As we embark on a new school year, after experiencing such challenges, our community comes together to welcome back students and staff in a new year that will still look and feel different. Our commitment to our community remains as strong as ever. We plan on hosting as many in-person events and volunteer opportunities that are safe and follow district guidelines. We ask for your patience and voice to lend support where you can. Working together will ensure that we support our students and staff so they have a successful year.
Here are four ways you can get involved right now.
1- Join the PTA
The PTA has been hard at work thinking of creative ways to support our students and staff. We encourage you to become a PTA member to have a say in funding decisions and PTA programs for this year. You can now purchase your membership online in our new Memberhub Store.
Get your family registered on our new online communications platform, Memberhub. Detailed instructions on how to join can be found here. We will be moving all communications to Memberhub as soon as possible.
We have recruited grade-level representatives who will host virtual informal parent meetings once a month and be a point of contact for parents. Representatives will be reaching out using Memberhub, so make sure you are added to your student's grade-level hub.
We plan to host as many in-person fundraising events as we safely can this year, which will be limited. We need your support to meet our community's needs. If you are able, we encourage you to directly donate to our Markham High-Five fundraiser keeping in mind what you would normally contribute at our typical fundraising events.
You can also support Markham PTA linking your Fred Meyer, Bottle Drop, AmazonSmile, and Box Tops accounts. Instructions can be found here.
If you have any questions or would like to find out ways to become more involved, please contact a member of our PTA board directly or at the PTA’s general email address: MarkhamPTA@gmail.com
