Connecting home and school makes us a greater community of learners


As soon as you step into MJDS, you will feel at home. Families, just like our staff and students, are an integral part of this vibrant, pluralistic and welcoming community. You have multiple options to participate and engage in meaningful ways, from helping for a couple of hours in one event to serving on the committee of the Family Teacher Organization (FTO).

FTO is a volunteer organization comprised of moms, dads, teachers, staff and administrators. FTO develops and maintains participation by parents, supports student and staff needs, and encourages positive communication among parents, teachers and staff. Some FTO activities include Family Fun Day, Ladies Night Out, Men’s Night Out and special holiday lunches.

Being part of FTO is an exciting and rewarding way to stay connected and build life-long friendships with teachers, staff, students and other parents.

Please email us at fto@mjds.org and learn about our different volunteer opportunities or areas that interest you the most. We can't wait to hear from you!
