K-Kids Food Drive

December 5, 2016

Did you know? Nearly 15 million children in America today are at risk of hunger. For the months of November and December, K-Kids will be collecting nonperishable items to be part of the movement to end child hunger. These items will be donated to children in need in our community to help for the long Christmas break.

Here are several examples that could be donated for the food drive:

Canned meats (tuna/chicken)

Canned fruits (pop-top lids)

Peanut Butter

Instant Soups


Pop tarts

Peanut Butter Crackers

Easy Mac (just add water)

Granola Bars

Prepackaged Snacks

Vienna Sausages

Ravioli (individual servings)


Ramen Noodles

Starting Monday, December 5 through Friday, December 9, we will have our Santa Store at MHS to offer our children the opportunity to purchase gifts for their parents, grandparents, siblings and friends. The shop will be set up in the school and will be run by our PTO. Most of the items will range in price from $1 - $5. It is our hope that through this program, our children will learn about handling money and receive the joy of giving and selecting a special gift for their loved ones.
We would like to invite you to join us on Thursday, December 1 from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. for our Winter Music Performance. This year, our 4th grade students will be performing a musical titled "The Nutcracker, A Youth Musical". We hope you can join us for this special event!

Hooray for Socktober!

November 9, 2016

Hooray for Socktober! In the month of October, MHS K-Kids celebrated Socktober. To prepare for the upcoming months of colder weather the students collected over 216 pairs of socks. These socks will be donated to children in need in our community. Their first service project of the year was a great success!
