Welcome to the 2022-23 Academic Year at Paly

The Palo Alto High School PTSA is the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). Paly PTSA works closely with the Paly administration to serve students and their families throughout the year by providing additional funding and encouraging parent volunteerism.

  1.  Join the Paly PTSA to support children and educators at Paly and the local, state, and national levels.

Paly PTSA is part of the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA). The National PTA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. The PTA tracks local, state, and national policies every day so we can advocate for what’s best for our students, families, and schools.

A $10 Paly PTSA membership benefits our school and the local, state, and national PTAs. Increased membership gives the PTA a stronger voice to speak for our schools. Membership is open to parents, teachers, and students. Learn more at  Paly PTSA memberships are tax deductible (TAX ID # 94-6184932). 

2.  Donate to the Paly PTSA Annual Appeal to support our Paly children and educators.

Your tax-deductible donation will support increased social and emotional student support, Viking Grants for new and innovative programs, parent education, staff appreciation, and community-building events.

PTSA suggests a donation of $275 per student. Our goal is to have 100% of Paly families contribute, so please donate. Any amount is appreciated.  Paly PTSA Annual Appeal donations are tax deductible (TAX ID # 94-6184932). 

PTSA Membership and Annual Appeal donation to PTSA help every student succeed.
