The Giving Garden needs soil!

If you can donate Black Cow soil or cow manure or compost for the garden beds, we'd appreciate it! Please drop off in garden:)

Book Fair Volunteers Still Needed:

There are still plenty of shifts available at our Bookaneer Book Fair starting up later this week! This is a fun and easy way to volunteer and experience how much the children LOVE this special time. We need more day shifts currently, so please volunteer when you can.!/showSignUp/20F054BA8A92C7-bookaneer

The Silent Partner Program

Mrs. Fillard, the school counselor, and Mrs. Lesniak, the school social worker, are asking for volunteers for a new program.

The Silent Partner Program has been successful at many other schools, and we would like to start this program at MCES. The purpose of the program is to help any MCES families who are experiencing a school-related need. This program may be used to secured funds for field trip money or other school items, or to gather donations of clothing, shoes, etc. By becoming a silent partner, you may help as much or as little as you wish. Mrs. Fillard will send an email to all "silent partners" when there is a need, and you can choose if you would like to donate at that time. If you would like to be part of the Silent Partner program, please email Mrs. Fillard with your name and the best email address for contact. Thank you!

Calling all Landscapers

MCES PTA is in need of a Grounds Committee Chair. This position helps MCES and Wake County beatify the school. Once or twice a year, we are slated for a refresh of mulch to be delivered and we need someone to help coordinate getting it in all the right spaces. If you love working outside and have an interest in volunteering at school with a LOW commitment, this might be for you.

Please contact Leslie Murr @
