Foothill High School

About the PTSA

Foothill's PTSAThe Foothill PTSA, an all-volunteer membership organization made up of parents, students and Foothill educators works on behalf of the entire Foothill community to advocate for academic excellence and enrichment of the educational experience of our students.

The Foothill PTSA supports and enhances the educational experiences of Foothill's students by:
  • Providing an organization through which the parents, school, and teacher can work cooperatively
  • Supporting the academic needs of the students
  • Encouraging school unity through parent, teacher and student participation
  • Supporting effective, school-wide communications
  • Providing financial support for programs not funded by the annual school budget
 

The Foothill PTSA is an affiliate of the National PTA.

As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, we rely on the generous donations of our members and the Foothill community. You can help by becoming a member of the PTSA and by making a donation to our Foothill Enrichment Fund. Throughout the year, we hope to provide more than $60,000 to Foothill, supporting vital services for every student. However, our reach extends far beyond the classroom.

We are your primary link between home and school, providing:
  • Electronic communications
  • Parent representation on school site and district councils
  • Volunteer support for registration, hospitality, senior ball, Grad Night and much more
