Parent Survey - Please Respond

After-school program at Mayo Elementary for 2016-2017 school year ...

We are in the initial stages of gathering information to see if:

1) there is a need for an after-school program at MES and

2) how much interest there would be in developing one.

We would appreciate you taking the time to complete a short survey to help us gather this information. The survey can be accessed by using in the link below.

If you would prefer to complete a paper copy of the form, please contact the school and we can send one home with your child. Please complete just one survey per household.

Thank you for your assistance!
