Merrill PTA’s focus is simple. We help our students, teachers, and staff.

Visit the Merrill PTA site and follow us on Facebook to get the most up-to-date information about

  • Where your help is most needed through donations or volunteering
  • PTA meetings
  • Buying Merrill spirit apparel
  • And more!

The school or PTA identify a need, and the PTA works with staff, families, and the Des Moines community to address it. Throughout the year, PTA will ask for donations – time, financial or in-kind. Visit the PTA website and also watch your email for on-going volunteer and donation opportunities along with our meeting dates. We greatly appreciate your support of our students, teachers, and staff.
