Dear Memorial Drive Elementary Community,
Welcome to Memorial Drive Elementary! I am excited and honored to serve as the PTA President as I am a MDE Alumna myself! This community and school hold a big place in my heart and I look forward to serving this year!
The Parent Teacher Association is an organization committed to supporting our talented teachers, our dedicated school administration and our bright and energetic students. Members of the PTA include parents of MDE students, faculty members and professional staff. Thank you to all of the volunteers who have already committed to serving our school during the 2019-2020 school year! The time you serve and funding you provide are invaluable to our community and to our students. In the classrooms, in the library or at one of the many exciting events throughout the year, your service is what drives our success. The financial generosity of our donors allows us to better enhance our school by funding community events, curriculum support in our classrooms, educational enrichment for our students, additional staff to engage with all of our students and so much more! This funding helps the PTA provide what the district cannot. This is what makes our community so unique! We are very grateful for the support you give to MDE and can’t express enough how much you are appreciated.
There are many opportunities to be involved at MDE, whatever your talents, interests, or work and family schedules. As a volunteer you can become involved in a wide range of areas at any time in the year. Whether it is being a room parent, supporting Book Fair assisting during Cultural Arts Week, assisting with fundraising for the Annual Fund or the Auction in February, or helping with Fall Festival and other special programs, you are making a difference!
See 2019-2020 Board Members to meet the Executive Board Members and Committees for a list of the Committee Chairs leading efforts to manage the all of the amazing programs the PTA provides. A weekly E-News will be sent with the important information you need to know for the upcoming week. Register with the PTA to sign up for these emails. Visit the PTA Calendar for dates of events, meetings and volunteer opportunities. You can download this calendar and import this into your smart phone.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to Memorial Drive Elementary! Together we are building bright futures for our children. I look forward to working along side you all this year!
