Dear MCS Families,
The MCS PTA would like to welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year. The PTA has an executive committee made up of five members: a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and appointed chair of standing committee. New this year, we are looking for grade representative whom will help us communicate with the parents and teachers of each grade more easily.
The purpose of the PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. What does that mean? We will work closely with teachers and staff as well as administration on issues that matter most and aim for a solution acceptable to everyone involved. It also means we will be sharing with our MCS families the many ways to voice your concerns in a meaningful and effective way; phoning administration, attending school or city council meetings, etc.
Our other goal is to provide families with fun and inexpensive (or FREE!) events. These events are a great place for families to gather, meet new people in the school community, and have fun together! We offer several different events throughout the year for families to enjoy. Watch out for more information on these events as well as ways you can volunteer to make them a success!
We have several different fundraisers, many of which are yearlong and require minimal work from our families. Monies raised through these fundraisers help provide busses for spring fieldtrips, planners and homework folders, playground upgrades, teacher requested classroom tools, and more. You can start now by clipping box top and returning them with your child and donating your returnable bottles and cans in our pre-marked Clynk bags.
We are excited for this new school year and all the possibilities!
Your MCS PTA Officers
Jessica Cormier, President
Sonja Wood, Vice President
Kate Stimmell, Secretary
