice * Additional funding for music and arts programming * Tending an expansive classroom gardening program * Providing $10 for each student to purchase a book at the book fair * Financial support to individual teachers for specific projects
