What’s New with PTA?

Hello MFIS parents and teachers! At our last PTA meeting, our MFIS parent in charge of the Boosterthon took us through everything it takes to put on this important fundraiser. It’s a lot of work, but it’s so important for the school, and the kids really get into it! After the meeting, the kids who attended all huddled around the leaderboard in the main hallway to see which classes had the most students registered 🙂 Thanks to everyone who participated! 

Next week Monday, January 23, we are in need of volunteers to help organize and deliver the boosterthon prizes for students. If you’re interested please sign up for a time slot here https://signup.com/go/FAEeskd. From 9:00-11:00, the PTA will also be serving coffee and hosting a parent chat in room 121 – a great opportunity to find out what’s happening at the school and connect with fellow parents. MFIS apparel will also be available to check out and purchase.

The MPS Enrollment fair is Saturday, February 4th from 9:00 – 12:00 at North Division High School. We’re looking for MFIS parents to help tell incoming students and parents all about MFIS. If you’re interested, please email mfispta@gmail.com. Our funding is linked to enrollment so we really want to encourage students and parents to choose our wonderful school!

Our school Mardi Gras celebration (the evening of Thursday, February 16th) will be here before we know it. We’re so excited to be putting on an in-person event this year! It takes lots of volunteers and great ideas to make this a really excellent party, so if you’d like to help out, please send an e-mail to mfispta@gmail.com.

Our next PTA meeting is Thursday, February 9th @ 6:00 pm. 

Being a PTA member is a great way to stay informed about MFIS happenings, and a great place to share your ideas, questions, and energy!
