Save the Date – Movie Night on 2/23

The PTA will host a movie night on Friday February 23rd. Please see this flyer for details.


PTA Nominating Committee Volunteers Needed

We need four members to be on our Nominating Committee to nominate a slate of candidates to be our 2018-2019 PTA Officers – President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. The committee needs to present the candidates at the April PTA meeting. Please email communications@maryvalepta.org if you want to volunteer or need additional information.


Goodbye Maryvale Carnival Chair and Volunteers Needed

We need a chairperson to lead the preparations for our Goodbye Maryvale Carnival. This will be a sendoff to our old building before we move to the holding school for two years. This is not intended as a fundraiser so logistics will be less complicated than that of the Fall Fling. Please email communications@maryvalepta.org if you want to volunteer or need additional information.
