Hello parents!

Today a packet is going home to announce a new PTO fundraiser this year! The MMS PTO Art Appreciation Committee has chosen to work with Original Works – a fundraiser that puts your child’s original artwork on a variety of different quality products.  We have created packets for each of the children in grades 1st through 8th.

Please take a moment to look at all of the wonderful products available to order. These make excellent holiday or anytime presents for your children to gift their art to relatives, parents, siblings, and even themselves.  I personally enjoy seeing my child’s artwork on my refrigerator every day. The note pads have made easy, convenient and inexpensive ways to share your child’s art with all of your family.  Magnets, pillowcases, nightlights and garden flags are other ways you can choose to display our child’s art in our home and gift to extended family members.  There are so many options, you are sure to find something wonderful!

Your child’s original artwork in in this packet – please imagine it on all of the wonderful products in the brochure!  Original Works has assured us that the orders will be ready before the school’s winter break. Choose as many items as you’d like to have or give as gifts, fill out the order form, and replace it in the packet.  Return the entire packet (WITH your child’s art!) by Tuesday, November 17th.   We will do the rest!


Tuesday, November 17th ———— Send order packet back to school

Wednesday, December 16th ——– Items arrive MMS, get sent home



Teacher Appreciation Gifts
Teacher Appreciation Gifts

adventure Each year the teachers and faculty of Millhopper Montessori School work incredibly hard to help our children learn and grow in a safe and healthy environment. During Teacher Appreciation Week we like to let them know how much we value their efforts. This year’s theme is designed to honor each individual’s interests and choices. As part of our Teacher Appreciation Week activities, the PTO Appreciation Committee is pleased to once again offer the opportunity to purchase for our teachers and staff a gift certificate to a local merchant of their choice. By many families contributing to the same gift, they are able to select something special. Participation is optional and we hope the program will alleviate some of the stress of this busy time of year. If you would like to participate, please place your order on this webpage or you may review the letter that was mailed to your home and indicate the dollar amount you wish to contribute next to the individual’s name. Please total all your contributions and return the form with cash or check (made out to MMS PTO) in an envelope to Crystal Sorrow by Friday, May 13, 2016. You may leave the envelopes at the front desk or hand them to Crystal directly. Gift certificates will be presented to each recipient during Teacher Appreciation Week with a card from the families who have contributed. Dollar amounts are not included on the card. Since the PTO is now a non-profit 501(c)(3), your donation may be tax deductible. Please speak to your tax advisor regarding tax deductions. If you are interested in assisting with planning Teacher Appreciation Week or if have any questions, please feel free to contact either of us at missyno@bellsouth.net or rimskoon@yahoo.com. Have a wonderful end of the school year! Missy Norman & Sheila Koon PTO Appreciation Committee
