PTSA Fundraising

The PTSA works to facilitate communication between parents and the administration. Our funds are used for speakers, community-building activities such as the MLK Multicultural Night , and to help ensure that all students have access to school activities including field trips and the Junior Prom. We also help defray the cost of the Yearbook and assist with events such as Freshman Orientation, Senior Week activities and Homecoming Brunch.  

We ask you to support our fundraisers. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Karen Regan at krnregan@gmail.com or Chris Hofstedt at hofstedt@verizon.net.

Here are some of our fundraising activities this year: 

  • STOP & SHOP: You Shop, MHS Benefits. Registration is now open for the 2014-15 Stop & Shop A+ Bonus Bucks Program. Last school year, MHS earned more than $5,600 and the District earned almost $25,000…just by grocery shopping!  This year’s program starts on October 3rd, so please make sure you are registered.  PLEASE NOTE: registration requirements have changed this year: if you were registered for the A+ program last year and designated MHS, you don’t need to register again this year.  However, if you didn’t participate in the program last year or didn’t designate MHS as one of your two schools (or you just don’t remember what you did!), please go to www.stopandshop.com/aplus today and enter our school ID code, which is 09341, or search for MHS under Mamaroneck.  Encourage your neighbors, friends and family to register as well – even if they live in a different town or state they can still sign up to raise money for Mamaroneck!  Remember, you can support up to two different schools per card, and if there were any changes to your school selections, you must re-register.  Any questions, please email Ellen Howse at HowseBusiness@att.net
