Corporate Partners

Dear Mark Twain Elementary School Supporter,

The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Mark Twain Elementary (MTE) is excited to prepare for the 2016-2017 school year. MTE’s purpose is to promote and develop responsible, active, and reflective citizens of the world. This past academic year, the Mark Twain community celebrated two major milestones – the 25th Anniversary of Literary Development Center and the 10th Anniversary of the International Baccalaureate Program. The mission of the MTE PTO is to enhance student education and build community through volunteer and fundraising efforts.

Located in inside the Loop in Braeswood Place, Mark Twain is nestled in between, The Medical Center, Bellaire and West University. Called by the Houston Press, the “best hidden neighborhood,” Braeswood Place is mix of native Texans, Houstonians, and friends from around the world.

For twelve years, through the dedication and generosity of our corporate sponsors, MTE PTO is able to raise funds that directly support and enrich our students. With continued funding cuts, our school needs corporate support to maintain the level of academic excellence that we strive for and expect. Your generous donations to support and supplement our students’ education through our International Baccalaureate program, Literary Development Program, Dual Language Program, educational materials, music and art enrichment, instructional field trips, technology enhancements, community service projects, professional development, facility and grounds upgrades. Our corporate campaign plays a vital role in our overall fundraising program.

MTE PTO also hosts fundraising events throughout the year, such as directory ads, Back to School Rumble, Spooky Spaghetti, Bingo Night, Spirit Nights, Math & Science Night, Art Night, Book Fair and Huckleberry Bash. Each event has additional benefits for greater company recognition for our Corporate Partners.

As we solidify our roots and grow into the future, we are branching out to our community corporate partners to flourish together. The PTO is happy to offer new options so your tax-deductible donation will increase your company’s reputation and exposure to the Mark Twain and Braeswood communities. On the following page, please find information regarding donation levels and associated marketing benefits for your business.

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful consideration and commitment to higher learning.
