The Mohr PTA works hard to support our students. We are fortunate to be part of a community that is highly dedicated to the success and enrichment of our children. The Mohr PTA with the help of our outstanding community of parents, educators and volunteers is able to provide enrichment opportunities, community activities, equipment and classroom supplies that directly benefit our kids. Consider joining the PTA to be an advocate for all Mohr students. Your membership, your More for Mohr donation and your volunteerism all make a huge impact on our school!

On behalf of the Mohr PTA Executive Board, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your support during the 2017-18 school year. With your donations and volunteer hours, we've been able to fund and run a wide array of beloved activities and programs for our children, including but not limited to the Ice Cream Social, Pizza with the Principal, Bingo Night, the Fun Fair, cultural celebrations, art classes, running club, Field Day, and even this PTA-sponsored newsletter that you're reading right now! None of them would exist without your help, so thank you so much for your support.
Our all-new Executive Board is already busily planning for the 2018-19 school year, and we have several brand new events and activities in the works. If you'd like to chair a committee, please sign up here! No experience is necessary! Sadly, if no one steps up to chair these events and programs, we won't be able to offer them, so please consider sharing your time and talents. Thank you in advance for your help!
One easy way to help out right now is to return your Supply Kit order form along with a check for $45 made out to the Mohr PTA by Friday, June 1. Funds collected are used to purchase a wide array of supplies --check your order form for full details-- that are distributed to teachers for use this fall. Any money remaining goes to support PTA-sponsored projects, activities, and events.
Before I close, I'd like to share a few easy --and FREE-- ways you can help the Mohr PTA earn extra money over the summer.
Have a wonderful summer, and we'll see you this fall!
2018-19 Mohr PTA President
Students who pre-ordered a yearbook during registration will receive their yearbook during the last week of school. Yearbooks will be delivered to the classrooms and teachers will hand them out to the students at their discretion.
If you did not pre-order a yearbook and would like one, we will have a limited number of books for sale after school on Wednesday, May 30 at 2:50 pm by the flag pole in front of the office. Books will be sold for $30 each on a first-come, first-served basis until we run out. Cash or check (payable to Mohr PTA) only.
The Mohr PTA Field Day will be held on Thursday, May 31st from 9:15 am - 11:30 am.
Please sign up to volunteer! Our 650 students need you to keep this much-loved event safe and fun! We need over 130 volunteers to properly monitor the kids out on the field. Only "cleared" volunteers can participate in school-related activities. If you are not sure of your current status, please check with your child's teacher in advance.
If we don't have enough volunteers signed up by Monday, May 21st, Field Day will be impossible to organize and hold and we will be forced to cancel it. Thank you in advance for your support!

Box Tops for Education - Please remember to submit Box Tops for Education certificates to help our school earn cash this year! Box Tops are small, rectangular certificates that can be found on a number of popular products, including General Mills cereals, Kleenex tissues, and more. See the Box Tops website for a full listing of eligible products .
Please place all Box Tops into a baggie labeled with the name of your child's teacher and grade level. They can be submitted at any time throughout the year to either your child's teacher or the front office. I will keep track of the submissions and the class that submits the most by year's end will receive a special treat!
The first submission deadline for the current school year is in early November. In addition, you can earn even more cash for Mohr by downloading the Box Tops for Education app from the App Store and scanning your register receipts. We can earn up to $20,000 for Mohr via the Box Tops program, so let's get to work! Thanks for your support! Contact Sherry Wight with questions.
