The mission of Mary Helen Guest Elementary School, in cooperation with the community, is to educate all children in a caring environment so that every student is a knowledgeable, resourceful and self-reliant individual able to adapt and contribute productively to our changing society.


Mary Helen Guest PTA NEEDS YOU!!! We are a group of parent volunteers and staff working together for our children. Joining PTA shows support for our school and gives members the ability to vote at meetings. Although membership is not required to attend meetings and participate in PTA events, we do encourage all our families to join. At our monthly meetings we discuss the many activities that we plan for our Guest families and also learn about what is happening in Walled Lake Schools and the State of Michigan in education. PTA is a great opportunity to work with our principal, feel more connected with the staff, and meet other parents. Members can choose their level of involvement, and membership does not require unreasonable amounts of time. We are proud at Guest that we have received Honor Roll awards for our percent of parent involvement as well as a Merit Award for 100% staff membership. We really strive for all our families to become a moving part of this great school by joining the PTA.

Our main role as a PTA is to provide quality programs and education for our children. With yearly reductions in school funding, we play a vital role in continuing to provide programming and activities that would have otherwise been cut from the school. Our Fall Color Run, the biggest fundraiser of the year, raises thousands of dollars to support these programs at Mary Helen Guest. PTA has purchased valuable equipment and building needs, while supporting the following on-going programs: teacher stipends for classroom books and materials, scholarships to students for camp or field trips, school assemblies and special programs (anti-bullying, internet safety, etc), training sessions for the teachers, music and art support, and much more.

Our Mary Helen Guest PTA needs you to maintain and continue these efforts. At our April PTA meeting, we will be holding our yearly board elections. To view a list of all the board and chair positions, including descriptions of each, click here. To nominate yourself for one or more of the board positions and/or to volunteer for one or more of the chairperson positions, click here. Please complete all nominations and volunteer submissions by Monday, March 28. We encourage you to step up and support our children!
