Annual Fund

BE A PART OF THE PARK!

Please donate to the MPHS Annual Fund. The MPHS PTSO aims to raise $200,000 to fund the PTSO operating budget for the 2021-2022 school year. The money isn’t extra, it is essential. We recognize there are many opportunities to give to individual MPHS organizations that serve student interest groups. Your donation to the Annual Fund supports our diverse student body, teachers and staff and provides the essential funding for targeted needs of our school not covered by CMS. So please give generously and include the Annual Fund in your giving at MPHS. All donations are 100% tax deductible. Thank you for your generosity!

PTSO Annual Fund Spending

This chart shows how funds were allocated, showing expenditure categories from last year’s budget.

Our goal is to continue strong support of our teachers and students while enhancing the learning environment, fostering a sense of family, and assisting administration in creating high academic achievement in all students. We continued to supplement and enhance MPHS by providing additional supplies and services to fill budgetary gaps that address needs, which are specific to our school or not covered by CMS. Specifically, we were able to provide support to 94 families in crisis due to Covid, or other circumstances. We were able to provide gift cards to purchase food and other necessary supplies, helped with rent deposits and hotel stays, provided bus passes, and helped provide clothing and school supplies to many of our MPHS students. In addition, our PTSO funds helped replace all of the auditorium seats, many of which were broken or unusable, and enhanced all of the lighting in the auditorium to provide a better experience for all of our events in this space. We could not have done this without the generous support of our families to the Annual Fund.
