Welcome Back!

Walk and Roll Day:
Wednesday, Sept. 3

THIS Wednesday is the first Walk and Roll Day of the new school year! Join the fun by hopping on your bike, rolling on the bus, or lacing up your sneakers to get your kids to school. And, if you drive, park a block or two away and walk the rest - you'll enjoy the benefits of walking and reduce congestion around the school.

Stop by the Walk & Roll table near the Ellis Street Gate from 7:45-8:05 am before school. We'll have small treats to give out, some stickers, and some music.

See you on the school yard!
Sofia, Jessica, & Nate

Sign Up for Farmigo

Order fresh, local, organic food online with Farmigo and pick it up on the MX playground every Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 pm. Ten percent of weekly proceeds goes directly to the MX PTA, and last year we raised $2,500 for MX!

Contact Becky Matthews at, if you have questions.

Back to School Night

Thursday, Sept. 4th is Back to School Night, from 7-8 pm. Parents and guardians will meet in the MX auditorium at 7 pm for a short presentation by Principal Hunt, then move to their child's classroom to meet with their child's teacher. Adults only if possible. Children must remain in the classroom if accompanying their parents.

One More Month

The "One More Month Campaign" invites all families to contribute One More Month of what they budgeted for preschool, childcare, or summer camp.

Money raised by the PTA is essential to funding our school's enrichment curriculum (art, gardening, music, drama, dance, field trips, and performances). To read more, and to contribute, click here.

Contact Anna Brock ( and Michelle Oram ( if you have any questions.

Items/Help Needed

for the Summer Readers Pizza Party on Friday, Sept. 19. All students who completed their Summer Reading Contract will be participating. We need several things: families to send food (veggies, fruit or desserts); flowers from your garden; napkins, plates, and plastic utensils; a plastic pitcher for water; and helpers for set-up (1-1:30), serving (1:30-2), and clean-up (2-2:30).

Contact Lily Monti to volunteer ( or 326-3132) if you have any questions.
