Scholastic Book Fair
Once again, the Scholastic Book Fair was a great success! We were very pleased to see so many enthusiastic children and parents. This school event could not have happened without our chief organizer Ilona Kuligowska and her committee as well as the many volunteers, staff, and teachers.
Thank you all for your support!
Funds raised during the event will be used to support the Library, classrooms and other literacy programs such as Guided Reading. Many of our divisions have benefited from the Classroom Wish List program this year. Thank you all for participating and your generous donations.
We expect to see the first shipment from the Scholastic Book Fairs to arrive this week for those who placed orders .
See you all next year!

The 2016-2017 MPAC Directory is on the hotlunches.net website this week. This year in an effort to be environmentally responsible, we will NOT be printing off individual copies. The full school directory, individual class listings and the babysitting list can be found on the main screen after logging in (thus maintaining privacy for family information) and can be printed from your home computer if desired.
Information can be updated through the Profile tab in hotlunches.net. Updates with new students will be announced either through the class rep or on the MPAC weekly update.
