Greetings Middle School Parents and Guardians:

As May goes, so goes some additional reminders with many activities happening this week! Thanks for taking a minute to see how you can help.  

First, tomorrow (Tuesday) we are still in need of two playground volunteers to help monitor kids while the teachers are in a faculty appreciation lunch with Mr. Arnold. If you can help, please come to the Dining Hall by 12:05. Recess ends at 12:40pm. Email Ruth if you can help. 

Don’t forget we are providing breakfast for the MS Faculty as a part of the Appreciation Week on Friday. The signup is below if you haven’t yet contributed. Thank you everyone who has (and will!). 


And the coat drive is this Thursday, May 9 and Friday, May 10  

Spring is in the air and summer is around the corner–time to clean out the winter coats and dress code clothing that no longer fit and bring them to The Kids-4-Kids Coat drive! Collection bins will be located at LS/MS/US drop-off locations, and the bus circle, before and after school. ONLY winter coats, hats, gloves, and dress code clothing will be collected, in student sizes, at this time. The collected coats will be used in the fall for our Kids-4-Kids all school service project and the dress code clothing will be added to the Clothing Exchange Closet. Thank you!!

If you have any questions please contact Kimberly Allison, PACA Service, kimberlyga@mac.com.

Lastly, don’t forget the PACA Gala is this Saturday! Get your 80s Groove on from 7-11pm!
