PTO Meeting Rules of Engagement

We know that everyone’s time is precious, so we are committed to running an efficient and effective PTO meeting – they will not be more than an hour!!

Please send us items by September 20th you would like to discuss and we will put together an agenda with time slots for each item and share the agenda prior to the meeting. If we cannot completely cover a topic in the allotted time, we will do one of the following:

  • Agree to table the item until the next PTO meeting
  • Schedule a special meeting if the topic is critical
  • Assign a subcommittee to further investigate the topic and report back to the PTO
We thank you in advance for adhering to these guidelines and look forward to hearing about what you’d like to discuss!

Ways to Help Raise $$ for MCS


Each year, we do just one campaign-type of fundraiser through the SchoolStore. You can purchase gift cards for teachers and shop the bookstore to earn money for the school, but you can also support MCS when you shop at popular retailers!

Please take a look through the packet that will be coming home the week of September 16th to see how you can help… your kids can win some cool prizes, too!
