PTA Fun Run

Apex Fun Run is coming to our school from April 11th-April 20th! Next Wednesday we kick off our Apex Fun Run with a Pep Rally @ 2:00! We’d love you to join us!


Please note that our donation collections will all be done online through the Apex website www.apexfunrun.com to make the collection process easier and faster. Of course, sponsors can still pay by cash/check if they choose, we just ask that these donations be turned into the school any time before the Fun Run (April 20), so that students receive credit.

Star Wars Parents Night Out at MHS

The TAFE (Texas Association of Future Educators) students at Mansfield High School are hosting a Star Wars Parent Night Out. These students are doing this as a fundraiser. On May 11th from 6-9 you can bring your children to MHS and drop them off with us for a Star Wars themed fun filled night. All children must be potty trained and at least 4 years old. During their time with us your children will play games, make crafts, color, and of course eat pizza. The cost for this is $10 for the first child and $5 for each additional child with a max of $25 per family. You must reserve your spot as we can only host 100 children this year. If you would like to participate in this please use this link and complete the form. We can only accept cash or checks.

MISD Clothes Closet Needs

The MISD Clothes Closet is in need of summer clothes for both boys and girls of all ages! Items needed are shirts, shorts, summer dresses and skirts. Many of us are changing out the seasons in our own closets this time of year, and as we begin to filter out what fits and what we can pass down, the Willie Brown PTA asks that you consider donating the items you no longer need or those items you know your family can do without to the MISD Clothes Closet. The MISD Clothes Closet serves our very own community, our neighbors, the children our kiddos sit next to in class and they need our help! You can drop off donations to the Clothes Closet blue drop box found of the front porch of their building located at 1016 Magnolia Street, Suite D, Building 600 Mansfield, TX 76063, next door to Erma Nash Elementary School. Thank you for your consideration and for your support of the MISD Clothes Closet.
