MPS PTO MISSION
The MPS PTO charter is two fold -- to enrich the educational experience of our children, and to bring our community together in positive and meaningful ways. Throughout the year, the PTO organizes events and fundraisers to provide funding for grade level assemblies & field trips, cultural arts enrichment activities, International Day, Visiting Poets and Authors, mini grants for staff professional development, student assignment pads for grades 2-5, support materials for students and teachers, and a variety of student, staff, and family events.
