September News 2023
News & Updates from MTE:
The Chocolate Sale is officially over. Thank you VERY much to the families that sold boxes. The funds, collected by PTA, are used to support our students and staff all year long at MTE. If you still have chocolate money to turn in, send it to PTA as soon as possible!
The Turner Days PARADE is coming! Each year our community comes together for Turner Days, which includes a parade and an all day event with games, entertainment, and food. We are looking for parent volunteers to help with our Midland Trail parade entry. Ideally we would like to find a parent/family with a truck to decorate and drive in the parade. We will invite students and parents to walk along and pass out candy to parade watchers. Bonus if you are available to wear our MTE Tiger mascot! Please reach out/email Aron Attebery or Abbi Linville if you can help. firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Parking at MTE is changing. We have currently been able to utilize the grass/side of 51st street along the front of our building as parking for school events. The district has installed underground water pipes and we can no longer park along the street. We will utilized the parking behind MTE at by the fields at Highland Park for all school events.
Join PTA for only $8 as a single membership. We currently have less than 100 members in our PTA, including all families and staff. For only $8 you can join and support the events that happen all year long at MTE. Joining as a member does not sign you up to be part of a committee or group, it just shows your support to PTA and Midland Trail. Use the link found below and join today. Thank you!

Important SEPTEMBER Dates:
18 - Professional Learning, No School
Join PTA! Our PTA needs YOU! We need more support in order to keep PTA moving forward at Midland Trail. The commitment is small. We meet once a month, after school, for 30-45 minutes. We plan a few activities each year: Back To School, Classroom Parties, Teacher Treats, Candy Sales, and our biggest event is the MTE Carnival. We cannot do this without more support. Please consider joining PTA and offering to help out once a month.

TUSD Transportation ~ Bus Cards
Bus Rider Families,
As you are aware, our transportation department utilizes Traversa Ride 360 for our bus tracking platform. This technology allows parents/guardians to see information about their student's route, including the times that their student gets on and off the bus.
In order for this platform to work correctly, students are issued a bus card that they must scan when they get on and off the bus.
If you are not familiar with Traversa Ride 360, you can find more information here: https://www.turnerusd202.org/departments/transportation
