    Fundraising

    Because of MLC's mission of experiential learning, field trips and activities off-site are a major component of what makes MLC great. The majority of the PTSA budget goes towards scholarships to students making sure that all of the children in our community are able to participate--regardless of their family's ability to pay.

    MLC Champion

    If each MLC student's family donated $300, we could pay for all of the PTSA goals. Think of how awesome it would be: no more big asks, fundraising requests, and checks to bring to school.

    Prefer to pay monthly? It's only $25/month! We'll even set up an auto-pay for you. Click here.

    MLC Champions receive four tickets to all PTSA-sponsored events, an MLC T-shirt and a deep appreciation of the entire community.

     

    Other Fundraising:

    • Box Tops for Kids: Drop your box tops in collections boxes outside K-3 classrooms and in the front office.
    • Amazon Smile: Be sure to indicate MLC PTSA as the recipient of the Smile funds.
