Support Miner Mutual Aid: We Are Stronger Together
We are so excited to share that this March marks EIGHT MONTHS of supporting our community through mutual aid. We have been busy in the past half-year, and it's all thanks to the generous support of people like you.
We are also growing! Our February Community Table provided food, PPE, and other necessities to over 100 community members. We hope to continue offering support at this level, but we need your help.
Our goal is to create connections, one person at a time, to form a network of solidarity. To achieve this goal, WE NEED YOU! We’re looking for a dedicated corps of volunteers who can commit to one or more of the following:

"This is the Way" is a short film created by our Miner students with our partnership with Arena Stage, a partnership made possible by Miner's Community School program.
This film was created to display who they are as people, the things they care about, and the Miner Community! This short film was made by a group of our 3rd-5th grade students who met virtually every Wednesday from October to December. During this time, they participated in various activities and exercises to activate their creative lenses. All the words and ideas in this film were written by the students.
We are very proud to share their project with all of you! We hope you enjoy!

Dear Miner community:
As school opens up for in-person learning, the Miner PTO is committed to doing what we can to support the teachers and staff coming back to the school. The reopening plan includes provision of personal protective equipment (PPE), but a survey of returning staff indicated that many did not feel the surgical masks provided would fully protect them from possible infection in the case of exposure to someone infected with COVID-19.
The Miner PTO is thus raising funds to purchase N95 and KN95 masks for returning staff who have indicated they would feel safer with a higher level of protection. We have established a special fund in our regular donation system for purchasing these masks. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today to make sure everyone feels safe coming back to in-person learning.
Your Miner Elementary PTO
