AUGUST/SEPTEMBER:

With a new school year upon us and back to school shopping underway, be sure all of your child’s items are properly labeled. A great way to make sure everything gets home each day and support MMO Programs, is to order your personalized labels with “Loveable Labels.” 20% of every order will support MMO Programs!

MAY 2017:

Our Spring Fling was a great success! We raised $2,200 for MMO.  Congrats to all the winners, and thanks to all who attended and participated in the raffles.

My extreme gratitude and appreciation is for my husband, Keith. None of this would have been possible without his hard work. Special thanks to Corrine and Missy for their help, to Fitzgerald’s 1928 for hosting us and to Bareburger for sponsoring us.

Speaking of, please join us for our final restaurant night of the year at Bareburger on Wednesday, May 24. Flyers with details to follow.

Don’t forget, if you have any spring plant or flower needs, all purchases at Metropolitan Plant Exchange of $50 or more result in $10 donated back to MMO. Please reach out if you need a flyer or download a copy below.

            As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please reach out via email, mmoparentassociation@gmail.com.

September 12:

On behalf of the MMO Parent Association, I would like to welcome our new families, as well as welcome back our returning ones! I’m excited to work with MMO’s administration, teachers, students and families again this year to both foster a closer community, and help with the school’s needs to better serve our children.

Be on the lookout for upcoming information about our year-long fundraising opportunity, Shop with Scrip, which is an easy way to purchase gift cards that you may use for your everyday purchases, and also help out MMO at the same time.

The PA has a lot of great events planned for this year, but we need your help. If you would like to be a classroom liaison, or a general PA member, please email mmoparentassociation@gmail.com for more info.

Looking forward to a great school year!

– Nicole Dougherty Parent Association President

MMO has a very active Parents’ Association. For those who wish to be involved in a large or small role, there is something for everyone! This organization coordinates events such as the Scholastic Book Fair,  nights out at Panera Bread and Montclair’s Bareburger and more, like the very successful and fun Casino Night Gala last spring.

All events are to raise funds for capital improvements to the school’s facilities and the purchase of new school materials.

If you are interested in joining and meeting fellow parents of MMO, be sure to come here for more information about our next meeting and/or other ways to be involved.
