Many of our events are on hold but we will bring to you the events we are able. We can't wait to fully be back and celebrate our wonderful school community together!
The PTA organizes a variety of fundraising events to help pay for important school programs. These events have the added benefit of being a lot of fun for our families, bringing us together as a community.
Support our local restaurants and on designated days the school earns a percentage of the proceeds! Participating restaurants have been Redwood City BBQ, Crouching Tiger, Canyon Inn, Sancho's, Villa Lucia, Mountain Mike's Pizza, Chipotle and others! All of course do take-out too. Do you have a favorite restaurant you'd like us to contact? Email us at email@example.com.
