October.. It’s a wrap!

What is MAPA? We are parents. We are supporters. We are fundraisers. We are a community. We are volunteers. 

We are THANKFUL. img_9557-copy

We want to thank everyone who came to our Fall Festival. We had an amazing turnout and raised almost $3000 for our school!

These fundraisers that we do throughout the year bring very important funds to our school. It also keeps our kids from having to sell coupon books etc. We have a couple fundraisers coming up that we would love your help with. Please watch for the sign up sheets.

We are participating in the Besst Realty Group food drive, and we have the opportunity to earn some money for our school. Our school needs to collect at least 500 items by November 9th to get the prize money and get our Dress Down Day from Ms. Stephanie.  Please bring your non-perishable food to the lobby during school hours.

Our annual Chili Cook-off is coming up! Please sign-up on the WeJoinIn link below. There will be a great prize for the first place winner! This evening is always filled with good food, good fun, and a lot of chili, so don’t miss out! https://www.wejoinin.com/sheets/wgkpp

This year’s Gratitude Feast will be on November 17th and is going to be a little different this year. We will be serving soups, sandwiches, and desserts. If you would like to help out please watch for the sign up sheet coming out soon.

Plans for our 7th annual Gala are now underway. If you have not attended our Gala before, it is a fun adults-only night of dinner, dancing, auctions, and more. The highlight of the evening is our live auction where we auction off beautiful artwork made by our very own students. Our auctioneer is very entertaining and you are sure to have a great time just watching it.

The Gala is a very important night as it serves as MAPA’s main fundraiser and helps fund fun activities such as skate night and our Fall Festival.

Our main goal however is to provide MMA with a yearly gift of $10,000 or more. That money has been used in previous years to purchase things like computers, playground and PE equipment and our brand new flashing crosswalk signs. This year our goal is to make $15,000 to purchase a new MMA sign and marquee, and with any money left over we would like to give our teachers more storage in their classrooms.

The Gala is a huge event and it takes many people to make it happen. We need you. We are looking for volunteers to help plan the event, solicit donations from the community, package donations for our silent auction, artwork preparation and much more. It is a great way to earn your 40 hours of service. If you would like to help, sign up at this link https://www.wejoinin.com/sheets/ygzsj. If you signed up at our back to school pool party, please sign up again.

If you are a business owner and wish to donate to our silent auction please use this sheet as well. If you have any questions you can contact our Gala Chairperson Felicia Fernandez at 801-920-6361 or MAPA President Autumn Douglas at 801-458-1590
