Why Should I Join the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)?
By joining the Margaret Brent Elementary PTO, you are committing to the organization personally and ensuring you remain connected to your student's school experience and our staff with community events, fundraising opportunities and general membership meetings. Joining will give you a first hand perspective of our school and the programs we sponsor in support of our students and essential MBES staff.
Payable to MBES PTO?
You may be writing several checks now and throughout the year to MBES PTO for PTO sponsored items and events such as class t-shirts, the book fair, yearbooks, field trips and class projects. The PTO proudly sponsors these and other projects to relieve our teachers and staff from time consuming fund processing requirements. There are never any mark ups when you write a check to the PTO and PTO never profits when managing these projects.
How does PTO Fundraise?
With your support, our PTO raises funds and spends them to enhance the education of our children. Rather than sell goods, we have adjusted our model to raise funds through community based activities. Some of our most loved events include the MBES 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run, Boosterthon Fun Run, and Boxtops from General Mills!

How can I Help?
We are looking for families, individuals and companies to sponsor the Bobcat Cafe. The Bobcat Cafe is a coffee/tea/treat stand we stock for the teachers and staff at MBES. We ask people to volunteer to sponsor the cafe for the month and stock it with delicious goodies for the staff!
