The Monster Book Fair is coming!

It's that time of year again! We're having a MONSTER Book Fair this year and we need your help! Volunteers are needed for day/evenings shifts and are critical to ensure that the event runs smoothly.

There will be a Monster Book Fair preview party for the teachers on Thursday, September 24. Please sign up to donate food and other items to help make it a success!

Early Release Teacher Luncheon

Our next Early Release luncheon will be held on September 4th and will be a Taco Bar theme. We are well on our way to filling all of the signup slots but need a few more people to make it happen! Participation is easy- just log into the signup genius and select your item. Then send the items to school with your child or drop them off in the main office the day of. Email Britney Whitmire to be added to the committee. The link to the next luncheon is


THANK YOU to all of the families & staff who have already joined the PTA for the 2015-16 school year! You can still join too! Download a membership form here: Completed membership forms along with dues ($7 for single and $10 for double membership) can be returned to your child's teacher or dropped off in the front office.

Snack Support

Ms. Fillard's office offers snack assistance to nearly 40 students at Middle Creek Elementary. While we receive snacks from the Holly Springs Food Bank, it is not enough to cover all of our needs. If you are interested in supporting this program, please follow the link to our sign up genius for more information.

School Supply Donations Needed

We are especially in need of backpacks (gently used is welcomed), pencil boxes, pencil pouches, plastic folders, and three ring binders. Any donations can be brought to Mrs. Fillard's room or the front office.

Egg Cartons needed

Please send in your egg cartons to Mrs. MacDonald. She uses them all year for various art projects!

Volunteers Needed for the School Store:

We are looking for school store volunteers for the 2015-2016 school year.

Tuesdays: K-2 kids welcome from 8:00-8:25am
Thursdays: 3-5 kids welcome from 8:00-8:25am

The school store sells little pencils, erasers, fun little school items for kids to purchase - prices range from $0.10 - $2.00, so kids can easily afford to buy something even with a little bit of pocket change. It is located at the end of the main hallway, adjacent to the 2nd grade hallway. Please contact Stephanie Petty,
