Facebook- We are on Facebook!
The MMS PTO now has a Facebook page as an additional means of communicating PTO sponsored events and sending reminders. This page does NOT take the place of the listserve or this PTO webpage. This is a private group so you will need to be approved by an administrator to join.
Click on the following link to join and invite other MMS parents who may be interested: MMS PTO.
Our major form of communication is via the Madeira Middle School listserve. This is how you can get the most up to date information on meetings, events, activities and volunteer needs. To join the Middle School list, send an email to MMSParentsfirstname.lastname@example.org. For complete instructions please see Madeira List Serves.
Have a burning question for the MMS PTO? If you have a question or need more information about any MMS PTO meeting, event or activity please contact us. Our email is email@example.com.
Want to get involved? Simply click on the link to the Committee Chairperson form to the right. You will find contact information for the various activities and events the MMS PTO sponsors throughout the year. Send an email to the chairperson for the committee you would like to get involved in. They would love the help!
Want to volunteer to work a MMS PTO Event? We will be using Volunteer Spot to coordinate our needs for volunteers at particular MMS PTO events and activities. As volunteer needs arise the MMS PTO will send out requests via Listserve with a link to the Volunteer Spot website. You can volunteer to help out at your convenience
