Mission Possible (the PFA group at MSJHS) has finalized its 2013-2014 school year budget. We would like to thank the 610+ families who have made a donation so far which has enabled us to fund many great projects that will directly benefit ALL students at MSJHS. We always try to spend the bulk of our donations in the same year we receive them so that the current donations improve the school for current students.
If you haven’t made a donation yet it is never too late. We will likely consider a spring round of funding so donations are encouraged throughout the entire school year. Information on how to donate is available at: http://mppfa.org/donate/. Also, if you have already made a donation and your company provides matching please submit your matching request asap so we can potentially double your donation.
