SHORELINE COUNCIL PTA FOOD AND GIFT DRIVE
Food & Teen Gift Drive to begin November 30th – December 11th, 2015.  The purpose of this drive is to provide quality food & gift support to Shoreline School District families needing assistance this holiday season.  We rely on your contributions of non-perishable food items and teen gift cards to make this special event a success!  MP’s assigned food item is canned soup/meals.  Look for detailed fliers coming home with your student soon!

MP VARIETY SHOW AUDITIONS
Can your student sing? Dance? Perform in an original skit? Do you have a magician in your home? Would your student like to emcee a show?
If the answer is yes, the Meridian Park Elementary Variety Show auditions are scheduled at 3:45pm on December 8th and December 10th in the Music and Band Rooms. Auditions are open to all ages. We want to see another great Variety Show on January 9th at Shorewood High School Theater with our Meridian Park students!
Be aware that the audition schedule is created in advance of these audition dates. In order to be able to audition, all participating students must complete a Variety Show Audition Request Form, which includes parent consent (signature) and contact information.   Completed forms must be turned into the MP office by December 2nd.
We hope to see a lot of acts try out!

FROM MR. T
Despite the crazy weather, it was a great week at MP.  Your students are amazing self-managers and scholars.  This Thanksgiving, we are grateful for our wonderful families.  Please read together, play games, and take a long walk outside together.  See you soon – Mr. T
