Balance for overnight trips is due. Parents of students who are going on overnight trips should have received emails from the trip leader with your balance information. You may pay by check payable to Portola MPA, or make payment via PayPal. Please provide student name and the name of trip on your check or "special instructions to seller" (for PayPal).
The Magnet Parents Association (MPA), in conjunction with our teachers, would like to offer some exciting after-school activities for Magnet students. Please turn in this registration form by Friday, September 15th to your Homeroom teacher. Payment is not due until after we confirm that your child is registered. See Enrichments page for more details.
We had a great turn out at our first Portola MPA Parent Meeting. Here is the PowerPoint deck summary from the meeting that took place August 30 2017, 7 PM. The MPA Board looks forward to partnering with all the parents and staff to make great strides in enriching the learning experience of our students. Please visit our Volunteer page and Financial Support page, as we need everyone's participation to make this happen.
To kick off the coming school year, we’ve arranged for a 6th grade bowling mixer at neighboring Corbin Bowl right after orientation on August 7th- that way you can get everything squared away at Portola Middle School, then come over and get to know each other before school starts – the parents can mingle while kids bowl. Some of the representatives for the Portola Magnet Parents Association will be there as well to welcome you to the school and answer any questions you may have.
Corbin Bowl has given us a reduced fee of only $14 per person, which includes shoes, two hours of bowling time and a pizza with drink lunch.

located at 19616 Ventura Blvd, Tarzana, CA 91356
Date: Monday, August 7th
