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 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 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.
