M-S PTO Nominations for 2017-2018 School Year

Being a part of the M-S PTO board is rewarding and fun! And we need you! We can match jobs to your interests and abilities.

As a board member you have the opportunity to get to know the teachers and administration at the schools and understand their needs, meet other parents who share your concerns, help raise money for your child’s school, be informed about what is going on in the schools and plan student programs and events.

If you are interested in being on the M-S PTO Board please complete our nomination form at www.m-spto.com/nomination-page by March 9th at 5pm.  After March 9, you will be contacted regarding next steps for elections, getting involved, etc. If you have any questions or need additional information please contact Jean Shaffer at (nona.jeans@gmail.com).


Children who will be five years old on or before September 1, 2017 are eligible by state law for enrollment in public kindergarten.  In order for the Mahomet-Seymour School District to accommodate student needs for the 2017/2018 educational year, the district needs an accurate estimate of the number of students eligible for enrollment.


Kindergarten Roundup/Pre-registration for incoming kindergarten students will be held on

Tuesday, March 7 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at Middletown Prairie Elementary located at:

 1301 S. Bulldog Drive

Mahomet, IL  61853


A letter with information about the meeting will be mailed on February 7 to all parents of kindergarten age children who came to previous PK developmental screenings offered by the district or who already provided Middletown with their information.  If your child has not been screened or you are new to the district and have not contacted Middletown, please call Lorraine Vallee or Julie Arnold at 586-5833 to be sure you receive this very important letter.

HANDS Around the World

It is time to prepare for the annual HANDS Around the World event at Lincoln Trail Elementary! The purpose of HANDS (Heritages and National Differences Study) is to expose the students to different cultures and increase their knowledge of national differences.

Each classroom will be turned into a different country for the day and lessons about those countries are led by volunteer “governors”. Students will spend the day traveling from country to country, learning about the people and cultures of those places.

This event requires a large number of volunteers to make it a successful and enriching event for the kids. If you or someone you know can participate in planning and/or working at HANDS 2017, please complete this form and return it to Lincoln Trail by Wednesday, February 1st, 2017. Or you may complete the form online at or e-mail your information to hands.mspto@gmail.com

Questions? Contact Lori Kietzmann (217) 590-0102 or Alyssa Simpson (217) 621-0416
