MPE Executive Board needs you!!!! Come join the PTA Executive Board for the 2015-2016 school years! Positions are open to all parents who would like to make a difference in our school. Whether you are a veteran parent or a parent of your first kindergartner, the PTA is seeking volunteers to become involved on our Executive Board. Contact Gwen Samuels for questions. Please see attachment for details!

Jacqueline Davies visit has been rescheduled for May 27.  There are still some extra books that will be sold, as her visit gets closer. If you have any additional questions please contact Beth Zoller at

FIELD DAY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!!- TUESDAY JUNE 2nd-  PLEASE COME HELP OUT & SEE YOUR CHILDREN IN ACTION.  Field Day is a great day where all grades spend the morning outdoors moving through various age appropriate stations cheering each other on.  There are 2 shifts, 8:45-10:15, and 10:00- 11:15. Pick one or sign up for both!  We need parent volunteers to help out at each station to make this event a tremendous success. Please email Leslie Levitt or Paige Hershkin if you are interested in volunteering for this exciting day @ MPE! Or you can fill out a form to volunteer here.  

Save the Date June 5th - Join us for an Indoor Movie Night! Come for a movie and popcorn with your friends and help us raise funds for MPE's Build Our School Committee. More details to follow.   Thanks! 

BoxTops  MPE - this is our last BoxTops contest of the 2014-2105 year.  We need you to keep clipping as many BoxTops as you can before the contest deadline of June 10th. We have already raised more than $1000 this school year, can we make it to $1500??  We definitely can, but need your help - so please keep clipping and sending in your BoxTops to school labeled with your child’s teacher’s name.   Only one class will be the last BoxTops contest winner of this school year rewarded with extra recess time.  And as an extra reward, if any single class collects and sends in more than $100 in BoxTops, they will also win a special class snack (we will plan with teacher based on class needs).  Good luck MPE!!

Have ideas for ASE (After School Enrichment)? The program needs you! The PTA is currently seeking new ASE chairs for next school year. Chairs who volunteer now have the added benefit of observing the current spring session and learning from this year's chairs. If you have any questions about the chair responsibilities, please contact Laura Goren

ATTENTION ALL ART APPRECIATION VOLUNTEERS:  Please remember to put in for any supplies you have purchased for your presentations.  Attach your receipts  to a PTA Reimbursement Form located in the main office, and you will be reimbursed.  Also, please remember to return any folders you have borrowed back to the Art Files.  Thanks for volunteering!
