Hello, MLC families!
I know that I speak for the whole PTSA board: WE MISS YOU!!! It’s been 48 days since we were together at MLC but it feels like 4,800!
Nonetheless, we're still thinking about plans for next year. Because of the decrease in fundraising opportunities (such as the auction, restaurant nights, Timbers games parking, etc.) we are concerned that our ability to support our students and teachers will be greatly diminished next year.
Please add your voice to the PTSA as we navigate this next year. Our last PTSA meeting of the year will be Wednesday, May 13 at 6PM. We’ll be electing board members for two positions: President and Vice President. Check MLCPTSA.org for Zoom meeting details.
Fundraising News: While we couldn’t come together in person, our virtual auction on April 25th was a big hit! Thanks to everyone who logged on and sang karaoke, played trivia, and danced.
The fun’s not over yet! I’ve attached a flyer with some of my favorite items to inspire you to shop and donate. Bidding ends on Saturday, May 2 at 6PM charityauction.bid/rumpusroomauction
Community Assistance: The MLC PTSA has mailed over $600 in grocery gift cards to MLC families over the past six weeks. If your student and your family need Fred Meyer gift cards to get through this challenging time, please email
MLC's school counselors: Genie Gomez at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jeanette Scantling, email@example.com.
MLC ROCKS! Starting Friday, May 1, explore area parks and find hidden rocks hand-painted by MLC teachers. Each rock has a character trait on reverse and serves as a fortune for the discoverer. Hunt for these special treasures at Mt. Tabor, Peninsula, Columbia, and Forest Parks.
Save the Date: Teacher Appreciation Week: Show some of your love and appreciation for our amazing MLC teachers during the week of May 4-8, 2020! Contribute to our drive here and we'll use the funds to purchase gift cards for all MLC teachers. Feel free to mail personal thank you notes and letters to individual teachers. They appreciate it!
See you soon! --Alisa
