The MPCS Annual Auction Event is usually held in the spring (April). Our Auction Committee, in conjunction with all MPCS parents, solicits donations of services and goods from the MPCS community and from local businesses, then uses those donations to create the Auction Event. It is always a night to remember! This event is also supported by the Parent Council.
CIRCLE OF FRIENDS
The Circle of Friends is our campus “Welcome Wagon” for new MPCS families and sponsors community support for all MPCS families. If you know of someone in need of support, we would love to provide it (we can organize meals, car pools, a care basket for any situation). (Year Round)
Classroom Reps are an essential voluntary position on campus in support of our teachers; every classroom must have one. Duties vary from teacher to teacher depending on their grade-specific needs, but may include the planning and coordinating of field trips, class parties and class participation in campus events such as the Harvest Festival and the Winter Faire. For the Classroom Representative position, please contact your teacher to express interest, and please see the Classroom Representative section elsewhere in this handbook.
