Fundraising for MPE

At MPE, we strive to help all our students reach their full potential.  In order to achieve this goal, we use money collected through donations, membership and fundraising events to buy supplies, equipment and the tools necessary to make learning both fun and informative. Every little bit helps and we can't do all this without your support.
