WHAT DOES THE MPES PTO DO?

Our Executive Board plans and organizes all of these activities with the help of our parent and teacher volunteers!

ENRICHMENT CLASSES

Each Fall & Spring, the PTO offers Enrichment classes before and after school. Classes provide the students an opportunity to socialize with friends while doing a fun activity they enjoy!

BOOK FAIR

The PTO brings the Scholastic Book Fair to school twice a year! Don't miss our Donuts Day in the Fall or our BUY ONE GET ONE fair in the spring!

SCHOOL STORE

Students may visit the school store once a month after they've finished their lunch. All items are less than $1. 

School store is also a great way to volunteer! Parents are needed to help students shop while they learn about prices and how to spend. Check our SignUp Genius page sign up.

YEARBOOK

The school yearbook is produced by the PTO Yearbook Adviser along with help from our 4th Grade Yearbook Club. 

The PTO purchases Yearbooks for every 4th Grader as a gift.

SPIRIT WEAR

Show your school spirit with cool MPES gear! Apparel is available in both youth and adult sizes and our flannel pajama pants are super comfy!

FUN FAMILY NIGHTS!

The Welcome Back Social and Family Fun Night are events for the entire family held in the evening.

SNOWFLAKE DANCE

The Snowflake Dance is a fun evening activity for all MPES students K-4. From Red Carpet Photos, to refreshments, and a DJ Dance Party, the students have a blast!

CIRCUS WEEK!

Each year the PTO sponsors National Circus Project week where all students K-4 get to test their hand at circus tricks like juggling, plate spinning, and the diablo, just to name a few!

The week ends with the 4th Grade Circus Performance on Friday night!

DONATIONS

The PTO fundraises to provide all of its programs in addition to providing funding for special school supplies or programs not included in the school budget. In Spring of 2018, the PTO provided the funding for the Greg Tang Math Program held at Matthew Paterson.

Every Matthew Paterson parent is a member of the MPES PTO.

WHICH SPIRIT STICKS ARE YOUR FAVORITE?

WHAT ARE SPIRIT STICKS?

Just one of the really cool ways you can reward your student for a job well done. Or maybe they prefer to purchase their own at our school store! Either way, they're so much fun to collect!

Kindergarteners will all receive an MPES Spirit Ring to start their collection. If you are new to MPES in another grade, let us know and we'll make sure you receive one too!
