Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a strong and active parent-led organization at MCS that provides a wide variety of community-building and service efforts to improve the overall experience of families at our school. The PTO is made up of parents who serve as officers and chairpersons for PTO-sponsored events and staff members who regularly attend meetings.
The PTO serves the community in several ways: fundraising for specific projects and programs such as new outdoor learning environments, playground improvements, a new school bus, and a sprung floor for the gym. Fundraising is achieved through large, planned events like the annual auction as well as sponsored fundraising activities such as Innisbrook, Gifts N’ Things, book fairs, and more.
PTO also coordinates social and community-building events such as International Night, Parent/Teacher socials and our annual pancake breakfast. Community projects are an important service provided by the PTO. In previous years, the PTO has collected nutritious food to donate to a Durham county elementary school’s Backpack Program, that sent food home with needy children. They have also supported “Project Linus” by providing numerous blankets to children in need. Annually, the PTO has also delivered hundreds of books to “Book Harvest” collected during our annual book fair.
