Middle School Athletics (MSA)

For those of you who are new to our community – welcome! This blurb explains our after school sports program which can be confusing for our new parents.

Our after school sports program is not run by the school nor the school district, but instead is run by the City of Palo Alto. These activities are separate from and independent of the physical education (P.E.) classes that all Greene students take during school hours.

The City hopes to post available after school sports activities, also known as Middle School Athletics (MSA) in early August. MSA will be available to view on the City of Palo Alto’s Recreation page at: www.cityofpaloalto.org/enjoyonline. You must create an account with the City of Palo Alto in order to sign up your child/ren for MSA.

Registration for Greene Middle School fall offerings will begin tentatively on Tuesday, August 17th at 8:30 am and they will only be offering online registration.

Further information will be available once we get closer to the beginning of the school year. If you have any questions, please feel free contact their general email at: MSA@cityofpaloalto.org.

PHOTO DAYS

THURSDAY/AUG 12th or FRIDAY/AUG 13th

Every student will have their photo taken during their assigned P.E. class (either on Thursday or Friday) to have their school photo taken.

School photos will be used for their School ID. Students are required to wear their School ID on a color-coded lanyard.

Parents/Guardians may purchase School Photos as well. To order: https://my.lifetouch.com. Frank Greene Middle School

If your student did not attend a PAUSD school last year (Welcome!/Welcome Back!) – please consider setting up your account now. www.ParentSquare.com on your desktop, apps on your mobile device(s).

We are hoping to migrate/consolidate all school (administrative and teacher) and PTA communications through ParentSqaure to eliminate the need for parents to search through old emails to find information.
