Holiday shopping simplified!
Take care of your holiday shopping by purchasing gift cards through Mount Madonna School (MMS). The next order will be placed on Tuesday, December 10 and available by December 13, giving you plenty of time to mail them as gifts to out-of-town family! We will continue to place orders throughout the school year as they are received.
Here’s how it works:

THANK YOU to everyone who chose to support your school through the Drive for Schools fundraiser. It is an important one in that it allows all of us to reach outside our own pocketbooks to friends, relatives, neighbors, and business associates. Along this line, thank you to Jessica Cambell for setting up the ticket sales opportunity at Deluxe Foods in Aptos.
Drive for Schools raised $13,755 for our annual and capital funds, which, unfortunately, was quite a bit short of the $20,000 goal. We will need to make up this shortfall in our other fundraising efforts this year.

Reentry to school or work after vacation often brings new vision and fresh perspective. The down time of summer revitalizes adults and children alike. Greeting the youngsters on Day One is one of my favorite moments of the school year. Students return with taller bodies, longer or shorter hair, huge smiles (sometimes with new front teeth) and jump off the bus looking for faces both familiar and new at the bus stop.
We hope that you might find some time to come to the preschool/kindergarten campus on Saturday, August 24 from 11am to 2pm to help with all sorts of jobs, from emptying new sand into our sandboxes to washing cubbies, to gardening. (If you have shovels and pruning shears or hedge clippers please bring them. We do not need any painting supplies.) Your help will be greatly appreciated and there will be refreshments!
