For the 2017-18 school  year, the PTA's fundraising focus is on improving/providing STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & math) resources for MPE. In addition to the regular PTA-supported initiatives (see below details), we aim to raise enough money to purchase additional computers for student use (approximate cost of one Chrome laptop cart: $10,000), plus STEAM resources/programs with the remaining funds. 

The PTA wants all of our fundraising initiatives to be fun, affordable, spirit-building events for all families (like our Spirit Night FUNdraisers & No-Cook Nights). Please see the FUNDRAISERS dropdown for all the current fundraisers.

Thank you for your support!


Here are some of the ways PTA funds/donations help support MPE:

  • Help fund educational tools and software programs for our classrooms

  • Subsidizes field trips and some after-school clubs

  • Sponsors informational assemblies and speakers 

  • Provides need-based scholarships for after-school activities​

  • Gives teacher grants to purchase classroom resources and supplies

  • Staff appreciation and school engagement events

  • Supports “Green” efforts at MPE which include Terracycling, recycling, composting and gardening

  • Helps subsidize facility repairs and enhancements when possible
