PTO exists to enhance the educational and spiritual growth of the MTCES community. We strive to offer opportunities for learning that enhance the classroom curriculum for our students; to provide continuing education, supplemental materials and appreciation programs for our faculty and to strengthen our sense of community through programs and activities for the MTCES families.

MTCES is blessed to have an extremely active and dedicated PTO. The organization's countless efforts have outfitted classrooms, awarded scholarships, and enhanced our curriculum by funding technology upgrades, speaker series for both students and parents, educational supplies, and much more. Following are some of PTO's activities and fundraisers:
Mini Grants for Faculty- These grants may be applied for twice per year by any member of the MTCES staff. They are designed to fund activities and/or supplies to enrich and enhance the curriculum.
Student Presentations- PTO plans and sponsors educational presenters who bring hands-on activities to our very own Student Center.
Teacher Appreciation- At various times throughout the year, PTO provides lunch and breakfast for the faculty.
End of the Year Picnic- This is a great way to celebrate all your kids have accomplished over the year! This event is especially important to our kindergarten families – we host the kindergarten graduation at the picnic.
PTO Scholarships- Each year, PTO will honor two eighth grade students who embody the Spirit of Mother Teresa with a scholarship for half year tuition.
Magazine Drive- This fundraiser gives MTCES families and friends the opportunity to renew magazines to which they already subscribe or to order new magazines at no extra cost (often less expensive than publishers rates). PTO retains 50% of the cost of each subscription.
Walk-a-Thon- Each spring, PTO hosts our annual Walk-a-Thon. The kids have a great time cruising around the campus while earning money toward PTO’s important programs.
Santa’s Secret Workshop- Just before Christmas, Santa brings his elves to Mother Teresa to let the kids do their own Christmas shopping. The kids love to shop for inexpensive gifts for everyone on their list!
Smoothie Day- Once a month, parents can order a smoothie from Smoothie King for their child(ren). The order is placed along with the hot lunch order.
Kroger/Amazon/Target Rewards Programs- Retailer rewards programs allow parents to sign our school up to earn points for each dollar they spend.
