Noteworthy Notes:

Book Fair:

Mill Pond Parent Group's Scholastic Book Fair is a little over a week away! The book fair is a fundraising event for MPPG and puts new books in the hands of our students, our teachers, and the library. Students will be shopping the fair during their scheduled Library period during the week of February 11th. Families can shop the fair and enjoy a Cookies and Cocoa Cafe on February 12th and 13th from 6:30-8pm. Make a purchase and be entered to win free books! Donate loose change/cash during the fair to support our students who are going to donate books to schools in need. Want to learn more about how you can sign up for an eWallet and avoid sending your child to school with cash? Check out our school's Scholastic homepage at to find helpful information about the program and the fair. Want to help at the fair? We'd love it! Sign up here:

Thank you for supporting this fun annual event!

Save the date for BINGO!

Thursday, March 14. Two sessions: 4:00- 5:30 p.m. OR 6:30 - 8:00 pm. Ticket order forms will be sent home next week. Please see the attached flyer for information about how you can donate to the BINGO Basket Raffle Drive. BINGO is our biggest fundraiser of the year, so please consider contributing. Any amount, large or small, is greatly appreciated! See attached document. Thank you!


Please try to drop all students off before 7:40 AM. We have noticed a rather significant upswing in the number of tardies since the weather has worsened. We ask that you plan ahead during this winter season and ensure that your child is given plenty of time to get into the building, get settled and start the day without feeling behind or rushed.

Perennial Math:

We have had a couple of Perennial Math competitions now and they seem to be quite a big hit with the students. The material seems to be right on point by being challenging and fun without being impossible. All competitions end before 3:00, so please be courteous to the staff running the competitions and be ready to pick your child up at 3:00.
