OPEN MESA POSITIONS

Thank you to everyone who was interested in joining our 2018/19 MESA Board!!  We will be voting in these new board members on Monday June 1 at our Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast in the Jordan/Jackson Library at 9:30.  We hope you can make it. (See flyer below)

We are looking for chairs/co-chairs for the following programs: 
Book Fair - Robinson (Fall and Spring)
Yearbook - Robinson and Jordan/Jackson
Box Tops - Robinson and Jordan/Jackson
Fall Food Drive - Robinson and Jordan/Jackson

We need to hit the ground running with these programs come September, so we would like to get our chairs/co-chairs set up before then.  Unfortunately if we do not find chairs/co-chairs for these programs, we may not be able to run them!  Please let us know if you can help!  Contact info@mesa4parents.org for more information.

3rd, 4th and 5th Grade Thursday May 31st 6:30 p.m. J/J Multipurpose Room

MESA has teamed up with Dr. Bob Morris, Ph.D of Wheaton College for this exciting night of
SCIENCE WITH DR. BOB!!

Why don't animals have wheels?  How can tiny chemicals be felt or seen? Science can help us answer these questions!  Come try experiments to decide what are the best ways for animals to move around. Come build rainbows and silly putty to figure out how molecules work together. From planets to people to pond water, come join Dr. Bob to see how science can help us understand the universe around us and within us.

This is a hands on make-and-take-home program that you and your child will love. What a great opportunity for you to engage with your child! 
 
Students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. *Please NO SIBLINGS!*

Yearbook Information

At Robinson, if you were not able to order a yearbook online and would like to, please send a check into school addressed to MESA for $25 and include your child's name and teachers name. This will secure a yearbook for your child. 

At Jordan/Jackson, we have been asked to let all J/J parents know that we are no longer taking payments for J/J yearbooks since our order has been placed. There will be a limited number of them available for sale in the office when the books come in. We will let you know when those are available.

For those who have ordered yearbooks, they typically are delivered the last week of school in June. 



Bookworms   

We just completed another successful week of Bookworms! Every student in Kindergarten and Grade 1 left school with a book he/she chose and a smile!  This is an early literacy program funded by MESA with books purchased through Scholastic Dollars earned at our Fall and Spring Book Fairs.

We would like to thank the AMAZING committee of parent volunteers --  Brittany Collins, Jennifer Winrow, Christine Gardosik, Stephanie Znoj, Lisa Beall, Jennifer Fontaine, Jen Hill, Sara Carnevale, Angela McBrine and Rachel Bailey who make this program run smoothly!
