Our tuition rates and subsidies from our churches and the Rocky Mountain Conference don’t fully cover MHA’s education costs. We rely on charitable contributions and gifts-in-kind from parent partners to remain financially healthy. Upon acceptance to MHA, your family will be asked to pledge to one (or both) of the following:
- Serve in our Parent Volunteer program between July 1 and June 30 for 20 hours per family
- $200 per family charitable gift. Monetary donations are receipted and tax deductible. MHA is a 501(c)3 organization.
If you are volunteering in any capacity at MHA, we need you to complete the Sterling Volunteers background check. Click on the button below or call our office at 303.744.1069 for more information.
The room parent solicits donations from parents for classroom parties and events based on the needs of the class, collects money for teacher gifts during holidays and Teacher Appreciation Week in May, organizes classroom volunteers for events or enrichment and other tasks as decided by the teacher. Room parents are integral to the teacher’s classroom plan for the school year.
Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
The Parent Teacher Organization is a school based group with a mission to make MHA better place for our students to learn. Parents work together with the teachers to volunteer in classes, raise money for the school, and generally support our school-wide efforts. The PTO aids in teachers and parents coming together for the benefit of students.
Besides being a part of our PTO group, there are so many other ways you can volunteer at MHA. These opportunities vary depending on the event and can include:
- getting donations, marking laps, meal prep, and serving, handing out giveaways, setting up and taking down
- Decorating, manning the booth during the event, collecting tickets, clean-up
Classroom Parties, Guest Speaker & Classroom Support
- Providing food, decorating, getting teacher-requested supplies, giving a demonstration or sharing about your real-world experiences, chaperoning events, and providing classroom support
- Helping decorate for various holidays, creating an atmosphere of school spirit
- Help passing out water, run event stations, donate supplies
Teacher Appreciation & Snacks
- Bring in snacks for the teachers and lend a head during Teacher Appreciation Week (1st week in May)
If you would like to volunteer – or maybe help out with a specific event – please reach out to Camie Freund, MHA’s PTO leader, at [email protected].
