PTO membership is automatic, and there are no dues: All Parents/Guardians and Miner staff are automatically considered members of the PTO. So whether you want to hear how to get more involved at Miner, or just hear about what's going on, come to our monthly PTO meetings! To help make it easier for families to participate, light refreshments and free babysitting are always provided. More information about the PTO here: http://www.minerelementary.org/parent-teacher-organization.html

The Miner PTO is a 501c(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible!
Coat hangers needed for the Family Support Center: Both adult size and child sizes are needed so we can organize our inventory of coats, backpacks, uniforms, and other items to be provided to families in need. Just drop off donations at the front desk. See the Donation page for more information about this and other in-kind donations needed: http://www.minerelementary.org/donate.html
