Membership Update

Welcome to the PTA! 
We are currently at roughly 200 family members and 60 faculty members of the PTA. Our goal is to surpass 400 members total so please JOIN TODAY! You can find the paperwork here.

If you've already joined, THANK YOU! We look forward to having you as a member! You should have received your membership card and our welcome note in your child's folder. It is worth your time to follow the instructions on the card and ACTIVATE it here to take advantage of some great benefits.

In fact, joining our PTA has MANY benefits! We just awarded GIFT CARDS to the Main Cup and GIFT CERTIFICATES for Spirit Wear purchases to FOUR lucky individuals who joined the PTA at our Open Houses in August. More prizes coming soon!

We also learned recently that we WON AN AWARD last year for an increase in membership over years past. Let's do it again! Even if you don't want to volunteer your TIME, simply join the PTA as a symbolic gesture of your support for your child's school experience. It's only $6 to join so do it today!

Student Directory Update
The new MPS/MES Student Directory is coming September 1st!!! This is a brand new effort sponsored and managed by the PTA but accessible to ALL students (even if you don't belong to the PTA).

EVERY single family should have received an email (from with a personalized link to your student directory information. Over 300 of you clicked on the link to confirm your details and decide which information you want included in the directory. THANK YOU!!!  

But...we still need to hear from nearly 400 of you. If you did not receive the email or need it sent again, please let me know. There are answers to common questions about the directory on the PTA blog here

This weekend you will receive another email granting you final access to the fully functioning directory!
