The MPES PTA Board is recommending that the MPES PTA be dissolved and a Parent Teacher Organization ("PTO") be formed in its place.

We would dissolve the MPES PTA as of June 30, 2019 and the PTO would be effective immediately to avoid any interruption in the activities and programs for the 2019-2020 school year.

IMES, KES, JJMS, JJHS all have PTO's that have been operating successfully for years. There are many benefits to forming a PTO. As you may know we are bound by NYSPTA laws that in the past have taken away Before/After School Enrichment programs which we have worked very hard to start again. This year we were unable to pay the transportation fees for school trips under NYS PTA regulations. Therefore, we would like to join our KLSD community and also become a PTO. With a PTO everyone will automatically be a member of our organization. We are the only school in our community that is a PTA. This change should be seamless for our students and committee chairs and would allow more flexibility.

In order to dissolve the MPES PTA, we need to show that MPES PTA members agree. If you are in favor of doing so, and if you are a current PTA member*, Please sign the petition.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Monica DiMatteo at or Veronica Skrelja at

*NOTE: PTA membership is by individual only; its not a family membership. This petition MUST be signed by the actual PTA MEMBER.
