WE NEED OFFICERS FOR THIS YEAR!

The MHS PTSA is looking for involved stakeholders to take up a leadership position for next year!  We have openings on the entire board and now is a wonderful time to get involved with your child’s school and PTSA!  Being an officer on the PTSA isn’t necessarily a huge time commitment, but it makes a world of difference in the lives of our kids!  We run several student and teacher recognition programs throughout the year, in addition to hosting bimonthly meetings on topics about our school community!  It’s a fun and supportive group, and we need you!

Last Event:  MHS Staff vs Manchester Police Department Charity Basketball Game

The MHS PTSA hosted a charity basketball game that pitted the MHS Staff versus the Manchester Police Department.  It was a close and exciting game, going into overtime, that saw the MHS Staff win 63-59.  Our friendly MPD team is looking forward to a rematch next year!

Manchester Staff versus the Manchester Police Department – smiles all around!

Parents, teachers, and school leaders working together

The MHS PTSA is a group of involved parents, teachers and other school stakeholders that work to provide programming and other support to school and its students. We are always on the lookout for more parents and teachers to join our group! We usually meet several times a year to plan out activities, programs, fundraisers, and other award programs to benefit our kids.

Student and Teacher Recognition Programs

We also have two ongoing projects – our MHS Essence Awards and our Teacher Mini-Grants – both work to celebrate the great teaching and learning that occurs at MHS each and every day! The Essence Awards (Essence Awards Form) recognizes students that typify scholarship and hard work with a recognition certificate and gift card award. The Teacher Mini-Grants (Teacher Mini-Grant Form) help to fund classroom supplies to allow teachers to create wonderful new lessons and activities for our students.
