What an incredible week we’ve had. It has been wonderful to see so many Mason-Rice students and families enjoying the warm weather and taking part in Walk to School Week! Keep up the great work and walk this morning…we will have cider and giveaways at the main entrance for all who participate. Because of all of you, we helped to improve our air quality, reduced traffic congestion, gained social time with friends and family, got some exercise, and helped to foster continued growth of a safe and sustainable community! Thank you to Barbara Nestle for organizing the Walk to School Week and to all the volunteers that helped make it a success.
Thank you to all who contributed to our Dues Campaign in the last week. Because of your support, we have now raised $28,910 or 70% of our goal! The money you give ensures our PTO can continue to fund all the amazing programs our children enjoy during the school year. In addition to Creative Arts and Sciences Programming, our PTO helps to subsidize the transportation costs for the many field trips our children attend. We offer classroom support to our teachers, and provide them with reimbursement for needed school supplies that help to further enrich our children’s experience.
But we’re not done yet! Getting to 100%, and raising the final $11,090 takes all of us giving in the next few days! We are hoping to close the dues campaign by next week. If you haven’t had the opportunity, please take the time to contribute. So far 33% of families have contributed. It is our hope all families will contribute at whatever level they can. Whether you give $10, $100 or more, we appreciate everyone’s effort. Remember all donations are tax deductible.
