Orange Elementary and Middle PTA logo


Our PTA is a vital link between parents, teachers and community members. Our purpose is to enrich the emotional, academic, and environmental experience of the children who attend Orange Inclusive Preschool (OIP), Moreland Hills School (MHS) & Brady Middle School (BMS) through fundraising and programming. We accomplish this by:

  • Allocating more than $25,000 in Teacher Grants across OIP, MHS & BMS that enhance educational experiences
  • Providing $9,500 in Grade Level Programming funds for field trips, enrichment and special assemblies at OIP, MHS & BMS
  • Planning and funding Special Events, such as preschool, 5th & 8th grade graduation celebrations, the Ice Cream Social at MHS’s Back to School Kick Off, breakfasts & events to support Kindergarten transition & a middle school “block party”, to name a few!
  • Supporting Health, Safety & Wellness initiatives like Calm Corners, 4th & 5th Grade Running Club, Internet safety assemblies, food allergy education & awareness, mental health advocacy, book discussions and more!

*Figures based on funds raised during the 2023-2024 school year.
