Dear Parents,

On behalf of the Mount Tamalpais School Parent Association and the Executive Committee, welcome to the upcoming 2016-2017 school year. The MTS Parent Association is the volunteer arm of the school and exists to encourage and promote positive interaction within the school, the parent body and the community at large. All MTS parents are members of the Parent Association. MTS is built on the strengths of the people associated with it, and we look forward to finding the right volunteer opportunity for you.

Please follow the SignUpGenius link below to read about all of our volunteer opportunities and sign up. We have many events and committees, so there is definitely an outlet for your interests and abilities. Your volunteer work is what makes the school's programs, fundraising, cultural and community events happen. It is a wonderful way to get to know and build lasting friendships with members of the broader school community.

There are many school events on the calendar this fall. An ice cream social, a back to school picnic, parent coffees and neighborhood gatherings kick off the new school year. These will be followed by open houses for each grade, a kindergarten and new parent orientation, and our traditional Grandparents’ Tea, which will take place September 23, 2016. We look forward to seeing you at these gatherings and to working with all of you this year.


The purpose of the MTS Parent Association is to promote communication and participation among the parents and guardians, the school, the community, and alumni families to enrich the experience children and families have at MTS.

The Parent Association will produce an annual fundraising benefit, as well as organize a wide range of activities and programs for the cultivation and growth of the school community. Every parent and guardian is part of the Parent Association; we encourage all to participate in school activities and to further the mission of MTS. 

Read in depth descriptions of the many committees that the Parent Association is responsible for organizing and sign up to receive more information about the committees that interest you.
To explore the many ways to get involved please look on Sign Up Genius.

The Parent Association is led by a dedicated team of volunteers who enjoy working in a variety of roles at MTS, with fun and talented parents. We have made some of our best friends through volunteering and look forward to working with you.
