About PTSA

What is the PTSA?

Robinson’s Parent Teacher Student Association is You!

  • Parents, teachers, students and administrators who collectively PTSA Robinson Elementary Dolphin Logo
    provide our children with the best possible education in a safe and supportive learning environment.
  • Robinson PTSA provides our school with the finances & equipment to sustain the basic operation of the school, cultural experiences and academic enhancements.
  • PTSA funds site-specific needs on our campus such as technology products (smart boards, laptops, 1-to-1 iPad ratio for grades 3-5), campus enrichment (playground equipment, sunshades, etc), cultural arts residencies (Young at Art, Meet the Masters, Cultural Assemblies, etc), school & office supplies.
  • State funding for Manhattan Beach students has decreased throughout the last decade by nearly $1,000. Robinson PTSA helps close the gap by providing our school with the funds to support programs, teaching and classroom supplies, technological and capital improvements.  PTSA funds are used to pay for site-specific “things” at our school whereas funds raised through MBEF are used to pay for “people” – faculty and staff – throughout our district.
Who is the Executive Board?
  • The Executive Board is comprised of Robinson parents who are elected to serve a two-year term. The nomination process for the selection of the Board begins in February. If you are interested in joining, please contact the Parliamentarian. 
  • Join our general PTSA meetings throughout the year:  Watch the Weekly Wave or calendar for meeting dates and locations.
