First priority, the MCN uses the donated funds to offer our students and families both educational and community building programs throughout the year. These take a big commitment from volunteers and are funded by your donations to make them happen! A few examples are Winter Art Gallery, STEAM Night, Outdoor Movie Night, Family Dance, Assemblies, Author visits, Art @ Lunch and Running Club. The MCN also works with the administration and MATES Board of Directors throughout the year to identify needs of the school and wish list items that we can donate funds toward or purchase. We were able to raise enough money last year to do so much for the school! This year we are happy to share that these requests have come in and we are excited to help our school in a variety of ways. We work closely with the school to ensure your donated money is used for items and projects that are requested from the MATES Board of Directors Committees and teachers. We value their planning and the goals they set for their programs and campus needs.
Look for our final year-end report at the General Membership Meeting in May.
Please watch our video that shares all of our memory-making events, inspiring assemblies and of course, the variety of ways your donations have helped the students and our school for 2016-17!
We improved our campus by eliminating the mud/dirt hazard outside the classrooms and replaced it with a clean, dry surface where the chess set is better used and kids have a place to be if they can’t go out on the field during recess.
We were able to donate 2 classroom sets of laptops on rolling charging carts for the upper grades.
Where we used to use black paper to cover the windows to control the light….
We have replaced the missing curtains with new blackout commercial grade curtains.
