Help Raise the Roof at MHS

The “Raise the Roof” fundraising campaign supports the private funding of renovations to the guidance office lounge area. Initially kicked off with private contributions, this campaign is now open to friends and families who believe in converting the dated environment into a comfortable lounge for student meetings, studying, and relaxing. Renovations include new carpet, paint, furniture and more, creating a comfortable escape for students during their busy day. The PTO is seeking to raise a total of $12,000. 

We can only make this happen with your contributions! All donations are tax deductible and can be made online via Community Pass or by check. Click here for the donation form: http://tinyurl.com/RTR15-Form Questions? Contact Lauren Hollender at  lhollender1@verizon.net
