We regret to announce that the Haunted Hallway will NOT be part of the Harvest Festival this year. We didn't garner enough interest in volunteers to prep for the event.
The MSPA does typically organize some of the sporty-type outdoor games for the festival, so please stay tuned for more details and volunteer requests in the coming weeks!
Clynk volunteers needed - 2 specific roles:
1. Town liaison: visit local businesses that have displayed or used our Clynk bags in the past to keep the relationship going. If they are using our bags, help them by taking the bags to Hannaford for them.
2. CEMS uses clink bags. We need a volunteer on a regular basis to being the bags to Hannaford. There are often several bags and use of a pick up truck is recommended.
October 27: First Box Top Collection date, student submitting the most valid number will win an iTunes Gift Card!
Now that everyone is settling into the new school year, here is a reminder to send in those Box Tops collected over the summer. The Box Tops do not need to be neatly trimmed, just include the full future expiration date and display the product code. The student who submits the most valid Box Tops by the collection deadline will win an iTunes Gift Card. The 2017-18 collection dates are 10/27, 12/22, 2/27, 4/27 and the last day of the school.

CAPE ELIZABETH MIDDLE SCHOOL HOCKEY
What do we need from you? In order to get a rough idea of this year's costs, please let me know ASAP if your skater plans to play Middle School Hockey. Please send the following when you respond:
- Birth Year
- 2017-2018 USA Hockey Number (if you have it)
- Whether your skater will also play House or Travel and which league
- Email address that you prefer we use for contact
Some dates to save. Assessments/Practices have been scheduled for the following Sunday dates at Troubh Ice Arena 6:40pm-7:40pm. Oct 15, Oct 22, Oct 29 and Nov 5th. Please do your best to make these dates, as we will be forming teams based on these skates. The season start date is tentatively Nov 5th and will run through April with Playoffs in March. There will be no games Dec 24th, Dec 31, or Jan 14th.
Our numbers are shrinking. You can help!
If you know of any 4th, 5th or 6th graders who skate and might be interested, please pass this information to them. There are plenty of opportunities for 4th graders to start skating now and be ready to play with us next year. Also, all pond skaters are welcome to come try hockey with us in this low pressure environment.
