• Welcome to MES PTA
      Important Announcements   
    MES PTA Membership Drive 2020-2021
    MES PTA (Montgomery Elementary School Parent Teacher Association) is a community made up of parents, guardians, teachers and staff whose goal is to enrich the experience of our students at Orchard Hill Elementary School and Village Elementary School.
    MES PTA is supported by the generous donations of time, finances and love from our community. Last academic year (2019- 2020), MES PTA raised and provided more than $40,000 of funding for the students for Educational Programs (ex. Character Education, Assemblies), grants for teachers and staff, facility renovations, appreciations events for teachers/staff, etc.
    ( See full list above in the 2019-2020 recap ).
    Sign up today to be a member! We can't do it without you! (see below link)
    (At this time, we will only have an online option to sign up for membership.)  
    * NOTE: If your family is eligible for free/reduced lunch, please contact your school’s secretary to inquire about membership fee waiver.

    School supplies
    Did you open your box to squeals of delight? 
    Was there excitement as your little one received their school supplies?

    Dear MES PTA Members, 
    With all of the unexpected obstacles that we faced this past year, we were still able to accomplish quite a bit for the 2019-2020 school year and we would like to share those accomplishments with you. We thank you all for your support and for volunteering for your MES PTA.
