Each spring the Pattison PTA president appoints a Financial Reconciliation Committee who preforms a review of the PTA books of accounts and records that the treasurer keeps following the end of our fiscal year in June.
Pending board approval, the following members will be appointed to the Financial Reconciliation Committee: Lorie Hicks, Jen Roth and Jenny Swaney, with Courtney Synnott serving as an alternate should something prevent one of the other members from fulfilling their responsibilities later this summer.
A public meeting has been scheduled for Monday, May 2nd, 2016, at 1:00 PM in the Katy Independent School District Educational Support Complex, Room 1200 BCG located at 6301 South Stadium Lane, Katy, Texas regarding the ESEA Title I, Title II, Title III, IDEA B Special Education, High School Accelerated Instruction and Carl D.

to the winners of the Spring merchant rebates contests!
Ms. Eshbaugh’s class was the top earner with 278 Box Tops and Mrs. Cavanaugh’s class earned the #1 spot with 106 Labels for Education. Each student in both classes went home with a treat on April 15th!
The next contest is already underway! Remember to check expiration dates on the Box Tops and to include the UPC code on the Labels for Education. We will be discontinuing Labels for Education for next school year, so if you have been saving them- please send them in with this next collection!
Check out the Merchant Rebates Page (Fundraiser Tab) on our website for the latest counts by classroom for this school year to see how you class compares to the rest of the school. If you have misplaced your collection sheet, you can print again HERE.

5th GRADE PARENTS!
The 2016-17 MMJH PTA Officers would like to invite you to join them in serving on our PTA BOARD!
Our new board is excited to plan next year's programs and events and we are looking for some new faces and some new ideas! We welcome you to be engaged with our school and to stay connected to what's happening. So many parents "take a break" or "check out" after volunteering throughout elementary years. However, these few years are critical for giving our support to school community events as well as the wonderful staff of MMJH which are both so influential on our kiddos at this age. Several of us are working parents and we support each other by sharing tasks to meet our goals. Really, there's a niche for everyone no matter your schedule, background, or past volunteer experience! We sincerely appreciate your consideration!
