What is the PTSA?

The SMASH Parent Teacher Student Association (“PTSA”) is comprised of volunteer parents, teachers and students working together to expand children’s educational opportunities in an atmosphere of tolerance, trust and mutual understanding. PTSA activities include:


  1. Sponsoring events that encourage community involvement.

  2. Fundraising finance special programs, technology and classroom needs.

  3. Educating parents on various subject matters such as Internet safety.

  4. Promoting intercultural understanding through multi-cultural events and special programs.

  5. Fostering open communication among the entire SMASH community.


As a Parent, Teacher and Student Association, we embrace and adopt the California PTA's mission:


  • To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, places of worship, and throughout the community

  • To raise the standards of home life

  • To advocate for laws that further the education, physical and mental health, welfare, and safety of children and youth

  • To promote the collaboration and engagement of families and educators in the education of children and youth

  • To engage the public in united efforts to secure the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social well-being of all children and youth

  • To advocate for fiscal responsibility regarding public tax dollars in public education funding.

The SMASH PTSA meets once a month, alternating Wednesday morning and evening meetings; dates and times are on the SMASH calendar. Every member of the SMASH community can attend the meetings, and everyone is encouraged to become a member of the PTSA and donate to support the PTSA’s mission
