Welcome Back!

School began again on Wednesday, August 27. Welcome to all students, teachers, staff, and families!

Find out what's going on at our school! Please sign up for the MX E-tree, by sending an e-mail to:

Sign Up for Farmigo

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

Order weekly online. No ongoing commitment, no sign up fee. Order only what you want (fruit, veggies, milk, eggs, cheese, meat, bread, pantry items) or order a traditional CSA produce box. Pick up is at 1:30 at the picnic tables near the garden each Wednesday. If you can't make that time, contact MX parent Becky Matthews at, and after hours pick up can be arranged at her home on Ellis St., very near MX.

Rolling Drop-Off

Parent volunteers are needed each week to help with Rolling Drop-Off. Please sign up to participate when your class is up. Guidelines for safety and set-up can be found here.

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.
