Fundraising efforts at ME greatly enhance the academic and social experience of our students. Through a variety of events, we are able to raise funds that support our enrichment program (Science, Music, and Digital Learning) and equip our teachers with the best educational tools and supplies. Annual ME events include the Back to School Fund Drive, Fall Festival, Ice Cream Social, Pancake Breakfast, Book Fair, Jog-a-thon, Spring Gala, Family Art Night, Dad’s Club Campout and Field Day, and more. These events support our children’s education and reinforce the already strong fabric of our ME community.
The PTA and EEF events mentioned above highlight our fundraising and volunteer committees in action. However, the day-to-day impact the organizations have at ME is more difficult to see. We want to take a moment to highlight SOME of the programs, supplies, and opportunities your financial contributions support.

The items listed above have a direct impact on your student’s education. Your financial support is vital for the continuation of these programs and opportunities. Parents like YOU are a vital asset to the betterment of our school and community. Without your support, our children would not have these wonderful opportunities.
In order for our PTA/EEF to continue to offer the same level of teacher and student support as in previous years, it will require a total budget of $150,000. Fundraising efforts for the 2018/19 school year will begin with our Pledge/Membership Drive on August 1. The goal of the pledge drive is $70,000. Donate to the Pledge/Membership Drive now.
