What the PTA Does and How We Do It
We collaborate with the principal, staff, teachers, and parents to promote children’s well-being and success. The Mark Keppel PTA promotes and pays for the community to:
  • Develop student enrichment and culture by organizing school assemblies and art programs, such as the popular Reflections Art Program 
  • Support humanitarian causes through events such as the Food, Toy, and Book Drives 
  • Promote community through social events that include:
    • Back-to-School Picnic
    • Parent-Child Events
    • Family Reading Night
    • The Ned Show
    • Teacher and Staff Appreciation WeeksFounder’s Day
    • Yearbook
  • Generate awareness of crucial social issues through:
    • Red Ribbon Week (an alcohol, tobacco, drug, and prevention awareness campaign)
    • Yellow Ribbon Week (a campaign designed to prevent violence, promote kindness towards others, and provide a safe environment for children of our community)
This year the PTA is gave back $6,000 to all the classrooms in exchange for teacher memberships!
