Maloney PTA Association meeting 

Tuesday February 14th, 3:05pm (after Kindergarten lets out at 3pm)

Maloney Multipurpose Room

Maloney PTA members, please come and hear about our PTA's financial status, help approve new bylaws, vote on the nominations for Founder's Day volunteer honorees, and learn about Winter/Spring events at Maloney and different volunteer opportunities!  

Maloney PTA free Family Movie Night

Friday February 24th, 6:30 pm
Maloney Multipurpose Room

Storks will be shown at our next Family movie night!  Seating is on the Multipurpose room floor, so bring a blanket, pillows, beanbag chairs, portable chairs, or anything else you need to be comfortable (higher profile chairs will be seated off to the side). This is not a drop-off event, make sure there is an adult attending that is responsible for your student(s).

Maloney School Annual Spell-a-thon

Quizzes taken in class: January 30 to February 3

Scores/Pledge sheets returned to students by February 16

Last day to turn in pledges with pledge sheets:  March 10

All proceeds that are raised by the Spell-a-thon and submitted by the due date will go directly to Maloney School.  Maloney PTA operates the pledge drive, providing volunteers that organize the word and pledge sheets, grade quizzes, and do all the pledge money accounting, then grants all money raised back to each grade level and the school (if it is turned in by the due date).  

Of the pledge money raised by students in a particular grade level, half will be returned to the grade level subaccounts (used for educational activities decided upon by classroom teachers -- field trips, special curriculum-related assemblies, materials for curriculum projects that wouldn't be done otherwise, etc.).  The other half of the pledge is returned to the school to pay for software licensing fees related to Accelerated Reader tests and the STMath program (which typically are paid for out of the school's general fund). 

Maloney School events

We NEED Help!  
Please consider helping out!
Please add your light to ours -- together we can shine  for Maloney students!
To bring fun and enriching programs to our students and their families, we need volunteers that can organize events and volunteers that can lend a hand at events.  We also rely on volunteers to lead our PTA and support the hard work of Maloney staff and students to find the resources they need to thrive.

Spearhead a facilities' improvement project similar to our garden creation at Make a Difference day in 2015-16 -- work with the school administration to create the scope of the project and plan for financing with the PTA board;

Or, be a volunteer docent at Maloney for external enrichment programs:  Music For Minors II, Fine Arts Mini Experience

Where does the money go; how much money is coming in? As a PTA we love to answer this question, but are not allowed to post meeting minutes and detailed financial reports publicly.  Please come to an association meeting to see how we raise and allocate funds to benefit the school!!   To better serve our community, 5 meetings alternate between after-school and evening times.  We are required to have at least 11 members at these meetings to decide on programs and disburse money.
