PTO Board Meeting and General Assembly Mtg w/ Dr. Lindsey Hall

We have 2 important PTO meetings this Thursday (10/12) that we want to make sure you are aware of.

First, at 6pm, if you are interested in being more involved with the PTO or have questions about how you might be able to serve on the board, please come to this meeting.  This meeting will give an overview of all the different roles we have on the board and be a session to answer any questions about PTO that people might have.

Then, at 7pm, we are excited to welcome our new superintendent, Dr. Lindsey Hall, to speak for our General Assembly meeting.  Dr. Hall will provide an update about the construction at Middletown Prairie and provide insights about cost, budget, etc. and answer questions that people have about the project.

Both meetings will be held in the Board Room at Middletown Prairie, and child care is provided for both meetings.  If you bring your children, please check them in at the Kids Club room before you come to the Board Room.

Hope to see you Thursday!  If you have questions, please email president@m-spto.com.

Sincerely,

The M-S PTO Board

  • No, we don’t walk real dogs.  The DAWG Walk is the M-S PTO’s annual fundraiser and has 2 parts:
    1. Fundraising and Prizes associated with fundraising levels
    2. We are the M-S Bulldogs so the “DAWGS” are the kids and we make walking part of the celebration we have to thank the kids for all of their fundraising efforts.  The DAWG WALK event will take place for each elementary schoo.
