Early Release Teacher Luncheon
Johnny's Pizza MCES Night Out - Tuesday, 1/12
Please mark your calendar for a Day Off from cooking next Tuesday, January 12th! We invite you to enjoy some delicious pizza at our ALL-DAY school-wide event at Johnny's Pizza, 10am - 10pm. Just say "Middle Creek Elementary" when you order, and Johnny's will donate 20% of all Dine-in and Carry-Out orders to our school, as well as 10% of all delivery orders. All of the proceeds will go to new playground equipment. Thanks for your support!
Thank you for your Fundraising Support -- almost $800 has been raised!
We wanted say a HUGE Thank You to all of you who participated in our McDonald's Kindergarten and First Grade Night Out Event in November AND our Shop.Eat.Middle Creek Event in December. A special Thank You to our Kindergarten and First Grade teachers who spent their personal time WORKING at McDonald's for the evening. We couldn't have done it without you! With both fundraising events, we've raised almost $800 toward a new makeover for our K-2 playground. Thank you!
