Phoenix Fund Drive – DONATE TODAY!!
Did you know that the NCGA only budgets for $15/year/student for textbooks and online subscriptions? This is one of the reasons our Phoenix Fund is so important! We are budgeting $10,000 to be spent for online subscriptions to websites that our teachers are planning to use in and out of class. It is vital that we meet our goal!

PLEASE SEND IN YOUR TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION THIS WEEK!

Hey Mount Mourne families! We hope you’ve all had a great first week back. The PTSO is busy planning fun events for our students and families throughout the fall and is running our biggest (and hopefully ONLY!) fund raiser for this year.

Here’s what you need to know this week:

Remember, the BEST way to stay up-to-date with the PTSO is on our website:  www.mmptso.org
 
1. Phoenix Fund Drive
2. General Assembly Meeting/Principal’s Coffee
3. Spirit Wear
4. Fall Social & Family Festival
5. Text Updates from the PTSO
6. Amazon Smile
 
*****
 
1. Phoenix Fund Drive
Every year our school faces a shortfall from the state and the county in the budget provided to meet our student’s instructional needs. The way Mount Mourne School continues to be THE #1 MIDDLE SCHOOL IN THE CHARLOTTE REGION is thanks to the support of our families. Our goal this year is to raise $37,400. That’s a little more than last year because we’ve done away with selling discount cards and attraction books.

Please send in your donation in the envelope provided in your child’s Open House folder OR

2. PTSO General Assembly Meeting and Principal’s Coffee
Please join us tomorrow morning, Wednesday, September 7 at 8:45 a.m. in the Media Center. We will be reviewing and voting on the proposed PTSO budget for the 2016-17 school year.  This is a great opportunity to speak with Dr. Nutting and learn how to become involved in your child’s middle school education experience. Light refreshments and coffee will be served.

3. Spirit Wear
Get your hands on one of our hot new designs! The next deadline to order your Simply IB T-shirts, awesome Dry-Fit Tees, gorgeous embroidered hoodies, and PE-approved sweat pants is September 30. Order forms are available in the Main Office OR
