PTA Nominating Committee Volunteers Needed

We need four members to be on our Nominating Committee to nominate a slate of candidates to be our 2018-2019 PTA Officers – President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. The committee needs to present the candidates at the April PTA meeting. Please email communications@maryvalepta.org if you want to volunteer or need additional information.

Goodbye Maryvale Carnival Chair and Volunteers Needed

We need a chairperson to lead the preparations for our Goodbye Maryvale Carnival. This will be a sendoff to our old building before we move to the holding school for two years. This is not intended as a fundraiser so logistics will be less complicated than that of the Fall Fling. Please email communications@maryvalepta.org if you want to volunteer or need additional information.

International Night on 3/14

Join us on March 14, 2018 from 6:30 pm to 8:15 pm for one of Maryvale’s favorite events of the year! We will turn Maryvale into an international festive market place!

We are seeking families that would like to have a table to represent your country. Be sure to wear your native attire and bring pictures and items that represent your country. Serving free samples of food is always a crowd pleaser.

In order to host this event, we need to have a minimum of 15 families signed up. If you would like to participate, don’t delay. Please complete the registration form and email to all5@kingsleysonline.com.
