Volunteer Opportunities

Mt. Pleasant invites all parents to participate in Parent Committees. The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is a group of elected parents and staff who collaborate with MPHS Site Council, the Principal, and School to improve the effectiveness of our English-learners Program. ELAC meets once a month in the Parent Center located in room 804.


School Site Council includes parent, community members, students, and administration and staff members. School Site Council’s primary function is in supporting and monitoring the progress of the school in fulfilling the school plan (Single Plan for Student Achievement) to ensure all students are achieving at a higher level. Non-voting members are encouraged to attend and participate in the discussions. School Site Council meets on the First Tuesday of each month in the in the library at 5:30 p.m. 

Parent Workshops


Once a month we provide a Parent Workshop that covers several topics that will assist parents in increasing their student’s academic success. All workshops are held in the Multi Purpose Room located across from the theater.
