PTO November / December Events

We are having a FUN fall… lets keep it up as we charge into winter!


November PTO Meeting! Wednesday, November 9th: 7pm to 8pm

November will be a sleepy month for PTO events while we recuperate from our busy October and gear up for a BIG Christmas Festival. Why use the lull as an excuse to join us for our ONE in-person PTO meeting of the school year?  We will provide snacks giveaways for 3 lucky attendees!

We will review upcoming fundraising and social events. There are always opportunities to discuss how we can improve our MCS community or how you can be involved or influence upcoming events. 

The PTO meeting will be held in the MCS Library and will also be cast (simultaneously) via Zoom.

Open to the public! Mark your calendars – you won’t want to miss our first Christmas Festival since pre-pandemic days!

Parent Volunteers… because this is such a HUGE event, we need the help of many volunteers. 

Events: We need volunteers to help all throughout the day in small, managable tasks and windows of time.  We’re looking for both parent volunteers and middle/high school students looking for service hours. Volunteers slots and descriptions can be found in the Event:  Volunteer Now! button below.

Scholastic Book Fair:  We need adult volunteers to help cash out book purchases, look up Scholastic Book Fair eFunds and help little ones shop for books.  Volunteers are needed at the event (Sunday Dec 4th) as well as the week leading up to the event (Nov 28th through Dec 2nd) in limited hours.  Volunteers slots and descriptions can be found in the Book Fair: Volunteer Now! button below.
