One of the primary focuses of the 2021-2022 MMS HSA is organizing advocacy efforts to help improve the experience of our students.

Experience in the district shows us that the "squeaky wheel get the grease" so we are looking for families who are interested in helping our advocacy efforts or who have stories to share so that we can help improve the lives of all MMS students. Whether you want to write letters to district leaders, submit written comments or participate in Public Speaks, we need your voice. Recently we brought the district's attention to the broken elevator at MMS and we are optimistic that a repair will be happening very soon!

If you're interested and able to aid in our efforts, please share your contact information or story here: https://forms.gle/iSH8Bjb47GUHyBKUA
The MMS HSA raises funds through a No Frills fundraiser, a simple link that allows you to donate what you can afford. Without the support of families, we would not be able to provide the supplemental support to the students and staff.

Here are a few examples of how YOUR Support helps the MMS-HSA…
  • CULTURAL ARTS
  • STUDENT AGENDAS
  • FIELD TRIPS
  • SCHOLARSHIPS FOR STUDENTS
  • STAFF APPRECIATION BREAKFASTS & LUNCHES
  • SCHOOL BEAUTIFICATION
  • GRADE LEVEL SOCIALS
  • 8th GRADE ACTIVITIES
  • POETRY GRAMMYS
  • SUPPORT ADMINISTRATIVE INITIATIVES
