Here’s the scoop for this fun week ...
MMS TRIVIA NIGHT: We know you’re all crazy busy now with nonstop holiday parties and end-of-year gatherings, but don’t forget -- February is cold & dark with little going on! What better than to make plans to inject some fun into winter and attend MMS Trivia Night! Our largest fundraiser of the year is Friday, February 3rd at the Woodland and you won’t want to miss it! Tickets are limited and this event is always sold out, so reserve your seat/table today. Click HERE for all the info and HERE to purchase tickets.
SPIRIT WEEK: This week is Spirit Week! Student Council has put a ton of time & energy into planning a fun jam-packed week for our students. Each day is a different Spirit theme -- please encourage your kids to participate! Please see Ms. Gronau’s Principal’s Letter for the week’s schedule.
BATTLE T SHIRTS: As you know, Spirit Week concludes in the much-anticipated Battle of the Classes on Friday, December 23rd. Kids love the Battle each year and a great way to capture their enthusiasm is with a Battle of the Classes grade level t-shirt (each grade has a different color shirt). We have a great new design this year! Your HSA will be selling shirts during lunches this week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The shirts are $12 and not only feed the fun of the Battle of the Classes but also raise money for your HSA. It's a win-win! Quantities are limited so send your student to school with $12 cash or a check payable to MMS-HSA. Want to get in on the fun too? Volunteer to help sell the shirts! Click HERE for the Sign Up Genius.
HSA STAFF APPRECIATION LUNCHEON: The Staff Appreciation Luncheon is Monday, December 19th. Thank you so much to all of you who have already contributed. If you’d still like to help with either food or a monetary donations, please click HERE for the Sign Up Genius. Let’s show the MMS staff how grateful we are for everything they’ve done for our children all year!
SPIRIT WEAR: Woo hoo! The new MMS Spirit Wear is here, just in time for the holidays. Spirit Wear orders will be distributed after school on Wednesday, December 21st. If you ordered Spirit Wear please have your student visit the tables in the front of school on Wednesday to pick up your garb. Is your order a gift for your kids? Please contact Lynn Salort at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an alternate, more stealth pick-up.
PIE IN THE FACE: What’s better than an opportunity to “pie” a teacher or administrator while also raising funds to help St. Jude’s? Pretty much nothing! Please encourage your kids to purchase a pie and participate in this fun event sponsored by the MMS Make Life Kinder Club. “Pie-ing” happens on Thursday, December 22nd right after school in the cafeteria. The cost of a pie is a $5 donation to St. Jude’s. All donations should be handed to Ms. Miller in room 156 and the last day to purchase a pie is Tuesday, December 20th. Check out the list of teachers participating HERE.
