Did you know that change takes time? Do you have an elementary or middle school kid that will be coming to MHS in the future? Or do you have an MHS student? Do you have ideas and enthusiasm to make the High School a better place?
If you answer yes to any of these questions, then we need you!! If you have no
children at the middle or elementary school level, right now is the best time
to join! By the time your child comes to you will be happy with what we have in place. Currently, MHS PTSA is a very small group of people,
lots of them are moving on because their children are graduating this year.
This is a great time to come and forge a sense of community with us.
PTA, PTSA at the middle school and higher, has been around for a long time, about 10 years younger than Monrovia! It was founded in 1897 by Alice McLellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst. One of PTA's biggest achievements (in my opinion) was to eliminate child labor. In the past it was the norm to see only moms in the PTA, but that is no longer true. Today, we are proud to have dads involved, even as PTA presidents!
PTA involvement at the elementary level is massive! As we move up the grade levels, the involvement weans as our children become more independent and we believe the need is less, but it is not!! Our kids love to know that we care, even if
they don't want to see us on campus or tell them that we love them when we drop them you’re your involvement at the MHS PTSA could be as little as becoming a member for a nominal fee, but we prefer about 1 hour of your time a month to come to the meetings and let us know what you like and what you’d like to see change. If you want to do more and be part of a committee, that would be great!
This Thursday at the MHS graduation, MHS PTSA is going to be selling flowers, Subway meals, and Jamba Juice to fundraise and give back to our teachers and students. Come meet us!
MHS PTSA is ramping up for next year. We will have a meeting mid-summer to prepare us for next year. We need you!
