Parent Social & Literacy Night: Thursday Feb 27th 5:30pm-7pm
This is such a great opportunity to come hang out together, swap books, check out the book fair, and so much more!
Next MAPA Meeting: Thur March 5th 5:30pm
This will be a special meeting where we will put together Gala baskets, so if you have any baskets, or anything from your class basket that you’d like to bring we’d love to have you! If you’re not sure what your class basket is, have not been told the theme or need help in any other way with the Gala basket, please reach out to us! Mapa@mariamontessoriacademy.org We are for you guys! Speaking of Gala under our Gala title look for ticket and donation information! This meeting will take the place of the monthly morning meeting scheduled on Friday March 6th (so no meeting Friday morning).
Gala: Saturday March 21st 6-9pm at the Timbermine
It is time for the biggest party of the year! Come celebrate with us as we raise funds for the school in style! In the past we’ve been able to get computers, playground equipment, light up crosswalk signs and so much more. Your ticket includes admittance, dinner, line dance lessons, and a chance to have fun while helping out the school! There are amazing baskets being raffled off this year, and other art pieces and prizes to win as well! Tickets can be bought here:
Already have plans and can’t attend? Want to help out anyway? Make a monetary donation here:
Please remember for Gala baskets that the office cannot handle money for the baskets, if you can’t help with baskets and want to donate money instead for someone to buy something for the basket, you can go online and just add a donation and we can sort it out that way instead. Our sweet office ladies have enough on their plates. If you need any other help with this please email us and we can help you out!
Upcoming MAPA Elections:
Hey everyone at our last meeting formal candidates were announced for the following (2020-2021) school year. It’s not too late if you wish to run and make a difference! You need only show up to a meeting and at some point let us know your intention to run, and for which office. We hold the final vote at the general meeting on May 5th 2020. A list of which positions are open will be posted at the next meeting, mentioned again in the minutes and posted in our next blog! Be on the look out. Even if you don’t want a big responsibility there are plenty of bite sized opportunities, like event chairs for events that only happen once a year so you can serve a single event and be done. Think about it friends! There is room for everyone!
Thanks and acknowledgments:
Big thanks to our friends that helped out with Chili cook off and came by to visit with us! We loved getting to share hot dogs, potatoes and smiles with you! Thanks for coming by! We so appreciate everyone’s help with Gala that has pitched in and helped out so far by bringing in items to class and to the office. Big thanks to the school for their constant support and help with getting safety in a good place, and helping us with that. We appreciate all of our amazing MMA families and look forward to seeing you at the parent social and the Gala later in March!
