Staff Appreciation Week: May 7th through May 11th

UPDATE: The Hospitality Committee would like to thank everyone who has generously signed up to contribute items for staff appreciation week.  We still need a few more sign ups - especially for Sweet Treats Day.  If you can bring in one dozen individually wrapped sweet treats, please us the sign up.  Also, don't forget to send in those gift cards.  They can go through back pack mail to Carter Kelsey's attention in Mrs. Robinson's class or you can label an envelope with my name (Sarah Kelsey) and put it in the PTO Treasurer's mailbox in the front office. Thank you.

Staff Appreciation Week is May 7th through May 11th and the PTO needs lots of help to make it a great one.  The Hospitality Committee has planned something special for every day of the week and could use your help.  Please review the accompanying sign up for opportunities to contribute baked goods, snacks, water, etc.  The sign up covers four different days during the week so please make of note of which day/event you sign up for.  We also still need about 15 gift cards to ensure that there are enough to go around. THANK YOU!

Bakers for PTO Hospitality Committee

Attention all cookie bakers.  Planning on baking holiday cookies? Can you add 2 dozen cookies to your list? If so, please consider signing up to contribute cookies to the PTO Hospitality Committee.  We are hoping to send each MLS staff person home with some cookies for the holidays.  Any type of small, individual treat works - cookies, brownies, bars, fudge, etc. Thanks!

Final Call For Yearbook Chair

If you have thought about offering support for the 2017-2018 yearbook, this is the final opportunity. PTO will be voting at the next meeting whether to offer a yearbook for this school year. If there are not volunteers to manage, the project will be omitted from this year’s activities. Please let us know immediately if you have an interest in co-chairing the 2017-2018 yearbook. There are folks available to support, but we need a leader or two to manage the project. 

Yearbook Volunteers

Calling all photographers.....planning is underway for the 2017-2018 MLS yearbook. Please save your best photos of MLS events, classroom activities, students and staff to contribute to the effort.

In addition, we are in need of a Chair or Co-Chairs to lead the yearbook committee. If you are interested in helping with the 2017-2018 yearbook, please contact the PTO Presidents at presidents@mlspto.org

MLS Spring Fundraiser

The MLS PTO is working to assemble the leadership team for the MLS Spring Fundraiser. This is always an exciting event for the school and contributes to the mission of the PTO in a significant way by raising funds for the Professional Development of our teachers and staff at MLS. If you have great ideas, energy and some time to contribute to this important event, please contact the PTO Presidents at presidents@mlspto.org"

3)         Classroom Volunteers! You can sign up in your child’s classroom to be a Room Parent who provides communication to the classroom parents from the PTO and teacher and arranges special events for class.

We love volunteers of all kinds at Meriwether. Whatever you can give is deeply appreciated!
