EMPOWER THE CHEETAH FALL FUNDRAISER
Please consider making a donation to the Empower the Cheetah fundraiser sponsored by the MP PTSA. We have raised $2,000 and our goal is $10,000. Without ample funds, the PTSA will not be able to support the many programs currently available. 100% of your donation goes towards all MP students. Check out the donation thermometer in the lobby to see how much MP families have donated. Need a pledge form? Check out www.mpptsa.org or check out the Meridian Park PTSA Facebook page. Thanks for your support!
