Hey amazing MMA families!
Before we head off to settle ourselves for a much deserved winter nap, here are a few things from MAPA to be aware of this last week before winter break:
Box Top Store: The box top store was postponed last week due to lack of volunteers, we are so sorry for the short notice. We are hoping to host one more in the spring and will have that date for you after the first of the year! Thank your for your patience with this.
Book Fair: Happening Tue Dec 17th-Thur Dec 19th from 1pm-6:30pm (tentatively) All dates and times are dependent upon volunteer support, without enough man/mom power we have to cut back on days and limit hours. If you are able to come out and volunteer we are in desperate need of help running this event. Sign up below. Come out and enjoy the book fair and get some of that Christmas shopping done! We have books, novelties and other fun stocking-stuffer items!
Parent teacher conference dinners: For those of you families that are new this year, during conference week our teachers spend almost twelve hours at the school! We try to help with this, by offering a light dinner since these are long hours. In order to do this we often reach out to our parents for help. Please go to track it forward help by signing up to bring an item on any of the days listed. The links to help out are listed below. This is a huge help to us, and a large gesture of kindness to our teachers that put in 110%.
Tuesday night: Sandwich fixin’s
Wednesday night: Soup and Salad night
Thursday night: Taco Salad
No School: Please be advised there is no school Friday Dec 20th for professional development. Winter break starts the following Monday December 23rd through January 3rd. School resumes Monday January 6th at normal times. There is also no school the Friday we come back (January 10th, for professional development).
MAPA Meetings/Parent Social: So, we did a sneaky on you! We have planned a meet and greet social on Thursday January 9th 5:30pm in the little gym! We are excited to have opportunities to hang, meet you, hear your thoughts and mostly spend time away from our kids as adults. Please bring a dish to share and be ready to be welcomed into the group. We are a friendly bunch and are always looking to meet a new face! If you have time our MAPA meeting starts at 6:00pm, and we’d love to have you stay on and be a part of that as well. All are welcome!
As always, if you need to get a hold of us, or you have questions about volunteering or anything else feel free to comment on this blog, our facebook page or contact the school directly. We are always happy to help out and to hear from our fellow parents.
A holiday message from MAPA: Dearest MMA Families, we want to wish all of you a happy and safe holiday with your loved ones. No matter what you are celebrating, or where you are celebrating; may you find peace in the season and in your hearts. Best of season’s tidings to all of you! With love, your 2019-2020 MAPA Board!
