Annual Appeal

Each year the PTA raises money to cover the school expenditures and programs not paid for by the Department of Education. Our major fundraiser each year is the Annual Appeal.

The MNS Annual Appeal provides funds for the majority of the PTA initiatives throughout the year that our school community has identified as a priority.
This year our goal is $375,000.  If everyone pitches in, we can get it done together.

This money helps pay for our school’s exceptional teaching assistant staff, music and arts programs, science supplies and much more. With these funds, the children get to experience unique learning opportunities. Read below about the PTA-funded initiatives.

Please help us reach our goal of 100% participation.
