Supporting our community: In our spirit of giving, the MAS PTA is organizing donations to support those experiencing hunger and food insecurity in the local community. Please help if you can!
Here are two ways to donate:
1) Purchase a gift card from Shoprite or Stop and Shop in ANY amount. Drop it off at the front office or send in to the office marked “MAS Cares” via backpack mail.
2) Contribute to MAS Cares, where the funds will be used to support families in need of extra help. Here is the site.
We request that all donations be made before Tuesday December 18th.
Thank you for being a part of this community of generosity and loving kindness.
Support Our 5th Grade Class Fund
Due to our unusual circumstances this year, we’ve been unable to hold such events like our Welcome Back BBQ or Election Day Bake Sale that help raise money for our 5th grade class fund. Please consider sponsoring our 5th class so we can give them the send off they deserve. Donations can be made here.
WHPHS PTA Craft Fair
Shop from the comfort of your home. Start your holiday shopping early with custom, personalized gifts from creative vendors. Shop for hand painted glassware, gift baskets, jewelry, holiday ornaments, custom signs, home decor, cosmetics, candles and much more at the 28th WPHS PTA Holiday Craft Fair. This year’s Craft Fair will be a Virtual Event and will begin on Monday 11/9. The craft fair is being held in memory of Kishal Rao who chaired the event for many years and lost her battle with cancer this past August. Vendors will be featured on the WPHS PTA Holiday Craft Fair Facebook and Instagram pages, with new vendors being introduced each week for 5 weeks. Please like and follow these pages and invite your friends and family to follow too.

Easy Ways to Help Raise Money for MAS!
Please check out the following ways to easily raise funds for MAS - many of these are shopping that you may already be doing; a few quick clicks will help direct some dollars to the PTA!
Stop & Shop: You may already shop at Stop & Shop - why not earn money for MAS at the same time? Sign up here - using school ID 07902.
Amazon Smile: Did you know that you can earn money for our PTA when you shop on Amazon? Visit smile.amazon.com, search for "Mamaroneck Avenue Elementary School PTA" (make sure it is the one in White Plains, NY), and select that as your charity. Going forward, a percentage of your purchase will be donated to our PTA every time you shop on Amazon through smile.amazon.com! (Note: this is not accessible through the Amazon app on your mobile phone.)
Learn More about the PTA
To learn about us, please visit our PTA webpage. Though events and happenings will look a little different this year, we will of course look to our parents and guardians for their involvement in many ways throughout the year. Having paid members is what allows PTA to operate as a non-profit child advocacy organization (learn more here or sign up here). We remain committed to our purpose as the MAS PTA, and believe, as always, that all of our MAS families are an essential part of what makes MAS so special, and that we will come together with the teachers and administration this year to create this fun, inclusive, safe, welcoming and supportive community that is MAS.
