Hi MES Famlies!

We are already half way through July! Time is flying, and the PTO has been hard at work to get everything ready for the start of school, no matter what the year ahead ends up looking like. There are a few things that we can predict at this point. The first thing is a much bigger need for school supplies. To keep all students as safe as possible, teachers have asked that everyone has their own individual set of school supplies instead of a bulk supply that students share. These supplies will come in handy no matter what the reopening of school looks like, and the PTO is working on a school supply fundraiser to help meet this need. More information on this will be coming out soon.

Another thing we are preparing for is a big need for children's masks. While the district is working on being able to provide student's with a mask, I think we all know how many of those masks will go missing, be left at home or will end up broken or dirty. The PTO wants to provide a large supply of back up masks to have on hand for just this purpose. We are asking for volunteer sewers and/or mask donations. If you are able to help us with this, please contact us at MammothPTO@gmail.com. 

And one last thing that's a little more on the fun side! Help us win $10,000! Box Tops is giving away $10,000 to 10 schools for the next month. To help us win, download the Box Tops App and scan your grocery receipts every time you go shopping. It's quick, easy, and even if we don't win, the PTO will still receive Box Top money every time you shop. This year will be a tough one for fundraising, while at the same time, the new needs for our teachers and students are looking to be bigger than ever. Every little bit helps! For more details, see below. 

Thanks so much for all your support!
