What a fun week for all of our Mason-Rice families. Halloween night gave us the perfect weather for our costumed-kids. If your children have extra treats, please drop off your candy in the donation box in the Mason-Rice lobby by next Friday.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Our Dues Campaign is still short of our $40,000 target. Thank you to the 166 families that have helped raise $37,050! We are 93% percent of the way to our goal, BUT WE NEED ALL OF YOU TO GET THERE! Currently only 47% our families have contributed. Please give any amount you are comfortable giving and we can reach 100% participation by the end of the month. Please contribute using the form sent home today and return to the school in the lobby or click here to donate today.
Thank you to Leslie Ziarko Valera and Lauren Engel for coordinating Picture Day today, including scheduling class picture times and organizing volunteers to make sure all of our kids give their best smile. Thank you to the parent volunteers who will help Picture Day run smoothly.
Thank you to all of our community members who help us raise money through our Amazon shopping program. This year we are trailing the participation numbers from previous years and want to remind you to click-through to Amazon from our PTO website. Click the Amazon button located at the top right of the page and a portion of your shopping total will go directly to Mason-Rice. Please make sure your browser’s ad-blocker if turned off if you are unable to view the button.
We are starting to plan for this year’s online auction that will go live in mid January. The on line auction is the 2nd largest of our 5 fund raisers and we rely on the generous donations and volunteer work of our parents to make it a success. Please read below for additional details and to learn how you can help. We thank you for any help you can give to make this a successful auction year and help support all the PTO does.
Tuesday, November 7 is election day, and the annual 5th Grade Election-Day Bake Sale will take place. For all Mason-Rice parents and caregivers, the school will open 10 minutes early and delicious goods will be on sale downstairs near The Center. Bring cash and accompany your child into school before heading to the Bake Sale! More details below.
We wish all of you a nice weekend. As always, send us an email if you have questions, suggestions or comments.
