Our PTO is actively involved in fundraising to support our school. A few of our most popular fundraisers are Spirit Days, Sociables, and Chinese New Year Festival.
Spirit Days: are days arranged by the PTO where MIMS families and their friends can go to a specific restaurant or business on certain dates and have a portion of their sales get donated back to the PTO/school. (Note: Families must mention to the restaurant that they have come for the MIMS Spirit Day so the PTO/school can get a donation.)
Marquee: Donate $30 to have your child’s birthday celebrated on the school marquee. Please donate $30 on the PTO donate button in the store tab. When you donate, please indicate that the donation is for birthday marqee so that our treasurer can account for the donation. Please screenshot your receipt and contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s name and birthday and look for a confirmation email.
Sociables: items and events hosted by MIMS families sold at our Fall Festival auction.
Chinese New Year Festival: The largest festival event of the school year. Lots of performances, games, food, vendor booths, and cultural crafts. Supported by parent volunteers and students.
Box Tops!! MIMS earns 10 cents for every Box Top that it returns to the company. Please trim your box tops and give them to your child’s homeroom teacher. Amount and expiration date must be visible on all labels. Click here to see which products have box tops. Thanks for helping your school!
If you donate more than $250, MIMS PTO will send you a charitable donation receipt. If you dontate less, you can still claim the donation, using a bank or payroll-deduction receipt, per IRS Publication 1771, Charitable Contributions, Substantiation and Disclosure Requirements.
For every ticket MIMS sells, the Houston Rockets will donate a portion of the proceeds back to MIMS.
