August 2018


    Dear Parents, Guardians & Teachers:


    The Morris County School of Technology’s PTO welcomes you to the 2018-2019 school year.  We are excited about this year’s fundraising events and look forward to being able to give back to the students, teachers and staff.  Please become a member and join – the cost is only $10 per person.  Be on the lookout for an email with a link inviting you to become a member.


    At MCST the PTO keeps things simple.  “Keep it Simple” (KIS) is our main fundraiser for the school year.  The PTO does not do cookie or magazines sales.  Rather we simply ask that you donate $30 for each child attending MCST to help the PTO.  Our philosophy is to give back to the students and school.  The money we raise is used to offer scholarships to members of the senior class, donate to each year’s Project Graduation, provide mini grants to teachers in addition to donating supplemental items school district budgets don’t cover.  Your child is eligible to apply for a PTO Scholarship if you are a member for all four years.  This year we will be awarding three scholarships valued at $1,000 each to a graduating senior.   


    We hold meetings every other month in the school cafeteria and they last about an hour.  Our kickoff meeting is scheduled for September 25th at 7 PM.  The online school event calendar will list all our meetings and upcoming events.  Watch for Designer Bag Bingo held in the Fall and Spring, as well as our Fourth Annual Comedy Night scheduled for early March.  Understanding that it is sometimes difficult to attend meetings minutes are posted on the school website so you can stay informed. 


    Again, welcome to MCST and I urge you to join the PTO and become involved in whatever capacity you can.  We are looking for individuals to fill The Fundraising and Hospitality Chair positions currently open.  Consider grabbing a friend and Co-Chairing one of them.  At the end of the school year, the President and Vice President positions will also be available.  Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns throughout the school year.  I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting!
