Also, as many of you know, MEPTO is incredibly
fortunate to have the support of so many businesses and organizations in
our community. From event sponsorship to in-kind donations to auction
items and more, we're humbled by the generosity of our town (and
beyond!). That's why this year MEPTO will present its first-ever MEPTO Community Partner Award! We
hope this annual award will recognize those in our community who go
above and beyond to support our elementary schools. We'll announce this

Now, on to the updates...
The Basket Raffle is Coming!
This year's Basket Raffle & Ice Cream Social is scheduled for Friday, May 6 from 6:30-8:15 p.m. at Medway High School.
Remember, each classroom will be assigned a fun theme (think
Lego, Movie Night, Red Sox, etc.) and families are asked to consider
donating a small item related to the theme to add to the class basket.
On the evening of the Basket Raffle, children can purchase raffle
tickets to try and win their favorite baskets. Last year, this event
raised nearly $8,000 for our schools! Click here to find your classroom's theme!
Oh, and there is free ice cream for all families too, as our treat to you.
Flyers will be going home in backpacks soon with information on your child's classroom theme and other important details.
you expressed interest at the beginning of the school year in
volunteering for either of these events, you'll be hearing from one of
our volunteer coordinators soon. If you didn't sign up but would like to
help out, please email Laura Mullen at firstname.lastname@example.org
