About the PTSA

Robinson’s Parent Teacher Student Association is You!

  • Parents, teachers, students and administrators who collectively provide our children with the best possible education in a safe and supportive learning environment.
  • State funding for Manhattan Beach students has decreased throughout the last decade by nearly $1,000. Robinson PTSA helps close the gap by providing our school with the funds to support programs, teaching and classroom supplies, technological and capital improvements.  PTSA funds are used to pay for site-specific “things” at our school whereas funds raised through MBEF are used to pay for “people” – faculty and staff – throughout our district5
  • Join our general PTSA meetings throughout the year: Sept 28, 2017, Jan 25, 2018, and April 26, 2018. All meetings will be held in the school hub. Watch the Tuesday Tide or calendar for meeting times and locations.
