MONTCLAIR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WEEKLY NEWSLETTER – DECEMBER 16, 2015
Mark your calendars now for the upcoming Family Science Night! Join the fun on Wednesday, January 13, 2016, 6-7pm, in the Multipurpose Room. There will be 11 engineering activities and challenges for families to enjoy together. Check out the event flyer at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2GE5mtG3vysS3o3OWkwTTlsajA/view?usp=sharing.
We also need about 6-7 parent volunteers. If you would like to volunteer to run a station, please contact Wonny Mullen.
While you shopping this holiday season, keep MES in mind. Take advantage of donations when purchasing online or in stores. There are a number of ways to help raise funds for our school, at no cost to you.
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way to support our school. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com. Please link your amazon account to our school at smile.amazon.com. To designate MES as your non-profit of choice, search for “Montclair Elementary PTA”, or 946186886, in the selection box.
If you shop at Lucky supermarket, please remember to use your SHARES card. You can pick up a SHARES card in the school office. Our school earns over $6,000 per year from the SHARES program. This is easy money for our school. Pick up a few extra SHARES cards and keep one in your car or shopping bag. Ask friends and neighbors to help out by using a SHARES card as well.
Another new, easy and free way to boost donations is BigPie. A number of Montclair Village merchants will donate a percentage of each purchase you make. Register at www.bigpie.com (click “Join BigPie”) and select Montclair Elementary as your non-profit. As you make purchases at participating businesses, inform the merchants that you want to apply your purchase to Big Pie, and they will donate to MES. Participating stores include: Pelago, A Great Good Place for Books, Art Loft Framing, Hallmark, Montclair Sports, and many others. Many Village restaurants and hair salons are participating, too. So shop local and help raise funds for MES!
