Message from MESA President  


Greetings MESA Families!

Welcome to a new year of school and a new year of MESA!  I hope you all had a fun and relaxing summer.

September is an exciting time and we are looking forward to another great year!  As the Parent Group of Robinson and Jordan/Jackson, we would like to introduce ourselves and give you some idea of what we do behind the scenes. MESA provides services that enhance our children's everyday educational experience and strives to give parents a more direct voice in what happens at our school. We coordinate many programs that all the students enjoy, such as in school field trips, math and science nights, and book fairs as well as coordinate family activities including Halloween Bingo and movie and game nights!. We are able to do all these things through our fundraising activities throughout the year.

The success of MESA is dependent upon people who are enthusiastic about volunteering at our school. We have many committees that are active at different times of the year and require various levels of commitment.  Whatever your own level of flexibility, MESA always appreciates their parent volunteers, as do our teachers and staff. Keep in mind that by volunteering, you will get to enjoy interacting with the kids, become friends with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference.

Here's to a great year!

Jenn Walsh, MESA President


First General MESA Meeting

Wednesday September 16, 9:30am in the Robinson Cafeteria. 

Please, join us for the first meeting of the year in the Robinson Cafeteria. Here you can meet the board, get to know what we are up to, how you can get involved and  sign up for volunteering opportunities. Every little bit helps and enriches school experience for kids!

Children are always welcome. Refreshments will be served.


Kindergarten Social 

SAVE THE DATE 

Join us for our Kindergarten Social on Thursday September 17th at 4:00 pm.

MESA would like to invite our Kindergarten students and their families to a fun filled afternoon with The Toe Jam Puppet Band!

This free kindergarten-only event is a great way to get some giggles and meet other kindergarten families.  Performance by Toe Jam Puppet Band is a sure way to make everyone laugh! 

More info to follow!


Box Tops

We are looking forward to another successful Box Top year!  Box tops are a terrific way to raise money for our schools simply by purchasing the products you already buy.  Last year we raised $4,816 by collecting Box Tops for our schools! Please have your students bring in any Box Tops you have collected over the summer.  The Box Top collection boxes are already set up at the entrances to the Robinson and the Jordan/Jackson.  At the Robinson, we will also have collection boxes in each classroom and we will be continuing our Classroom Trophy contest.  

Want to help coordinate?  We are looking for one more person to help at Robinson.  Contact President@mesa4parents for more info.

Your 2015/16 Box Tops Team,
Yvette Politis, Mary Dalton and Kate Allen



Stop & Shop A+ Registration 
Another great way to support your school is Stop & Shop A+ School Rewards.  Participants of this program earn points with each purchase made using their Stop & Shop Card. At the end of each month the points earned are used in a calculation to determine your school's cash total, which is then automatically credited to your school's account.  Customers can support up to two schools to benefit from their A+ School Rewards that accrue.  

Note:  You do not have to re-register your card if you registered your card last year and would like to keep the same school designations (up to two schools).  If you would like to check that you are registered or register for the first time, please click the link HERE. 


Target REDcard

Register your REDCard at the link HERE and Target will donate 1% of all your purchases to the school of your choice.  Once you register and choose your school, you do NOT need to re-register each year.  

Thank you!
