The MMS PTO Fall Festival committee chairs are so excited about this year's Fall Festival.  Some booth changes have been made to make this the best Fall Festival yet!  For those of you new to the school here is a quick rundown on how it works!


Each class is assigned 2 booths.  We ask that parents sign up to work at least one 30 minute shift.  If you want to do more GREAT! If you can't or do not want to work a shift you can "buy a volunteer" for $10.  We recruit a sorority at UF to work these shifts.  To sign up go here.  You can select which time slot you want to work or simply sign up to "Buy a Volunteer" and we will bill your Tuition Account.

Along with the booth sign-up you can also help sponsor some of the things we have to pay to rent (inflatables, lights, petting zoo, etc...).  All sponsors will be recognized by having their family or business name on a sign next to the booth! Thank you to those who have already signed up for a sponsorship:

Dr. Cody Goslinga / Park Avenue Dental
Long Family
Jaszczak Family
Meghan Bustamante
Sitaram Family
Berky Family
Mitchell Family


All monies raised will go to the PTO account. In the past the money raised has helped with the improvements on the preschool/kindergarten playground as well as smart boards in Ms. Anita's and Mr. Richard's classrooms!
