This Friday! Be there!
The Wait is Over . . . Fall Festival is Here!
Thank you so much to everyone who has already signed up to help at Fall Festival! October is a pretty busy month as far as MAPA and volunteering go, so we need help from so many. If you haven't had a chance to sign up yet there is still time. We need several more volunteers to keep all of the activities open. This year MAPA will be implementing the "no volunteer, no activity" motto again. This means that any time we have a volunteer need and no one has signed up - that activity will be closed for the time slot.
Not only do we have Fall Festival this month, we also have Parent Teacher Conference dinners and Book Fair October 15-17th.
Please, please follow the link and sign up where you are able. If you have any questions you can email MAPA at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Parent Teacher Conferences
You can go to Track it Forward to sign up under your teacher's name. If the calendar view is too overwhelming with all teachers on it, you can click "filter by category" and only check your child's teachers.
Help Needed for Jr High Play
This December our Junior High is putting on a Madrigal Dinner Theatre. We are in need of parents who are willing to help with sewing costumes. Our play is medieval themed, therefore we’ll use medieval patterns. We’re also happy to accept medieval style clothing donations. Any time spent sewing can be used as parent volunteers hours.
Contact Ms. Sarah if you are able to help or have any questions at - email@example.com

Attendance and Punctuality
If your child arrives after the start of school at 8:30am, please accompany them into the office to sign them in as tardy - after you park your car in a parking space. Junior High students who arrive after 8:30am will need to enter the building through the main doors.
Track it Forward & Volunteering
Please sign up asap on Track it Forward. After you sign up, you will be approved for the group and will get an email indicating as such. After this, get online and click on the upcoming events page. If the main calendar is too overwhelming, click on "filter by category" and only check those teachers you would like to view. I suggest also checking "school wide" events so you don't miss anything.
Track it Forward is where you will sign up for your turn to bring snack to the classroom and where early childhood families sign up for a KEEP assessment time slot.
