PTA is looking for volunteers!

The PTA has planned many initiatives throughout the school year, and we can’t do our work without our wonderful volunteers. We are especially looking for volunteers to fill the following roles:

PTA Financial Secretary
Assists the PTA Treasurer, Joe Stern, with day-to-day bookkeeping. Pays bills and processes reimbursements.

After School Enrichment coordinator
Works with vendors and teachers to schedule after school enrichment classes (martial arts,  baking, chess, etc.) and coordinates enrollment.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, email our PTA president, Brett Goldstein, at 

Help us create a school directory!

Have you ever wanted to connect with other families for birthday parties, carpooling, playdates, questions about activities, etc? Us, too! We are putting together a private directory to help all our families do just that.

This directory will also allow your class parent to send out email messages from time to time to your entire class about important announcements. You’ll have the option to only share your contact information with your class parent and not in the full directory.

Fill out the form once per family here: bit.ly/MustangDir

Join the PTA today!

Membership is offered at a cost of $10 per person.  No one turned away due to lack of funds!  Sponsored (free!) memberships are available online and on the paper form, too.

Learn more about joining and see a list of how we use the funds we raise throughout the year.
