The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) of the Mineral Wells Jr. High is a voluntary service organization managed by the parents and teachers of Mineral Wells ISD that works in support of the school. PTO is a great way to meet other parents and quickly become involved in your child’s school.
At a place like MWISD, where students, teachers, and administrators are always on the move, we feel it is particularly important to create a strong sense of community among our families. Your participation with PTO not only allows you to learn more about your child’s school environment, it gives you an immediate way to make new friends and learn about the different cultures represented at MWISD.
The PTO raises money each year to support a variety of projects and requests at MWJH. Our funding committee solicits request applications from teachers and student groups, reviews them, and allocates funds available.
Over the years, PTO fundraising has paid for outdoor seating and tables, a Ram Mural in the gym, testing snacks, a mascot costume for the MWJH, as well as other items.
PTO organizes many evening events throughout the year. These include concession stand at all home volleyball and basketball games, teacher potluck dinners and desserts, and many other Ram fundraisers. This event is both community-building and fundraising combined.
The PTO is made up of volunteer parents and teachers affiliated with the MWJH. Members of the PTO can support activities without becoming officers or attending meetings on a full-time basis. We always need parents to help as volunteers with specific activities or events throughout the year, such as our Book Fairs, concession stand, or volunteering at school. You can also join us simply by serving as a room parent, helping your child’s teacher as needed.
The Association is led by an elected committee that includes: President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Hospitality Representatives. Members of the Committee are elected at the first PTO meeting of every academic year. PTO meetings are held once a month and are open to all parents and teachers. We hope to see you there!
Mineral Wells Jr. High has an active parent-teacher organization which meets each month. Please take a few moments to read the minutes of the meetings to see all the good things the group is doing for our students. Even better, why not join the group which is open to all Mineral Wells Jr. High School parents?
Meeting information is posted on the Jr. High school web site tab each month.
