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.

Are you a long-term family at Maloney that likes to take on "big vision" projects?  Have you seen something at other schools that you think Maloney students should also have?  
Spearhead a facilities' improvement project similar to the creation of the student garden at Make a Difference day, 2015.  Your imagination and our fundraising capabilities are the only limiting factors in bringing new benefits and programs to Maloney students.  Work with the school administration to create the scope of the project and plan for financing with the PTA board.  Most other schools in the area have the things they do because of a dedicated set of parents that work to bring additional resources to the students.  Maloney is no different. 

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!  We are required to have at least 11 members at these meetings to decide on programs and disburse money.
