PTA vs. School-Force

Sandpiper PTA

The PTA is proud to be able to support the Sandpiper community through select fundraising programs. If you wish to help with any committee, please contact the Committee Chair (please refer to the School Directory or call the front office for contact information).




School-Force is a volunteer-run non-profit 501c3 educational foundation committed to promoting educational excellence in the six schools of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District.

School-Force works with parents, the community, and the district to raise funds to help bridge the gap between state funding and educational excellence.

How is School-Force different than the Sandpiper PTA?

School-Force funds personnel such as music, library, science and reading specialists. The PTA funds programs such as assemblies, class materials and social events. Both organization function as two halfs of the "whole child".

School Force is the only fundraising organization that can fund personnel, such as teachers, librarians, aides and specialists.

PTA provides funds for volunteer-based programs, field trips, assemblies and school materials, such as books and teaching supplies.

By financially supporting both organizations, we can ensure our children receive the enriched, high-quality education we expect to provide to our children.
