Fundraising

The PTSA subsidizes much of what your child experiences during a typical week, from art and music to P.E., library books and field trips. We raise funds through Cada Familia, our ongoing fundraising campaign, and by hosting two school-wide fundraising events per year: Bailatón and Lee-a-tón

Equity and Access

The PTSA prioritizes the needs, expertise, and experiences of our Spanish-speaking and historically marginalized communities, while leveraging and expanding the support of families with socioeconomic privilege.

English-speaking families: How do we show up to a bilingual school?

MLA was founded on the premise of providing opportunities for native Spanish speakers and newcomers, as well as opportunities for cross-cultural communication, empathy and learning for all students. We invite you to consider the unique dynamics of a bilingual school and engage with this in mind. Check out this article by a member of our community for more information.
