MCS Noble Middle School’s PTA supports critical academic needs, is an active voice on decisions that impact your child's health, safety and quality of education, and builds a stronger, more inclusive school community. We invite you to join and PTA For Your Child because increasing our membership, even by one, makes it possible to:
Fund umbrellas for picnic tables in the courtyard
Provide funding for Campus Green Team
Provide academic enhancements such as Science Olympiad, Reflections, Math Counts & Battle of the Books.
Fund staff appreciation events
Fund literacy initiatives
Fund recreational projects
And Much, Much More!
There is no wrong or right way to be involved - anything you can give, whether it's time or money, will support your child's potential. We invite you to join because we can do more together than apart. It only takes 5 minutes. All adults in the household are encouraged to become official voting PTA members. PTA membership dues include membership in our local, State, and National PTAs.
We currently have 269 members help us reach our goal of 300 members!
*Membership must be renewed each school year*
EAGLE PRIDE FUND DONATIONS
Thank you so much to all families and businesses who have donated this year! We have raised $2,740. Donate today to help us reach our $6,000 goal!
The Eagle Pride Fund is a direct donation program of MCS Noble PTA, and 100% of your dollars go to school funding. This program is the backbone of the PTA budget this year. The Eagle Pride Fund is how we budget incredible support for the students and staff of Noble, yet avoid direct selling fundraising programs!
$50 per family is the suggested amount, however donations of any amount are appreciated and welcome. Can we agree $50 a year sounds far better than selling wrapping paper or candles to friends and family?
Need a personal tax benefit? This is one possible way!!
How about a BUSINESS tax benefit?
Now isn’t the right time, but you’d like an invoice at a later date? No problem! Email firstname.lastname@example.org, PTA Treasurer, and we will certainly accommodate your request!
The EagleWATCH program is such a benefit to the school and a great opportunity to spend a little time in your child's environment, become familiar with everyone, and provide added safety to all students. The best part is that it's on your schedule. Sign up for an hour shift any time you can! Change days, change times, or make it a weekly date.
Email PTA Volunteer Michelle Robinson at email@example.com with any questions and she will provide all the info you need to get started.
July 1st started the 2023-2024 volunteer year, which means all school volunteers will have to re-do their annual volunteer training/evaluation on or after July 1st to be eligible to continue volunteering during the 2023-2024 school year.
Background Checks for Level 2 Volunteers are valid for 3 years
We are thrilled to announce that we had 25 submissions for the PTA Reflections Competition! The submissions are across four of the six categories, with all three grades represented. Judging will take place the second week of November and winners will be announced by November 15. First and second place winners for each category will move on to the New Hanover County Schools competition.
We'd like to thank all of our participants for sharing their artwork, which will be displayed following judging. Also a special thank you to Mrs. Rogers and Ms. Cooley for supporting the Reflections program in their classrooms. Be on the lookout for results in next month's newsletter.
