Dear MBMS Parents,
We know that we have had challenges over the past school year, but we are looking forward to a fresh start for the 2021/22 school year. Our PTA remains committed to supporting our Parents, Teachers and Students with various programs and initiatives to make this school year amazing!
Unfortunately, our state funding still remains at the bottom of the nation. Our PTA and the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation (MBEF) are vital partners in ensuring the quality of education our students receive at MBMS. During this coming year, the MBMS PTA will fund important initiatives and programs at MBMS and MBEF will fund over $6 million in educators and programs at districtwide – resources that are critical to our children and our schools.
Here are how your donations to both the PTA and MBEF reach your student(s) at MBMS:
Supporting MBMS PTA
helps pay for “Supplies and Activities”
pays for “People and Programs”
It is imperative that MBMS families donate to BOTH the PTA and MBEF to continue to support the things, people and programs that promote student learning and development. We understand that families are able to give at different levels – please be as generous as you can.
MANHATTAN BEACH MIDDLE SCHOOL PTA
The annual PTA membership fee is included at each donation level. This covers state, national, and local PTA dues, as well as allows access to our online school directory. Beyond the annual PTA membership fee, please consider donating at the Hang 10 or Tidal Wave levels.
HANG 10: $350 or more per MBMS student to PTA + $2,000 per student to MBEF
(Receive MBMS towel, car magnet & access to the online directory)
TIDAL WAVE: $175 or more per MBMS student to PTA + any donation to MBEF

MEMBER: Any donation amount is appreciated (min. $15 per parent)

MANHATTAN BEACH EDUCATION FOUNDATION
We ask every family to support MBEF, because every student benefits from the programs MBEF funds. The suggested donation is $2,000 per student – please give what you can. You can visit MBEF.org to donate online, schedule installments or pledge to give before June.
Thank you for your generosity and partnership. We could not accomplish what we do without you!
