Montera Annual Fund Progress Bar

    Invest in Your Children — Invest in Montera

    The Montera Parent-Teacher Organization funds school needs big and small not covered by the school budget — from essential things like books and classroom supplies to the extras that enrich students' lives, like field trips and music programs.  We can't do it without you —your tax-deductible donation ensures that our kids keep on getting the things they need to thrive. Your donation helps sustain our success, including our recognition as a California Distinguished School.


    The school budget does not cover many of Montera's vital needs. The PTO does — with your support. Here’s a sampling of the essential programs, activities and clubs the PTO funds or supports:


    • Teacher stipends (given to all Montera teachers to cover necessary classroom expenses)
    • Teacher and staff mini-grants for events and supplies
    • Computers and technology equipment 
    • Librarian and books
    • Campus grounds and sports field improvements
    • Sports — coordinator, team fees, and equipment
    • Music program (purchasing and repairing instruments)
    • Student scholarships to participate in fee-based programs
    • Organizational Planners for every student
    • Field trips
    • And more!

    100% Participation Goal

    We recognize that every family has different resources. We welcome your 100% tax-deductible contribution at absolutely any level - every dollar counts.  If you can't donate money, please consider volunteering your time to help with a fundraiser like the school auction, or participating in a no-cost-to-you fundraising program like SHARES.
