SEVENTH GRADE STUDENTS GOING ON THE SOUND TO SEA TRIP NEXT WEEK SHOULD TURN IN THEIR PERMISSION SLIPS AND COMPLETED WAIVERS THIS WEEK BEFORE THEY LEAVE.
Last year’s Halloween Party was attended by over 300 students! It is impossible to pull off this kind of event without volunteers.

2. Phoenix Fund Drive – DONATE TODAY!!
Did you know that $8,000 of what is raised for the Phoenix Fund is used to send our teachers to the IB training that sets our school apart from other IB schools in the state? Many IB schools only have one IB-trained instructor for each subject. It has been the commitment of our PTSO and Dr. Nutting to send EVERY teacher at Mount Mourne to IB training. This is a key component for creating that IB environment and culture that makes our school so special.
 
PLEASE SEND IN YOUR TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION THIS WEEK!

3. Turn in your BOX TOPS!
It’s time to turn in those Box Tops for Education that you’ve been clipping and saving! There is a collection box outside of the Media Center. Please have your student drop off your family’s box tops in a sealed ziploc baggie BY OCTOBER 21!
4. Phoenix Luncheon – November 14

Mark your calendars now! The PTSO will be hosting its first Phoenix Luncheon on Monday, November 14 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Trump National Charlotte in the Lakefront Ballroom.
