PTA Home Page

Mandeville Junior High PTA is proud to list SOME of the items that were purchased during the 2013-3014 school year. Of course, these items are for the ultimate use by and betterment of our students. It is due to the financial support and volunteer efforts of MJH parents and families that the PTA is able to purchase these items.

2 large screen TVs for the gym so that students with gym as homeroom can see the MJH Broadcast.

Computer and other necessary ancillary items for the Broadcast Team as well as paint for the “green screen”

2 piano keyboards for the music students

An overhead projector for the cafeteria for assemblies and drama productions

An ELMO for computer room in the 400 wing

33 headphones for the library

2 microwave ovens for the teacher’s lounge so that “heating lunches” takes less time from the many teachers who are trying to heat their lunch and eat in the allotted time.

2 rolling carts for the Student Council Student Store

New sheet music for the band’s spring concert

Computerized accessories for the First Lego League Competitions

Registration Fee Scholarships for State Choir Competition

Limousine Transportation for Student of the Year Nominees

Rock Wall & Disc Jockey fees for the 8th Grade Crawfish Boil plus a donation toward cost of crawfish

Of course this does not include the items purchased for Mini Grants, Teacher Appreciation Luncheon, Directory printing, materials such as mulch and flowers for Grounds Spruce Up, PBIS incentives such as smoothie tickets and gift cards, prizes for students awarded for TOT/EXCEL, newsletter printing, etc.


It has been a pleasure and a privilege to serve as 2013-14 MJH PTA President.

I would like to thank the Officers and Board of Directors for their assistance this year as well as the Principal, Assistant Principal, TRT, and all of the office staff. Without the support of all of these people, MJH PTA would not be the successful organization that it is. Having served as PTA President at MJH several years ago, I can attest to the fact that MJH administration, office personnel, and faculty and staff are very supportive of PTA. Coupled with parental support of donations of time and money, our MJH PTA has been successful in providing many wonderful things: tangible items such as computers, televisions, an ELMO, as well as intangibles such as good times and memories of dances and fun on the rockwall at the crawfish boil.

Thank you all for your support of MJH PTA.

Message from Mrs. Cucchiara:

Some parents have expressed concern about the weight of their child’s backpack. Please note the following:
  • Students may use rolling backpacks at MJH!
  • Teachers have class sets of most books and students do not have to carry books back and forth from home to school. Exceptions are the Science consumable book and the 8th Grade Louisiana History Textbook.
  • Most textbooks are also available online or on CD. Please check your teacher’s websites for online/digital textbook information.
  • It is suggested that students carry only enough paper, pencils and other supplies to get them through the week. They can replenish their supply on the weekends. This way students can minimize the weight. Parents should check their child’s backpack on a regular basis to monitor what is being carried to and from school in order to eliminate unnecessary weight.
  • Additional information regarding textbooks will be given out by the teachers at Open House on Monday, August 26th.
  • Students are issued a separate P.E. locker and can use that locker to store tennis shoes and P.E. uniforms.

If a student has an issue with a difficult locker or locker location, please let us know.

A form has been created for students to use to ask for locker or textbook assistance. Students can use either of the following links.
