Support Your PTOs and the MPAEF

Join the Laurel PTO

Did you know that the four schools of the Menlo Park City School District are “community-funded”? About 88% of the funding for our schools comes from local sources: including property taxes, parcel taxes, and your support of two crucial organizations – the Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation (MPAEF) and each school’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).

Without your financial support of these organizations, our schools would not meet the high expectations of our community: classroom teachers to manage class size growth; music, art & library classes; performing art & elective opportunities in middle school; field trips & assemblies; grade-level & school-wide events for our kids and families; and much more.
