MBE PTA Gift To School Reminder

MBE PTA Gift To School 2019

The Meadow Brook Elementary PTA is fortunate to once again have funds available to fund one-time Gift to School grants*.

We would like to have input from our parents, teachers and staff members as to how these funds should be spent.

If you have a request, please complete the attached form and return it to the PTA President Mailbox in the school office by Friday May 10th or email it to ptameadowbrookelementary@gmail.com no later than Sunday May 12th.

The PTA board will hold a preliminary review of the proposals at its May executive board meeting.

The proposals will be presented, along with the board’s recommendations, for discussion at the PTA meeting on Wednesday, May 15th.

Final selection and approval of proposals will take place at the Tuesday, June 4th PTA meeting. Please note, the PTA’s priorities lay in helping all of Meadow Brook’s students.

Therefore, greater weight will be given to proposals for items/projects that benefit the entire building.

*These funds will be available for use in the 2019-20 school year.

Box Tops For Education Update

A big thank you to all who have turned in Box Tops.

Thanks to you, in December, our PTA will receive a check from Box Tops For Education in the amount of $803!

We still have time to earn more money for Meadow Brook.

Watch for the December/January collection sheet (included in this newsletter and sent out with the Message from the Meadow.  

The next due date will be January 31st.

However, you may turn in your Box Tops at any time and you don’t need to glue or tape them to the collection sheet.

Just place them in a Ziploc bag and don’t forget to include your child’s name and teacher.

We will not be conducting a book give-away in January due to the holidays.

Any child who submits any number of Box Tops in December or January will be entered into the book drawing in February. 

Keep on clipping!
