Parent Teacher Organization
Our PTO contributes a great deal to our children’s learning experience. We encourage you to get involved in our fund-raising programs and attend parent meetings. The PTO assists with field trips and supporting our special events such as the Christmas program, fund-raisers, special guest performances, book fair, and our school picnic.
Volunteers are needed in many areas for school events. Please watch your email for weekly MCMA Newsletters for scheduled events and updates or sign up for an event on the right. We appreciate your help!
Fees for trips and events are due at registration. A permission card must be on file in the school office and fees paid for your child to participate. We travel by walking, chartered bus, or parent vehicles.
Each child will need to wear a school T-shirt or sweatshirt on outside school field trips. T-Shirts may be ordered at the beginning of the year.
Parent volunteers are usually welcome to accompany us on field trips, though in some situations this may not be possible. Our insurance requires that we keep a copy of all volunteers’ drivers’ licenses in our files. Siblings are invited to in-house events only.
Each family is required to pay $25.00 in PTO dues once a year. An activity fee is also applied to each individual student: $55 for Early Childhood students and $80 for Elementary students, which helps to subsidize field trips, activities and special events. The field trip/activity fee charged to families does not cover the entire expense incurred.
