We can’t believe the end of the summer is upon us and we will all be together once again at MCS to kick off another great school year! Yes, this year will look different, but we know the MCS community will be strong and persevere whatever challenges are ahead as always.
In our last update, we put out the call for replacement board members, as our current term was to end in June, and we are extremely happy to announce our new MCS PTO President! John Ball, parent of a 1st grader, PreK student and a future MCS student, has stepped up to the plate and will be taking over presidential duties. Please join me in congratulating him and supporting him by volunteering to fill our remaining positions:
- Social chair – Responsible for organizing or establishing committees for PTO social events to get the school community together, including oversight or management of parent / child events
- Fundraising – Works closely with the Social chair but is primarily responsible for the school’s small fundraisers and oversees the chairs of the Christmas Festival, Golf Tournament or any other large event
- Room parent coordinator – Responsible for communicating all important information to Room Parents and follow up. Takes board meetings notes and disseminates to Room Parents. Assists in social / fundraising activities as needed
As mentioned in the last PTO update, we were forced to cancel our Annual Golf Open in the spring, which is one of the largest fundraisers for the school. It is doubtful that the 2020 Christmas Festival, another huge fundraiser, will be allowed to occur either.
We have two small fundraisers which are ending on Monday, August 31st:
MCS Custom Jewelry – please view the locally crafted, beautiful jewelry here and consider a purchase!! Share on social media to your friends and family! While it is the MCS cross in the design, the pieces can represent any religious sentiment!
MCS Children’s Masks – This is the nicest quality mask we have seen. The face mask provides 3 layers of protection and has adjustable straps to fit all heads.
MCS’ own social chair AND science teacher, Diana McLaughlin, had a chance to evaluate the mask. Check out her assessment here!!!
- Shutterfly – Shop at the MCS Storefront and MCS gets 8% of your purchase!
- Box Tops – Download the app from the app store and scan your receipts!! We desperately need help with this as we have seen a significant drop in Box Tops funding coming back to MCS!
- Stop & Shop Rewards – Help MCS earn CASH! REGISTER your Stop & Shop Card using our ID #05778 or call 877-366-2668 OPTION #1.
- Amazon Smile – Visit Amazon, go to the “Your Accounts & Lists” menu, look under the “Your Account” section for “Your AmazonSmile.” Select MCS!
