Fall Fling on Saturday October 29th
Maryvale’s most fun FUNdraiser, The 13th Annual Fall Fling Silent Auction and Carnival, is Saturday, Oct 29th from 1-5 at Maryvale, RAIN OR SHINE.
This is a huge silent auction for the parents and a huge carnival for the kids.
Little toy trinkets that are cluttering your house are needed for our Grab Bags. Please send to school in a bag labeled “Anne Simcox, Fall Fling.”
We still need help to make the Fall Fling a success. Please consider volunteering for a Fall Fling Subcommittee. The subcommittee sign up lists can be downloaded in English and Espanol. You can return forms to Anne Simcox. Thank you for your help!
Volunteer Needed for Directory Update
The PTA needs one volunteer to update the directories for this school year. The job will involve deleting the previous 5th grade students, updating the current students, and adding the new students, Pre-K, and CAAP students. The job will also involve contacting last year’s sponsors to see if they will sponsor again. Because the directory is electronic, we don’t anticipate the need to solicit many sponsors. This job can be done from home. The goal is to get this completed by October 1, but it can be pushed back since it is already late into September. Please contact Karen Doswell at karendoswell (at) verizon (dot) net if you are able to help.
