Please consider making a donation to the Empower the Cheetah fundraiser sponsored by the MP PTSA. Pledge forms went home two weeks ago and can also be found on the mpptsa.org website and Facebook page. 100% of your donation goes towards all MP students. Funds raised will pay for free all school events (Fall Harvest & Cultural Fest, Movie Night, Spring Family Fun Night, etc…), scholarships for before/after school enrichment classes, teacher grants, and so much more. Check out the donation thermometer in the lobby to see how much MP families have donated. Thanks for your support!
