MPE Weekly Update June 17, 2015       

Last school store is TOMORROW! Please remember to send money. We have tons of great merchandise to sell that your children will love to use over the summer.

STACK THE CAPS--Wednesday, June 24, 2015 The last service opportunity this year--let's show that MPE Makes a Difference!  As we have done in the past, we will be collecting brand new caps to benefit Stack the Caps.  This charity began in 2008 at Camp Starlight in Starlight, Pennsylvania.  The event was inspired by Brielle Namer, a former MPE student as well as a camper and role model at the camp.  Sadly, she passed away from a very rare form of cancer. The caps are donated to children who have been afflicted with cancer.  We hold the Stack the Caps event and all the children from each grade level who’ve brought a cap in are able to place the cap on the dowel used to collect them.  We literally “stack the caps” one on top of another to see how many feet of caps have been donated.  If you’re able to contribute a NEW cap to our collection, know that they will be donated to a most worthy cause. Any questions, contact Keri Gorsky at

****Please bring in a NEW baseball cap that has a hole in the back (this way it can be stacked on the stick). These caps are going to cancer patients, so they may NOT have been worn before.

TOOL KITS It's time to order your school supplies for next year.  Please make sure to select the grade your child will be in next year to ensure you get the correct supplies.  Please use the link to order your kits.  The account number for MPE is 50073.  The last day to order is June 26th.  The kits will be delivered to your child's classroom on the first day of school.  The company that is providing the school supplies has a replacement program for many of the products such as binders and plastic folders.  If they break throughout the school year they will be replaced free of charge. Please contact Kara Baltuch with any questions.  kara_baltuch@yahoo
