MPE Weekly Update December 17, 2014  

School store is TOMORROW! Please remember to send money in with your child; there is great merchandise to purchase.  Kindergarten parents, your child WILL be able to make a purchase TOMORROW at the school store. Please remember to send them in with money.

ASE Online Registration for Afterschool Enrichment Winter session is now OPEN through Friday Dec 19 at 9pm!  Classes start the week of January 26 (sports classes start the week of February 9 due to the Whittle being in the small gym) and run for 8 weeks (sports classes for 6 weeks).  For those who have not tried ASE, it is an easy way to get your child involved in a new activity, meet new friends and support the PTA.  All proceeds benefit our school!

Remember, there is NO parent volunteer commitment required (although we welcome your help!) and NO need to transport your child!   All activities conveniently start after school right at MPE.  Children participating in ASE go directly to the small gym or music room for a supervised snack period and then are taken to their classes.  Dismissal is at 3:50 pm at the front door of the school.  If your child stays for YMCA aftercare, our instructors will take them to aftercare when the class is over.   Click here for class descriptions and to register.  Please note there is an error on the registration form.  The cost for Tennis is $125, not $140.  We apologize for the error.  Any Questions?  Email Samantha Linsky, or Sarah Aronow -
