Thanks to everyone for participating in our Fall Discount Card Fundraiser. We raised $8,000 for our school! The money will go towards making improvements on our playgrounds.
We are participating in Red Ribbon week in order to promote a drug-free lifestyle. Each day students and staff will dress according to a particular theme, such as Monday's "Team Up Against Drugs" day where we will wear sports team apparel.
One of our MBES families has a family member who is a part of the PMVPA (Piedmont Military Vehicle Preservation Association). The organization donated a new American Flag for our school flag pole. We were honored that they came dressed in uniform with military vehicles to present the American Flag to our school.
Running Club started on October 4th and it's open to all 3rd-5th grade students. The club meets on the first two Wednesdays of each month. If you want to join, please fill out the application and return it to Christa Graff. We are also welcoming parent volunteers to help out.
Our fall PTA fundraiser is underway. Students are selling $10.00 discount cards that feature local businesses. The cards have 3 tear-off coupons for Jersey Mikes, East Coast Wings and Sweet Frog. These savings alone, will more than pay for the card.
