MPA PTA

Montessori Peaks Academy PTA is a 501 (c)(3) organization consisting of MPA staff and parents who care about the future of our school and the success of our children. The current PTA officers are Elizabeth Lewis (President), Lindsay Gallegos (Vice President), Hannah Hopkins (Treasurer), and Laura Fleenor (Secretary).

The PTA facilitates fundraisers for the benefit of our school, sponsors community events, and funds programs to enhance our children’s education.

Fundraising:

The PTA has two types of fundraisers, passive and volunteer driven. Through such programs as BoxTops for Education, Amazon Smile, and King Sooper Gift Cards family members and staff generate funds for our school simply by shopping. Dewey’s Dash and the Spring Auction are volunteer driven fundraisers. By utilizing volunteers for these fundraisers the PTA is able to retain nearly all of the generated funds for the benefit of our school and children. The success of these fundraisers depends of the level of volunteer support they receive.

Community Events:

The PTA sponsors such events as the Back to School BBQ, Trunk or Treat, and the Spring Socials for the elementary students. If you have a suggestion for a different or additional community event please contact Elizabeth Lewis at: elizabethlewis0510@yahoo.com.

Programs:

The PTA funds programs such as Outdoor Education, First Lego League, and Jr. First Lego League. Outdoor Education offers our students experiential learning through nature and an outdoor environment. First Lego League challenges our older students to think like scientists and engineers while Jr. First Lego League engages our younger students and introduces them to STEM concepts using LEGO elements.

If you are interested in joining the PTA or have questions about what it means to be a member please contact Justin Grant, PTA Membership Coordinator, at: justingrantptadad@gmail.com.
