    We support MTMS by funding classroom grants, field trips, library activities, and other school programs. We meet four times a year. We recruit volunteers to help with MTMS and PTA activities. We sponsor special programs during the year to strengthen the MTMS community. As a PTA, we work with local, state, and national organizations to advocate for children.

    Donation Drive

    We try not to bother with lots of fundraising programs. Instead, we seek to raise $3,000 in direct donations each year from members and the community. You can donate by writing a check to MTMS PTA (deliver it to the MTMS office) or through pps.SchoolPay.com, under the “Nonprofit Groups” tab.
