Thank you to everyone who attended and purchased books from our Monster Book Fair! Your support directly benefits the Media Center and making improvements to our library. A BIG Shout out to Emily Gardner and her hard working volunteers! Without Emily, this fundraiser would not have been such a huge success. Emily put in countless hours and was there everyday and every family event. Thank you so much Emily! You Rock!
Have you seen our latest fundraiser? We have has partnered with OneHope wines from now until October 31, 2015 to raise money for our organization. ONEHOPE Wine is a wine label produced by Rob Mondavi, Jr. out of Napa and every bottle makes an impact by donating profits to partner nonprofits. Our PTA receives 15% of case and half case purchases. It’s a great time to stock up for the holidays!
Be on the look out for more exciting events from the PTA.
Remember, this Friday is early release, which means our hospitality committee will be providing lunch for teachers and staff. If you’d like to donate $5 to help support a fab lunch from Olive Garden, please leave it in the front office labeled hospitality/Britney Whitmire.
MCES Food Drive
Middle Creek is sponsoring our 10th annual Food Drive to benefit the The Holly Springs Food Cupboard from Thursday, October 15th through Wednesday, October 28th. You can drop off food and hygiene items from 8:00a.m to 8:30 a.m to Mrs. Parrish’s office each day of the Food Drive.
(Please no GLASS PRODUCTS or EXPIRED FOODS). Our goal is to fill up Mrs. Parrish's entire office and make our largest donation yet to help our neighbors, friends, and family in the Holly Springs community.
Would you like to help? We need volunteers to receive and stack donations for a short time in Mrs. Parrish's office each morning of the food drive (8:00 to 8:45/9:00AM) and on Friday, Oct. 30th for Donation Pick Up.
