Let's Get to Fundraising Sign

You So Totally Rock Power Drive

We’re 55% to our goal of $15,000.  Any amount helps so even though the suggested donation is $50 per student, we realize that may be more than you are comfortable with giving.   $5, $10, and $25 donations help us reach our goal and are just as much appreciated.
The PTO’s annual budget depends on this $15,000 so we can pay for a field trip for every student, offer after school clubs, add resources to each classroom, the media center & maker space.  In addition to Muffins with Me mornings, classroom parties, 100 Book Club, and many other PTO sponsored programs that enrich your child’s educational experience.
When we meet our goal of $15,000 the kids will be rewarded with a school wide teachers vs. students kickball game! So please make your Power Drive donation today.
1.  Send a check via backpack mail in an envelope marked “Power Drive”
2.  Go to the MTE PTO website and click on the PayPal link
Thank you to the 135 families that have made a donation to make MTE the best educational experience for all of our kiddos!
