Marston Middle School PTSA welcomes all students and parents to the 2023-2024 school year!

The Marston Middle School PTSA is a 501(c)(3) corporation overseen by the State of California PTA and National PTA and governed by the laws of the state of California. Our efforts are solely focused on providing enrichment and support to the Marston community of students and staff. We provide programs for all Mariners by raising funds through our Membership Drive, Fall Fundraiser and various Dining Out opportunities throughout the year.

What is PTSA?

PTSA stands for Parent Teacher Student Association. PTSA is a volunteer association (no payment for hours volunteered) where parents, educators, students and other interested community members come together to enhance the educational experience for all students. Anyone can become a member of the Marston PTSA.

What does it mean to “join PTSA”?

Joining the Marston PTSA consists of paying a membership fee of $10.00 per member annually. Membership starts on July 1st and ends on June 30th of the following year. There is an overlap from July to October, where members can still be “active” so business can be conducted throughout the summer months and at the beginning of the school year.

Do I have to volunteer if I join the Marston PTSA?

Joining the Marston PTSA does NOT mean you are required to volunteer any time for our events and/or fundraising. We appreciate any assistance you may offer to make the programs successful, however you are absolutely NOT required to volunteer. 

What does the Marston Middle School PTSA do?

Made up of 14 volunteer positions, our PTSA serves as a communication link between the community of parents/students and the school. We pay for enrichment programs, award ceremonies and many other items that the school budget does not have funds for. We also help by volunteering at school events like the Book Fair and various award ceremonies.
