Volunteering at MPA

Thank you so much for supporting the students and staff of MPA by giving of your time. No matter where you help out, you make a difference. Our families' time, energy, gifts, and talents enable us to continue offering exceptional programming and help build the strong sense of community we have at MPA. Whether you have ten minutes or a couple of hours at a time, can come into the school or want to help from home, there is a volunteer opportunity for you! Per the MPA handbook we ask that each family volunteers 50 hours per year (25 hours for single parent households). Check out the list below for ways to help and how to get involved. Don't forget to record your hours!

If you will be volunteering within the school building or with the students you will need to check in at the front office when you arrive. You will need to bring a valid, state issued Driver's License or Picture ID. This year we will begin utilizing the Raptor System to process background checks each time you sign into the building. This is one way we ensure the safety of all our students, staff, and volunteers. We thank you in advance for supporting this process. Depending on the volunteer activity, you may also be asked to fill out a confidentiality form.

We have several opportunities to volunteer and we will be updating the list throughout the year so make sure to check back often! Please also watch for opportunities in school-wide and classroom newsletters. You can view the list of opportunities and contacts below as well as visiting our PTA website that lists many opportunities during the school year. Click here for more details.

Monetary Donations: If you are interested in making a monetary donation to MPA please visit Ms. Jen Webb, our financial manager, in the main office. Donations have been given in the past and it is much appreciated. Donations can be designated directly to classrooms or to MPA to use as needs arise. Some parents have chosen to give monetarily in lieu of volunteering. In these situations each volunteer hour is counted as $10 per donation. This can also be processed through our financial manager. If you choose this route, thank you, and please record your donation by filling out the 'volunteer hours' form.
