Who we are:

We are a group of volunteer parents and guardians who work together with educators and administrators to fund and provide enrichment programs, scholarships and support for the Machias Elementary community. We believe that successful education is best achieved through collaboration between parents / guardians, teachers, and school administration in an non-judgemental, inclusive environment.
The Machias Elementary Parent Teacher Group provides support for our schools through:

  • Development, planning and organization of educational opportunities for our students and memorable family events.

  • Financial and volunteer support for our staff.

  • FUNDRAISING - a component necessary to adequately provide these services.​​​

The PTG meets at 6:30PM on Wednesdays on Zoom; dates are in our upcoming events.​ Our meetings are a great opportunity for you to meet other parents, share your ideas, and get involved in your child's Education.
