The PTA has provided services such as communications (such as Dragon Dateline Newsletter, Fridge Notes, the listserv & eblasts), workshops (such as Race to Nowhere, Sexuality communications), community events (such picnics, Dragon Men workshops, dance/sock hop), support the school's staff (gifts, social/food events, Staff Appreciation Week and financial reimbursements for classroom related supplies), raise funds for the school to cover for items that MCPS do not have money to pay for (Mixed Bags, Dine Out and Book Fair) and many other important events and issues such as advocacy with the Board of Education, hold a Science Expo, maintain the Butterfly Garden, create a school directory and yearbook, coordinate after school classes (Legos, Mad Science, sports), etc. We want to know what you think is worthwhile and important.
