Parents & Community Together (PACT)
Creating opportunities and providing support for students and families
Similar to elementary school PTOs, PACT is a non-profit organization of parents, caregivers and staff working together to build a strong, inclusive community at Maple Grove Middle School.
Every MGMS parent, caregiver and staff member is a member of PACT and can choose in which ways and how much to participate.
PACT meetings are a good opportunity to hear updates from Principal Smith and learn about positive initiatives happening at MGMS.
During the 2023-2024 school year, PACT meetings will be held in the MGMS Media Center and/or via Google Meet.
Meetings will be held from 7:00-8:00 PM followed by a 30 minute work session (as needed) on the following Mondays. Come for any or all of the meeting and work session:
- Sept 18 (in person and online)
- Oct 16 (in person and online)
- Nov 13 (online only)
- Jan 22 (online only)
- Feb 26 (online only)
- April 15 (online only)
- May 20 (in person and online)
What does PACT do?
We lead and support initiatives that focus on the following areas:
1. Promote Purpose & Positive Change
2. Promote a Learning Environment that Celebrates Diversity and Inclusion
3. Promote Effective Communication between Administration and School Families
4. Engage our School Community
5. Fund Capital Improvement & Staff Development Needs
How can you get involved?
Time, donations, advocacy, and leadership are the primary requests, and they show up in a variety of ways.
