Please join M-A PTA in supporting our M-A community during COVID-19. As the crisis continues, many of the hardworking families in our community are having trouble meeting basic needs – food, household supplies, baby formula, diapers, and more.  While local organizations are struggling to meet the growing demand, we ask our M-A families to join together to help our student’s classmates and neighbors.

M-A PTA will purchase food and basic household supplies to be distributed directly to M-A families through M-A’s Student Support Center. Families can contact Lilly Quinonez at with their family’s needs. Please join in showing M-A pride and consider a donation that is meaningful for you and your family.
