General Membership Meeting Updates
9/16/2022 10:14 am
Thank you to everyone who showed up in person and virtually to our first General Membership Meeting. We hoped you were able to learn about what MPE PTA does and how you can get involved.
Here are links for all MPE families whether you were at the meeting or not.
Take our Feedback Survey - tell us your experience with programs like Yubbler; share your ideas, questions or concerns with us; tell us where you would like to see the PTA funds go.
Join a committee - you don't need experience and you don't need to commit without knowing what duties are involved. Meet some fellow parents and plan one of our programs/events - it can be a fun and new experience! Note: Mon. Sept. 19th in the Media Center - Book Fair Committee meets at 6:30pm; Odyssey of the Mind Info session at 7:00pm.
Make every little bit count - we raised $1,000 last year from our families linking grocery reward cards, Office Depot purchases and shopping on Amazon Smile instead of Amazon (just change the setting on your phone!). Please consider relinking your cards this year if you haven't already done so.
Finally, here is a copy of the handout from the meeting yesterday.Read More
