This event is the PTO's major fundraiser for the year. All proceeds from this event allow the PTO to help purchase supplies for the classrooms or underwrite programming in support of our children's learning. And this year a portion of the proceeds will be designated to help fund the extensive playground renovation that is currently in the planning stage. Bottom line: your kids will directly benefit (and you'll have fun along the way)!
We already have a lot of fabulous items to put on the auction tables. There is truly something for everyone - art projects from all of the classrooms, bake sale items, restaurant gift certificates, sports tickets & family outings. For a sneak peak of items, make sure to friend the PTO on Facebook. You can find the PTO at mohpto on Facebook.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Note From the School Nurse:
MITTEN BOARD ~ The mitten board is up. Each year our community supports families and children that are struggling. Wishes (or needs) are placed on a mitten and then displayed on the front lobby bulletin board. If you wish to participate, come take a mitten, purchase and wrap the item and return it to the gift box in the lobby with the mitten securely attached to the gift. All gifts should be returned no later than Friday, December 14. This will give me time to rename and sort all the gifts before they are given to the families. Thank you!
