Want to support our school and the Fairmeadow PTA ?
Become a PTA member
There are numerous parent groups out there, but there is only one PTA. Connecting families and schools for 120 years, PTA is the largest children’s advocacy organization in the country. Here are just a few reasons to join PTA:
● Find out what’s happening in your school. ● The PTA offers a variety of programs and materials for students, parents, families, schools and communities. ● PTA gives you a “seat at the table” when important decisions are made about your child’s school. ● By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education. ● Becoming a PTA member does not mean that you automatically sign up to volunteer at your school, although we always welcome your help! ● Our members have helped advance local, state and national laws and policies to improve the education, health and safety of all children. ● PTA members enjoy exclusive member perks including discounts on school supplies, rental cars and wireless services click here for details.
Your local PTA dues stay with your school site, and a portion is sent up to support the work of your council PTA (if in council), district PTA, California State PTA and National PTA. Please check with your local PTA regarding annual membership dues.
PTA annual dues for each local PTA may differ from school to school, and help support valuable programs and services for student learning and family engagement. Many PTAs support academic enrichment programs, such as field trips or after-school art, drama, music, math and reading programs while other PTAs support events and activities that promote family engagement at school, to strengthen home and school relationships. Other PTAs support health programs, safety and physical education.

Donate to PiE
Palo Alto Partners in Education “PiE” raises money from parents and the community to provide all Palo Alto Unified School District students an educational experience beyond what is possible with public funding.
At elementary schools, PiE funds make sure that those extra pairs of hands (general classroom aides or instructional assistants) are in the classroom regularly to support individual learning and small group instruction. PiE also pays for counseling and improving school climate efforts for elementary schools.
Supplemental science instruction provided by donations to PiE helps elementary students discover, hands-on, how things work, while funding for technology helps kids acquire crucial technology skills. PiE funds part of the district traveling music team for all elementary schools to help students gain a well-rounded education. And PiE funds the Spectra Art and other arts program for the entire district, nurturing our budding artists and building confidence in kids across PAUSD.
