wishlist

As everyone knows, budgets are tight and our schools never have enough money to secure the items necessary to educate our children. Throughout the school year, each teacher is given the opportunity to submit wish list items to the PTA. Some are large, some are small, and for some, the cost is so high that the wish seems impossible to fulfill. PTA exists as an advocate in the education of our children and to that end, wish list items are purchased by the PTA with some of the money that we raise throughout the year. However, this list is ongoing and we don't have endless funds to grant all the wishes that we would like.

Our MES PTA Wish List program was started to help teachers get items for their classrooms, without having to purchase them out of their own pockets. These little things do not amount to a lot, but they help the teachers, and they also help the students. This is an ongoing project for the PTA: one that we feel is much appreciated by the teachers.

Here's how it works: MES staff will request items to be posted on the MES PTA Wish List and send them to the program administrator who will post items by classroom, when possible. Wish list requests might range from frames for art projects to desk chairs for teachers to a replacement sound system for the auditorium. Below is a list of current requests.

To donate an item, send your contact information and the item description through our Contact PTA on-line form or send word to us through your child's teacher, and we will contact you to coordinate the donation and provide a receipt for the donation.
