MAUE PTO's Travel Raffle
Our fall fundraiser kicks off September 17th! We will be raffling off a $3,500 vacation offered through Muse Magical Travel Company. MAUE kids will sell raffle tickets for $10 each from September 14th through the 28th. Tickets will also be available online at maueraffle.com. Money raised from this raffle will be used towards upgrades for our playground and school facilities. Packets with more information will be sent home through your child's backpack soon.
3rd Grade Canned Food Drive
Students will be collecting canned foods the week of September 10th for the Mississippi Food Network's Food for Families campaign. We are also looking for parents of all grades to donate empty boxes to pack the canned goods. Boxes of all sizes can be dropped off at the front office.
Guest Author Visit for 4th & 5th Grade
Jonathan Auxier is coming on September 24th to speak to our 4th and 5th grade classes about his book called Sweep: The Story of a Girl and her Monster. Books are on sale now until September 18th. Please click HERE to print order form. All order forms and money must be turned in to Mrs. Berry in the library on our before this date to get to come to the special book signing after the author presentation.
See You at the Pole
All parents, students and faculty are invited to See You at the Pole at 6:45 am on Wednesday, September 26th for a brief prayer before school. We will meet around the flagpole in front of the school. For more information on this global day of prayer, visit http://syatp.com/.
MAUE PTO has received a new Kroger account number for our Community Rewards Program. All parents who already had MAUE PTO set up as their community rewards partner with Kroger do not need to do anything, as Kroger linked all previous accounts. However, if you have never set up MAUE PTO as your community partner, please do so! Kroger is gracious enough to donate a portion of your grocery transactions to our school each quarter. And it does NOT affect your fuel points! Our new account number is RY106. At the bottom of the Kroger home page, click on Kroger Community Rewards to set this up.
We still have a limited number of T-shirts left over. If you would like to purchase one, please visit https://www.madisonavenueupperelementarypto.com/shop!
