Volunteer Opportunities


We ask that each family participate in 30 hours per school year.  Work done through these volunteer hours are one of the key things that build up our MWMA community and make our school a unique and amazing place to learn.  We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities to support your talents, interests, and availability.  You may also contact your student’s teacher for additional school needs.



Business Sponsors

Funds raised will go towards: Library reading materials and resource center books, Teacher Appreciation, outside classroom/Gardening areas, Family Activities at the School, and enrichment activities for our students.   Sponsor Request Form

We are always on the lookout for new and exciting after school opportunities for our students.  Have a special skill or hobby that would interest students?  Consider organizing an after-school club.  (Applications are available in the front office.)

We welcome any school appropriate book donations to help us fill the MWMA library shelves!



Monetary contributions are greatly appreciated and will support our students in a variety of ways.  Our educational method promotes using hands-on learning materials and providing students with the opportunity to take field trips.
