The San Mateo Foster City PTA Council is is comprised of the 21 individual PTA units within our school district, and is part of the larger 17th District PTA of California.

Our mission is to positively impact the lives of all children and families.


The overall purpose of PTA is to MAKE EVERY CHILD’S POTENTIAL A REALITY by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

Despite the continued challenges of the 2021-22 school year, the SMFC PTA Council will continue to focus on SUPPORTING AND NURTURING LEADERS so they can MORE EFFECTIVELY AND EFFICIENTLY FACILITATE PROGRAMS that help to ENHANCE THE EXPERIENCES OF STUDENTS.

We will do this (virtually) through:

  • Peer-to-peer interactions

  • PTA-specific trainings

  • Information exchange

  • Community forums
