MDS Parent-Teacher Association

Welcome to our village!


With an engaged parent community and a caring, dedicated teaching staff, the MDS community is strengthened by its Parent-Teacher Association ("PTA"). There is no official registration to the PTA... all parents and teachers of the MDS community are automatically members of the PTA when they join our school! (Welcome!)


There are many opportunities, both big and very small, to support us by attending or volunteering for our fundraising, social and educational events.

Here are just some of the ways you can help the PTA as a member of the MDS community:

  • Bake for the PTA Bake Sale

  • Become a Class Liaison, and help the teachers and the school to communicate and engage everyone in activities and events

  • Help out on special projects for your classroom(s)... or just come in and read a book!

  • Organize and/or recruit volunteers for a PTA event

  • Come to a PTA-hosted talk or social

  • Buy a ticket to the MDS Gala to fund our Tuition Assistance program

  • Help us in fundraising efforts

  • Donate an item or your time to the MDS Annual Auction

  • Think of new ways to help the school, and share them with us

  • Send us your ideas, feedback and constructive criticism!

  • Join the PTA Executive Committee


PTA Executive Committee 


The MDS PTA Executive Committee ("Committee") is folded into the school by way of being an official committee of the Board of Directors. The Committee chair (president) of the PTA sits as a voting member of the Board of Directors. The Committee's mission is:

  • Community Building and Development

  • Teacher and Staff Support

  • Fundraising

  • Communication and Outreach


The Committee collects PTA dues via the tuition system (TADS) and is accountable for controls on collecting and spending money. 

Interested in learning more about how you can support the PTA?  Do you have ideas you want to share?  If so, please drop us a line!
