The MOPTO strives to support the students, parents and education at MOMS by promoting a sense of community through fundraisers, events and give-back programs. All of these activities add to a positive MOMS experience for all of us…and especially for our students. The MOPTO plans, organizes, staffs and implements dozens of activities each year. Families can volunteer as little or as much as possible.
