HANNAFORD GROCERY CARD FUNDRAISER

30 families participated in the HGC program this November, earning $470 for outdoor education programs! You, too, can participate in this easy, no-cost fundraiser!  It's free and so easy!!  Just send in a check with your filled out form to the MS front office and you will receive a Hannaford grocery card for the full amount of your check.  Hannaford gives the MSPA 5% of every dollar loaded onto your card.  You decide to which grade's outdoor fund your 5% gets allocated or you may choose to allocate funds to teacher grants. Send in checks by the due dates listed and we will reload your same card each month.  For questions please email Laura Allen at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  

See here how your child's Chewonki fundraising is going. The MSPA has set each class's goal of reducing tuition by $90 per student but last year's 6th grade class was able to reduce their tuition by $135 per student!! Excess funds raised/unused move with your child's class into High School.
 



CLYNK NEWS:
 
We have some new leaders with CLYNK this week!  For the week of November 13th, 6th grade has really stepped up their game in the last week.  Mr. Chase's Homeroom comes in at #1 with an EXPLOSIVE $42.75 for the month of November so far!  Mr. Doane is coming in at #2 with $20.80.  Geikie slides in at #3 with $19.00 followed by Whaley in 4th with $16.10 and Karlonas still hanging on in the top 5 at #5 with $14.55.  

We are only two weeks into the November / December Challenge.  Take home bags this week!  We have five teams who are not on the board this month.  Let's get 100% of our classrooms recycling!
