Despite our track record of excellence among Manhattan Beach schools, state funding remains at the bottom of the nation.
Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation (MBEF) are vital partners in ensuring the quality of education our students receive at Meadows Elementary. During this coming year, the Meadows PTA will fund important initiatives and programs at Meadows Elementary and MBEF will fund over $6.0 million in educators and programs district-wide – resources that are critical to our children and our schools.

Even in a distance learning model, Meadows PTA will still spend roughly $270 per student for things like:
- Online curriculum (Learning A-Z, BrainPop, Spelling City, Seesaw, Dojo, etc)
- Technology (chrome books, iPads, doc scanners, lighting, microphones, etc)
- Teacher supplies, school supplies and professional development
- Virtual assemblies, field trips and presentations
It is very important, even in a distance learning model, to continue to donate to Meadows PTA.
