The JLS Parent Teacher Association (PTA) was organized as a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRC under a group ruling issued to the PTA Congress of Parents Teachers and Students, Inc.

The mission of the JLS PTA is to build community among parents, staff, and students, to provide support for the JLS educational environment, and to regularly demonstrate our appreciation for our staff and volunteers, enriching the JLS experience for all.

The PTA at JLS Middle School represents every part of our community – the students, teachers and staff, and the parents.  Our membership works hard on many fronts to ensure that all our students have the opportunity to be successful.  We meet monthly during the school year, advocate for our constituents, raise funds to support many projects, and invite all members of our community to take an active role in what we do.

Here is Palo Alto PTA’s  school funding slideshow. Our Palo Alto PTA Council made up this slide show in 2013 to show what the PTA funds, and where California schools get their money from.
