Cougar Cash Fundraiser Information

Instead of engaging in fundraising that only shares a percentage of the proceeds, we’ve opted for a direct-donation process as our primary fundraising tool… your no frills contribution will go 100% towards the kids, staff, and their programs. It’s as simple as that! Please contribute and be a part of our success! Your donation helps the PTA cover the cost of programs at Maryvale that are not paid for by the state or district. Please see this letter for details and instructions on how to donate.

Box Tops Contest Through 11/1

A new year has begun, and so has a new Box Tops contest. You should have received the form this week in your child’s folder, but even if you don’t, you can always put Box Tops in a plastic bag or an envelope. Please include your child’s grade – the grades with the highest numbers submitted by November 1st will get a sweet treat!

Please leave your box tops here:


Wipes for Art Class Needed

Ms. Kang, who teaches art to K-5 in the portables does not have a sink. She would appreciate donations of wipes (baby wipes, not disinfectant wipes) for students to clean their hands after they paint.

Please send donations via your classroom teacher, and with a note on the bag saying “For Ms. Kang” to make sure they get to the right place.

Photo Day Volunteers Needed 11/5

Photo day will be Monday November 5 and we will need four volunteers to help the photographers with the students. We need two volunteers for each session. The first session will be 9:45 am to 12:45 pm and the second session will be 12:45 pm to 3:30 pm. Each volunteer will receive a free photo package. Please contact communications@maryvalepta.org if you can help.
