As a school that values its sense of community, we want everyone to be able to participate in the ways that are engaging and fulfilling for each person. Being involved is one of the things we value about our great group of parents. Here are just some of the ways you can participate as a member of the MDS community:

  • Become a class liaison, and help the teachers and the school to communicate and engage everyone in activities and events.
  • Chaperone a class trip
  • Help out on special projects for your classroom, or just come to class to read a book!
  • Join the Board of Directors and hone your leadership skills while strengthening MDS, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
  • Join a PTA or Board committee
  • Bake for the PTA Bake Sale, or help out at a PTA event
  • Come to a PTA-hosted parenting talk
  • Donate to our Tuition Assistance program or towards other fundraising efforts. You'll be helping the school support and fund teachers in their professional developement, and be true to its mission of promoting a community that is socioeconomically diverse.
  • Think of new ways to help the school!
  • Wear an MDS t-shirt around the neighborhood, or just tell a friend about MDS!
