IT'S AUCTION PROCUREMENT TIME!

MCS is actively preparing for the 2020 Knights Auction fundraiser. The theme this year is "Knights at the Carnival!" Scheduled on April 4, 2020! We are in urgent need of several volunteers to hit the streets and contact businesses asking for donations for the auction. Please contact the office at 360-794-8200 or email secretary@monroechristian.org right away if you can help!

Attached is a digital copy of the letter you can provide to businesses and the Procurement Form. Be sure to attach a copy of the form to the donated item, and leave a copy with the donor as their tax receipt. Thank you for helping to make this auction our best ever!

SERVICE OPPORTUNITY

Need service hours before registration time? We are still in need of Recess Duty volunteers for the following days:

  • Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday - for AM recess (10:00 - 10:15 AM)
  • Tuesday and Wednesday - for lunch recess (12:00 - 12:20 PM)
  • Tuesday and Wednesday - for PM recess (1:45 - 2:00 PM)

Every recess worked counts as one service hour! Please contact the office at (360) 794-8200 or email secretary@monroechristian.org , if you can help. The teachers GREATLY appreciate this support!

Also, your time contacting businesses to request auction donations counts! When you deliver the donated items, be sure to log your service hours. All hours worked prior to February 21 count toward your registration credit for 2020-2021 (after Feb. 21, hours will go toward the following school year). You can pick up letters and procurement forms in the office. Not sure where to start? Need suggestions of places to go? Just talk to the staff in the office. Help make the auction successful AND support local businesses - it's a win-win!

LOVE & LOGIC TIPS

Perseverance is the key to building grit. There is no doubt that kids who develop it will lead happier and more productive lives than those who don’t. Listed below are few “grit builders” with corresponding “grit stealers.”
Teaching perseverance isn’t complicated. It requires a willingness to allow kids to experience healthy challenges as they grow. It also requires that we let them see that they have what it takes to cope with life’s challenges.
