VP of Fundraising Justin Hubbarth
The MES PTA traditionally raises funds for a variety of student enrichment (cultural arts performances, visiting authors & artists, and a Grants program), teacher support (classroom supplies, funding for specials), media center upgrades and technology enhancements including robotics.
While this is a different kind of year for our school, the PTA is committed to continued fundraising efforts in support of our Morningside students and the larger APS community. Some of the annual fundraising events that we look forward to will be adapted to fit our current virtual learning situation. Please stay tuned for information on our largest annual fundraiser, Boosterthon Dolphin Dash and our Spring Event.
Current Fundraising Initiatives:
As we embark on the new 2022/23 school year, we are grateful for our Dolphin Donors, local businesses who generously support the PTA. This support helps us create an enriching learning environment for students, staff, and families. The Dolphin Donor sponsorship program provides exclusive advertising opportunities only to our Dolphin Donors, including prominent signage on both the MES@Inman and MES Rock Springs Road campuses, Facebook posts, booths at school events, and more!
For the 2022/23 school year, we are offering multiple sponsorship levels with various year-round benefits to our Business Dolphin Donors. If you are interested in becoming a Dolphin Donor or would like to learn more about the program, please contact us at email@example.com.
NEW for the 2022/23 school year! We have new spirit wear designs and lots of new merchandise (t-shirts, hoodies, gym shorts, sweatpants, and more) to show your MES pride! Our new MES Spirit Wear Website will be open again soon for the next round of orders so please check back often for upcoming sale dates.
With our new online store front opening, there is now an option to have orders shipped directly to your home! The most recent round of orders will be sent to either your home or the school approximately 20 days after the order window closed on August 8th.
Every year, the MES PTA partners with various local restaurants through a popular Dine Out program. When dining at the restaurant, the family should let the waiter know that they are with MES and at the end of the week, the restaurant will provide a contribution to the school based on their sales. Our next Dine Out event will be announced soon, so please check back often for upcoming events. Please contact Dine Out Chair Sarah Korth if you have any questions about the program.
With the generosity of MES families and local businesses, the MES PTA was able to fund the following in the 2020-2021 school year:
- Dolphin Kits for at-home learning
- COVID readiness supplies for returning to school such as:
- Seat Sacks for classrooms
- Water bottle fillers
- Picnic tables for outdoor seating
- Media Center books and supplies
- Teacher supplies and PPE for teachers and staff
- Signage and materials to help make the Inman campus our new home
