Frequently asked questions about MHS PTSA.
-I have heard they only provide for seniors, so why should I join?
- What does the MHS PTSA do?
-What is Gold Rush? I am a Freshman/Freshman Parent and what is that?
The rumors that the MHS PTSA only provides for seniors are simply not true. Yes PTSA does do a lot for seniors and Gold Rush, they have worked hard for 15 years and we want them to have amazing memories for a lifetime of their final HS year but that is only a fraction of what we do. We also provide all of the following. And please remember all of us will have a senior some day.
-Put It Down Save A Life- A program designed specifically to create awareness among students to the dangers of alcohol and drugs and drinking and driving. This has been a highly successful program and has been hugely popular with the community and students.
-Staff Appreciation-We take great pride of taking care of our staff and teachers here at MHS they spend an enormous amount of time with our students not only during class time but at after school events as well. They show great dedication to our students. We provide a monthly snack cart for our Staff, provide 3 to 4 luncheons a year, and have special treat days, for example a smoothie day for our staff.
-Mini Grants for Teachers- Every year teachers can apply for mini grants provided by the PTSA. These are open to all teachers. These have been very popular with the staff.
-MISD Clothes Closet-Not everyone realizes that our district has an MISD clothes closet run entirely by the MISD PTSA. All of the schools in the district have a month in which they provide donations to the clothes closet and provide workers for the clothes closet. This is a fabulous program to help those children and parents in our district that may need a helping hand on occasion.
-Student Organization Help as Needed-PTSA also helps our student organizations on campus as needed. We have helped with Senior Sunrise, Mansfield Speaks, STUCO Events, and various other campus activities.
-Gold Rush-Gold Rush is our MHS after prom party tradition held here at the high school. The High School is transformed into a magical place almost unrecognizable as a school on the inside where the seniors and their dates can have an awesome place to go and have a great time in a DRUG FREE, ALCOHOL FREE, SAFE ENVIRONMENT until the next morning. Gold Rush features an all night lock-in with a casino, games, music, food, prizes, inflatables, scholarship drawings and much more!
As you can see the PTSA takes our job seriously and we seriously care about each and every student and each and every staff and Teacher. Membership in PTSA is only $12 but it Gives back so much in return. Thank you for giving.
