Spring Break Food Drive

We are partnering with John Muir Elementary and the Berkeley Food Pantry to put together food bags for more than 90 of our families. Our goal is to help families who depend on school breakfasts and lunches that students will be missing over spring break.

Get Ready for the MX PTA Raffle

Our Malcolm X PTA Raffle is starting the week we come back from spring break! This event is one of our biggest annual fundraisers and one in which everyone can participate.

Save the Date for MX Discovery Night

Mark your calendars for Malcolm X Discovery Night on Wednesday, April 12th. This year’s interactive festival from Lawrence Hall of Science, Build It!, brings out and rewards the builder and mathematician in everyone.

Get Ready for the Spring Raffle!

Please roll up your sleeves and get ready for our school’s last big fundraiser of the year! The annual PTA Raffle is one of our biggest fundraisers, and it’s a fun one because it involves our children. 

The raffle begins April 12 and ends May 1. In order to make this event a success, we need volunteers

Post-Auction Sales!

For those of you who couldn't make it to Havana Nights or who missed out on bidding for some items, there are spots left in some of them Parties and Playdates donated by members of the Malcolm X community.  Online bidding is open now!

'The Mask You Live In' Screening

Please join Malcolm X and Washington PTAs on Wednesday, March 15th at 5:30pm at Washington Elementary for a screening of "The Mask You Live In," a documentary film about how we raise boys in America.

Grade 1-3 Dance Class Notes

A costume sewing bee, a dance class open house and performance dates are on the calendar for Grades 1-3.

Sponsor the Bar at Havana Nights!

The PTA is not allowed to spend funds on alcohol, so we are looking for parent donations to fund liberal libations. Your contributions help us generate more money for the school and ensure that there will be tasty cocktails, beer and wine on hand to enhance the evening's fun.

Volunteer for Havana Nights!

So instead of thinking about the outfit that you want to wear for the upcoming Havana Nights Auction/Dance Party, you might want to think about how good you will look taking on a volunteer shift or three. Seriously, though, we still have lots of open volunteer slots available.

Wine Wednesdays Began February 1!

Beginning on Wednesday, 2/1, look for The Lady with the Big Hat at rolling drop off (on the Ellis Street side) or leave your bottle of wine or 22-oz beer in the school office anytime.

Help Out the MX Auction

"HAVANA NIGHTS"  - Malcolm X 7th Annual Silent Auction and Dance Party - is coming up on February 25th, 2017. And volunteers are still needed!
