Fall Carnival Volunteers: Calling all volunteers! We need lots of help make the Fall Carnival great. The event is on Friday, October 26, from 6-8 pm. It’s a ton of fun, and we break up your time in “shifts” so you can spend time with your kids at the event. Jobs include working a carnival game, the raffle table, craft table, face painting, set-up and clean-up. Click HERE to sign up on-line, or e-mail Julie Reinhardt at Thank you!!!

Fall Carnival Cake Walk! Another way to help with this event is to bring a dessert for the Cake Walk. Smaller or portioned desserts are great, but all are appreciated! Desserts can be delivered to the cafeteria stage between 4-6PM.

The MPPTSA Annual Campaign kicks off this week. We are raising money to support our students, teachers, and staff through grants, scholarships, special events, art curriculum, and much more. Click HERE to watch a video about how much we love the MPPTSA! Look for green envelopes in your student’s take-home folder to submit a check or cash payment, or click HERE to donate online. Any amount is appreciated!

Have you been turning in your Box Tops for Education?  Last year, the Box Tops turned in by MP families earned our school over $600!   Many certificates expire November 1st, so please check the top of your packaged foods and household products to see if they have a 10-cent pink & white “Box Tops for Education” certificate. If they do, cut out the certificates, and turn them in to the “Box Tops for Education” box in MP’s main lobby!   A list of products commonly having certificates can be found HERE .  A big shout out to Avery, Campbell, Daston, Hudson, Kevin, Oliver, Ruby, Thomas, Wyatt and all of the other amazing MP Cheetahs who have been turning in their Box Tops!  Thank you!
