MMS Monthly E-Newsletter |  December 2015
From the Co-Directors:
As we head toward the new year, we would like to take a moment to express our appreciation for our school community.  We feel so fortunate to come to school each day to experience the children's joy, the expertise of our amazing staff and the incredible support and encouragement from our MMS families. 

We look forward to the year ahead and the many gifts it will bring!

Jennifer and Suzanne

  • We are still looking for someone to help with building lunchbox shelves for upper elementary.  Please contact Jennifer or Suzanne for details.
  • We are still looking for an oval rug to create a floor work space in the art room.  If you have a gently used rug you can donate, please contact us.
  • Our Plus Program is gearing up for cold weather and indoor play.  If you happen to be cleaning out over the break and have any unwanted board games, jigsaw puzzles (complete sets, in good condition) or craft supplies, we would love to have them.  The children enjoy Scrabble, Monopoly, Operation, checkers, and more!  Please contact Karen Kelly with any questions (304.342.7870 or 304.395.9410).
