Calling all Parents of JLS 6th Grade-Bound students!
Come volunteer with next year’s JLS PTA!
There are just as many opportunities to be a part of your child’s JLS experience as there were at Palo Verde, and the JLS PTA welcomes whatever level of time and talents you can contribute.
Volunteering on the PTA will accelerate your familiarity with the campus, staff, and fellow parents; there’s no better or faster way to become a part of the JLS community. And we have a lot of fun!

Help Kids in Grades K-4 with Reading or Math – You Could Change a Life
Please join other parents volunteering with All Students Matter in grades K-4 in east Menlo Park and East Palo Alto schools. You’ll work in the same classroom once a week, building a relationship with the teacher and students, and be able to see the progress achieved. The students are always eager to work with you and you’ll have real impact in a community where over 80% of students are performing below grade level in reading and math. Sign up now to start in September – we provide training and coordinate everything. To learn more or to sign up, please visit our web site at www.allstudentsmatter.org
