As we embark on this unprecedented school year, we know that back to school looks and feels different. But our commitment to our community remains as strong as ever. While we won't be hosting the traditional events and volunteering opportunities will be different, we need your voice and support more than ever! If we work together, we can support our students and staff to ensure that they have a successful year.
Here are three 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.
If you haven't done so please get your family registered in our new 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.
Due to public health restrictions, we will not be able to host in-person fundraising events this year. However, we still 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
