Events and Activities 
- PTO Meetings are August, September, October, November, January, February, March, April and May
- Apparel Sales. Mater Dei logo items (some are uniform approved!) and a portion of the proceeds support our mission.
- Helping provide volunteers for the School Book Fair.
- Parade Float for Heelan High School Homecoming Parade.
- Teacher Conference Meals and Snacks (Fall and Spring.)
- Parents’ Night Out. This fun and relaxing night enables our parents to get to know each other outside of PTO meetings. 
- Kids’ Night Out. This is a popular night at the school (supervised by adults and high school volunteers) so kids can have fun outside the classroom. 
- Annual Fundraiser* This effort takes place in October.
- Teacher Appreciation Week. We offer theme days during this special week.

Our efforts have helped purchase new classroom maps, a Smartboard for a 5th grade classroom and reading materials for our students and the "One School One Book" program and more!
