Nourishing Noggins Seeking Donors & Volunteer Groups To Fill Bags!

 We are looking for volunteers to take on the weekly food bag preparation through the end of the school year. We are looking for individuals or various groups (Girls/Boy Scouts, Y! Guides, sports teams, etc.) to buy/donate and pack food for one week.  The Nourishing Noggins program will cover the cost of remaining food items if your group cannot donate all the items that go into the weekly bags of if you've signed up as a individual, reiumburse you for the groceries you purchase for the food bags (groceries cost < $150). More info and sign-ups are HERE.

Guidelines for Staying Home When Sick:

 

The best thing you can do is keep your children home when sick. This will help stop the spread of illness to other children and teachers. Keep them home when they show any of these symptoms:

  • fever of 100 degrees F or higher
  • vomiting, nausea and/or diarrhea
  • headache and chills
  • red, watery eyes with yellow drainage
  • sore throat
  • lack of appetite
  • fatigue

REMINDERS: 

  • Children should stay home until they have been naturally without fever for at least 24 hours
  • Please do not give children fever-reducing medication and then send them to school 

 


 

 

Box Tops are exchanged for free money for the school! Your kids collected have collected almost 5000 box tops this school year and brought in over $500! 

 

Print out this list of products where you can find Box Tops, and encourage your kids to keep collecting!

 

You can also print out this sheet where they can keep track of what they collect.

 

There is a pink lego box tops bin at the MPE front entrance (see pic above) where they can drop the Box Tops off!
