The next General PTA meeting will be on May 19th at 7pm. Please make plans to attend. We need a quorum to elect the new Board of Directors. It will be Volunteer Appreciation Night and Election Night for the 2015-2016 school year Board of Directors. We will take a tour of the Giving Garden and a Master Gardener will be on hand to answer your gardening questions. There will also be door prizes.
Thank You to the parents who volunteered to help the future MCES Kindergarten students with activity centers at Kindergarten Orientation last week. The attendance was huge and thank you for helping to make the students first experience at MCES a memorable one.
This week is Teacher Appreciation week for Tracks 1 and 2. Flyers went home to those tracks last week with ideas on how to show your appreciation.

Vendor tables will be new at the Carnival this year. If you are an independent consultant for a home based company, consider "purchasing" a vendor table at the Carnival to sell your products. Tables will be "sold" for a donation to the silent auction or for a flat fee of $20.00. One consultant per company will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. A few tables have already been reserved as a result of our Facebook announcement last week. You must provide your own table, set up, staffing. If you are interested, email AnnMarie Marchese at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of your company. Emails will be answered in the order they are received.
Carnival Book Swap is coming...
Last year at our Spring Carnival, the Book Swap was a huge success! Our goal for this year is for every child to leave the Carnival with a book. Here is how your child can get a book at Carnival on May 9th:
Bring a gently used book to Carnival to exchange for one that's "new to them." It's that easy!
If you have a gently used book your child is ready to part with, please bring it to Carnival and visit us at the book swap table. We will begin with a large selection of donated books, so come anytime during the event to find a great book!
May 14th and/or 15th- EOG Proctors are needed for Track 1. Please contact Ms. Woodard at email@example.com or Ms. Grode at firstname.lastname@example.org
MCES also has donation needs. If you have items around the house you need to get rid of, consider donating them to the school.
Clothes- The front office is in need of clothes to give out to students when there is an accident at school and parents are not able to come in and bring clean clothes. Donations of the following items for both boys and girls would be appreciated and can be dropped off at the front office:
Flip Flops- boys and girls all sizes
