PTSA Fundraising

CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE PTSA, ORDER YOUR PRINTED DIRECTORY AND TO DONATE TO THE PTSA

Please give generously! Unlike many of the other schools in the district with a host of fundraising events, the MHS PTSA relies on your donations to support programs, events and grants.

The PTSA helps to organize programs that address issues important to parents as well as supporting programs and services that benefit students and teachers. For example, we provide an online school directory, sponsor visiting authors, support a school wide celebration of math on Pi Day, and donate books to the English department to create classroom libraries. We also help ensure all students have access to school activities by providing low cost SAT and ACT prep courses and donating funds to make things like the yearbook and Junior Prom more affordable. 

In addition to the above, the PTSA offers a grants program, which allows teachers to undertake projects that they would otherwise not be able to pursue—and to have the impact be felt within the school year. Examples of last year’s grants included subsidizing a paddle board program, providing funds for PACE guest speakers and providing for specialized equipment in Video, Culinary Arts, Photography and Robotics.
