Fall UN-Fundraiser

Extended! There is still time to donate.
DONATE HERE:

We are more than halfway to our goal, but not where we need to be *yet* to be able to support all the programs we'd like to do for the children this year!  Nothing to sell, nothing to buy, just an easy tax write off while supporting MESA! Be sure to ask your employer if they will match your donation and share this link with your family and friends that may want to support your child or children.

Thank you for supporting MESA!

Box Tops News
 
ROBINSON NEWS:  Congratulations to Mrs. Gobeille's class for winning the Traveling Trophy for the month of September with 299 Box Tops.  The Robinson students turned in 3,575 Box Tops ($375.50) for the month of September.  Keep bringing your Box Tops in through October 31st to see who will win the Traveling Trophy for the month of October! 

JORDAN/JACKSON NEWS:  Please continue to send in your Box Tops and have your student place them in the Box Tops receptacles at the East and West entrances.  Every Box Top helps! 

Box Top Tips:  Please do not send in any expired Box Tops and cut around the pink dotted lines -- this saves our Box Top coordinators tons of time!  At the Robinson, if you have more Box Tops than fit on the worksheets (10), please place them in a baggie with your teacher's name on them.  
 
Thanks for your support of the Box Top program and keep clipping!

iCARE Reading Volunteers Needed

The iCARE Disability Awareness program is looking for volunteers who can read books about special needs to all the classrooms in the preschool and elementary schools to help teach our typically developing kids about their special-needs peers. If you are interested in volunteering, it can be very rewarding and takes as little as half an hour of your time.

Please contact Kim Piro. Email kimpiro20@gmail.com or call 508-339-1409.
Readings start in October and go through December at all three schools.

Thank you!!!
