About MSHS PTSA
The Mount Si High School PTSA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Our parent-teacher-student organization was incorporated in 1993 as the Wildcat Inspiration Network, founded to promote academic excellence at Mount Si High School, increase parent involvement in school activities, and foster positive relations and service between MSHS students and their community. Our name has changed, but our mission remains the same.
For as little as $15 you can join the MSHS PTSA and help us enhance and promote the positive, inclusive, excellent educational experience at Mount Si.
MSHS PTSA is an affiliate of the National PTA, Washington State PTA, and works in collaboration with the Snoqualmie Valley PTSA Council.
- The MSHS PTSA provides an invaluable communications link between parents and school administration and works closely with the school’s principal to offer assistance and support for staff and students.
- The PTSA establishes a volunteer base to assist with school events, such as picture day and vision & hearing screenings; sponsors parent education programs with experts; offers state and national PTA programming such as the Reflections Art Program and WSPTA Scholarships; and organizes events for the senior class, such as the car parade and Grad Night celebration.
- The PTSA's student welfare program maintains the school's C.A.R.E. Closet, which has a pantry stocked with healthy snacks and take-home food, school supplies, toiletries, clothing, jackets, and shoes for any student in need. Additionally, PTSA funds support the school's participation in the InvestEd program, a statewide venture that helps bridge the gap between what families can afford, what schools can support, and what students urgently need to achieve.
- MSHS PTSA regularly celebrates our school’s hard-working staff and students by hosting teacher appreciation events throughout the year and assisting the principal with staff and student recognition awards.
Every Child, One Voice
For over 125 years, PTAs across the country have worked toward bettering the lives of every child in education, health and safety. Founded in 1897, National PTA is a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.
Today PTAs and PTSAs are a network of millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of family engagement in schools. MSHS PTSA is proud to be a local unit contributing to the well-being of our children, families, school staff, and community.
PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. The PTA’s nationwide network provides parents with the forum and tools to collectively influence the decisions that affect children not only at their schools, but also throughout their districts, within their states, and across the nation.
