PTO NEWS

  • Pre-order your 2016-2017 yearbook today! Find out all information here

  • Attention 6th Grade Parents! 

  • Registration is now open for irun4life! Find out all the details here.

  • Calling for volunteers! This spring, MMW will be starting a new after-school running club called irun4life. It is a weekly 8 week program that culminates in a 3K with other participating elementary schools. In order for this program to be a success, we will need adult volunteers. Ways to help can simply be picking up snacks, ordering T-shirts, or monitoring our jogging route. You DO NOT need to be a runner or even in shape! You can help as often as you want. Whatever you can offer, we will take! Volunteers will need to have clearances on file with irun4life.

    If you have any questions or can volunteer, please contact: Diane Gaw   email: welch@irun4life.com

  • Pretzel Day is coming on 4/21. Pretzels are $0.50 each and will be available before the start of school. See all pretzel days here.
