The Milwaukee German Immersion School (MGIS) embraces families and supports their vital role in education. Parents are encouraged to collaborate with teachers and school leaders to strengthen school and student success. One way to help MGIS is to become a member of the MGIS PTA.
The MGIS PTA spearheads the following activities and events throughout the year:
- Fall and Spring Fundraiser
- Book Distribution to all students
- Grants for classroom supplies
- Funding for field trips
- Family evening programs such as Grillfest, Laternennacht, Kinderkino, Rollschuhabend, and Multicultural Night.
PTA meetings are held on alternating Tuesdays and Thursdays of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria.
All PTA members, visitors, interested families, grandparents, and other family members, are welcome to attend meetings.
The current PTA president, as well as board members, invite families to make a difference and join the PTA. For more information, please contact PTA president, Judy Rutter (see below) or call the school office at (414) 393-5600.
Hello MGIS Families,
I am very excited about our upcoming school year and would like to share some updates with you.
First, though, it is time to join our PTA community for the 2018-19 school year. The first 75 people to join our PTA this year will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Target gift card!! Bring your $6.00 (cash or check) to our PTA table at the open house and join our PTA early so you can get in on the drawing!!
In an effort to make our monthly PTA meetings more accessible to more PTA members, this year we will be alternating our meetings between Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the school year. If Tuesdays have been unworkable for you in the past, we hope that you’ll be able to attend some of our Thursday meetings this year. Parent involvement is a huge piece of what makes MGIS such a remarkable community. We can’t wait to see you at a meeting! Watch for the school calendar for the specific dates.
I am truly delighted to be involved in our PTA. Last year we were the largest PTA in the City of Milwaukee. This year we want to reach 200 members and we are just the school to do it! Won’t you come and join us as we support our kids and support this remarkable school? Sign up today!
I wish each of you a great 18-19 school year!
MGIS PTA President
