Parents’ Association Membership: Frequently Asked Questions
Who can be a member? Just having a child at MSSM makes you a member. There are no fees associated with being a member of the Parents’ Association.
Do you have meetings? Yes, we have meetings twice a year. We have one meeting in the fall during parent conferences in October and one meeting in the spring during family weekend (TBA). Parents are encouraged to attend. We also have regional get togethers where parents offer to host others at their home. These are informal and a great way to get connected with other parents that have children at MSSM. You can pick which regional meeting you would like to go to or you can attend them all.
How can I donate to the Parents’ Association? All donations go through the MSSM Foundation. If you want to make a donation for a PA event, activity, or fund please indicate in the memo section of the check. You can also go to the school website to donate online.
What is the MSSM Foundation? The MSSM Foundation is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization that raises funds to help advance the mission of the Maine School of Science and Mathematics.
How can I help with the different activities? All parents are invited to help with a wide variety of activities throughout the year. There will be sign up sheet at the MSSMPA table during registration as well as both fall and spring PA meetings. Watch your emails and the FB page for more information or contact a PA executive board member.
