PTA President’s Message


Welcome (back) to the MJH PTA Website. On this page you will find helpful information such as NEWSFLASHES, PTA “important dates”, and the “unofficial guide to MJH” which may be of assistance to parents and students who are new to MJH. We also have listed some of the accomplishments of the PTA during the 2013-14 school year.

Through the financial and volunteer efforts of MJH parents, faculty, students, and community friends, the PTA is able to provide tangible items such as computers, software, musical equipment, etc. that assist our students and teachers. The PTA also provides non tangible things such as memories made at school dances and extra “manpower” in the front office. We appreciate your donations of your time and money that keep the PTA in motion!

I look forward to serving as PTA President at MJH and working with the 2014-15 PTA Board of Directors as they are a dynamic group of volunteers. The faculty and staff here at MJH are great supporters of PTA and have the best interests of our students at heart. This has not changed since my “first time around” way back in 2006!

All PTA members are invited to attend our monthly meetings, which will be announced in every Newsletter, which the PTA publishes monthly.

3 Cheers for MJH-

Michaelle Wolfe Scelfo

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.
