Welcome Back Field Families

We will be starting the year with Distance Learning. MPS has  plans for Distance Learning to be more structured and to offer more support to students.  The Field PTA is here to help support the Field Community as we navigate an uncertain school year!

Our Field PTA is proud of the generosity and support our Field families offer each other and our community.  Below are a few of the ways Field PTA and families share with our community:

 

Donations

Your generous donations allowed Field PTA to fund more than $20,000 in school expenses last year. The money was used for things such as school supplies, art supplies, sheet music for band and strings, sports equipment for PE class, field trips, and Project Success. We will continue to fund these this year, thanks to your support!

 

Philanthropy

The Field PTA will be doing things such as Holiday Helpers and Hygiene Drives to support our fellow Field Families in need. 

 

Goals

The Field PTA has pledged to support the Field community - students, teachers and families by advocating for Field with the District and helping to make Field's last year as a middle school the best it can be. We welcome your ideas to help us create a legacy year for the students and families.

 

Fundraising

Fundraising will look a little different at Field this year. Due to the passing of the CDD, Field will transition to an Upper Elementary School starting 2021-2022.  This change will bring in an entirely new group of students and families, as many of you will head to new neighborhood schools.   Therefore, the Field PTA Board will not be asking for as many donations this upcoming school year. We do have money in our budget to cover many school expenses for the 2020-2021 school year.  We will continue to participate in smaller fundraising events, such as Scholastic Book Fairs, Box Tops, Spirit Wear, and Amazon Smiles.  If you have students who will be attending Field as a 3rd through 5th grader in coming years, we encourage you to support extra fundraising efforts taken by the Hale PTA this year.
