MMS Gives Back:  Next week our school will be competing in a completion to raise money to make tie blankets for local children’s hospitals.  To do this we will be raising money together as a school.  On Monday, bring in pennies, on Tuesday, bring nickels, on Wednesday, bring dimes, on Thursday bring quarters and on Friday bring all coins and dollars.  When brining in collected money, simply place it in your pods jug that will be placed in the pod.  At the end, which ever pod in the school collects the most money will be rewarded with ice cream sandwiches.  Together let’s help local hospitals and have fun!
