The PTA supports Webster by providing programming, staff, and classroom supplies above and beyond what the district provides. Webster’s technology and arts programs, STEAM lab, and enrichment events are fully funded by the PTA. We raise these funds through parent donations, community sponsorships, and fundraising events hosted throughout the year.
SMMUSD pays 0% of the cost for these programs.
In previous years, the Webster PTA also provided 100% of the funding for our classroom aides. For the 2021-22 school year, classroom aides will be paid for by the district using funds from the Covid Relief Act.
The PTA is requesting a donation of $1,500 per student to support the above programs for the 2021-22 school year. 100% of your donations to our Whale Fund support Webster Elementary. We recognize that the past few years have been challenging for our community, and we encourage you to make a donation that is meaningful to your family. Our goal is 100% participation.

Proceeds from these joint fundraisers, such as the Holiday Boutique, are split equally between Webster and Malibu Elementary. Fundraising together allows our local vendors to support all Malibu students and promotes equity across our schools.
