What does the PTA do? 

  • PTA is a partnership between parents and educators who strive to enhance student learning while enriching lives.

  • Recently we helped to pay for a new projector system in the Gym and in the Cafeteria too!

Where does my Membership money go?

  • Depending on the Membership level, anywhere from 66% - 88% of your membership fee goes to SEM.  The rest goes towards our PTA activites listed above and National dues.

What is SEM? 

  • The Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) is a unique learning opportunity at MPE.  Through the support of our PTA, MPE students are able to participate in daily hands-on Project Based Learning opportunities.  SEM dollars provide additional materials for labs, book clubs, experiments, guest speakers, texts for research groups, supplies for learning spaces, digital content, and creative opportunities to enhance learning. Approximately $30.00 is spent on each student each year to enrich learning through the Schoolwide Enrichment Model.  We are still trying to reach our goal of raising $30 for each child to cover the SEM (Schoolwide Enrichment) program for the year. Each membership sold contributes directly to SEM. We are now at 62% of our goal - help us reach 100%!
