Charleston Wrap Fundraiser Extended


Big thank you to everyone who placed their orders!

Our goal for Charleston Wrap Fundraiser is $25,000 for the 2014/15 school year. So far we raised only $6,500. We need to make A LOT more money! We are extending Charleston Wrap Fundraiser through Friday October 3rd.

Please help us out to fund in-class visits from local museums, field days, one book one grade, technology and classroom supplements for Robinson and Jordan Jackson schools. 

While we try to add additional popular fundraising tools to help reach our goals, we are still looking to have a GREAT response to this fundraiser to support our kids and our schools.  Please consider this as you choose your purchases and share the catalog info with family and friends.  Catalog is available online too, at www.charlestonwrap.com.

Really don't need wrap, chocolate or fun gadgets?  We enthusiastically welcome direct tax-deductible donations to MESA!  You can find our donation button on the left side bar of this newsletter or HERE.


Thank You For Supporting MESA's Fall Fundraiser!

The School Council is an advisory board to the principal that meets at least four times per year to assist in the review of the school budget and the Student Handbook and to help formulate the school improvement plan.  

This week during curriculum night you have an opportunity to vote for School Council.

One Book, One Grade Program
Book "Wonder" for 5th Grade 

Get ready for the largest J/J book club ever! MESA has purchased the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio for every 5th grade student to keep, as part of the One Book One Grade program. Throughout October, students will be reading Wonder at home, and may also participate in some exciting activities during school focused on the book's theme of "choosing kindness."

The books will be distributed to the classrooms on October 1st. If you would like to help with the delivery of books, or with other program activities, contact Stenni Shanteler and Stephanie Moore at jj@mesa4parents.org.
