Mabry Minute for Week of 10/29/17
Message from the PTA President
I am so excited to announce the amazing numbers from our Fall fundraiser. We had over 540 students collect donations at all levels and every dollar helped reach the goal and  over 1,000 attended the event!
 A huge thanks to all volunteers, families, community members and staff who helped raise over $77,000! Especially Cristina Blunt and Nelson Bosque who stepped up to organize the event for a second year in a row!
Please continue the support at the next PTA General Membership Meeting Thu, Nov 2nd at 6pm in the cafeteria. School-aged children can be dropped off at the pavilion with Coach Broff for supervised play. As always, spirit sticks for families in attendance! 
Melissa MacKinnon Mabry PTA President  
Candy Buy Back!
It's that time of year again! Dr. Goodnight will be buying back Halloween candy on Fri, Nov. 3rd from 7:15 to 8:00am in the front of Dale Mabry Elementary. He will also buy back candy at his South Tampa office Nov. 1st thru Nov. 2nd 8 - 5 and November 3rd 8-12.
He will turn that candy into cash for you and send the candy to Operation Gratitude. They send it to men and women overseas in care packages. So send some smiles to our U.S. Military and put some cash in your hand at the same time. For more information on Operation Gratitude click here.
Candy buy back $1 per pound limit up to $5. You may donate more if you would like.
Thank you to Mabry Business Partner
