Also we’d like to include a reminder that you can send your student a Birthday Gram, new this year! Complete the form, place in an envelope marked PTA Birthday Gram, and return it to school. We will then deliver a Happy Birthday Spirit Stick to your student on their birthday! Does your kiddo have a summer birthday? That’s ok, we can deliver their Birthday Gram on their half birthday, or any designated day that you would like to celebrate.¬†

 

Lastly, the MCS PTA has two events coming up this month. Join us for our monthly meeting on October 11, 2017 at 5pm. We will be meeting in the staff room, and we are working to have childcare available, although kids are always welcome to come! At the end of the month, we will be hosting our annual Halloween Party. Save the date- October 26, 2017. As this is our most popular event, we hold it in two sessions. Session 1 is 5:30-6:30 and is for students and their families in grade K & 2. Session 2 is from 7:00-8:00 and is for students and their families in grades 1 & 3. Please note, if you have a students in multiple grades, you can choose one session to attend together to make it easier to enjoy the event. Keep a watch out for our event flyer coming soon. If you have offered to help with the Halloween Party, we will be in contact with you soon with the volunteer opportunities you can sign up to help with.
