What’s New?

Hello MMO Families!

Thank you so much for all your support of our 50th Birthday Fundraising Campaign!  With your help we raised over $15,000 – and had a great time at our Art Mart wine-tasting event.  Look for one more 50th Birthday Celebration event coming in the fall.

OUTSIDE BOARD – Now that the weather’s better, we’ll be outside A LOT!  So you don’t have to hike up the stairs, just to find out your child’s class is on the playground, on a walk, or in the Big Room – check the white board right inside the main door.  We’ll try to write down when and where classes are if they’re not in their classroom.

Flapjack Fundraiser CANCELLED – The MMO Board made a decision at our last meeting to cancel the Applebee’s Flapjack Fundraiser that was scheduled for April 22.  When we scheduled this event, the Illinois Marathon was not set for the same day.  Since we had such a successful 50th Birthday Fundraiser, and we are concerned about time conflict we decided to cancel for this year.  It’s a fun Fundraiser, so we’ll most likely do it again in the future.  Thanks!

PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES – Please check with your child’s teacher if you’d like to have a conference during the week of April 18th.  It’s a great idea to take a few minutes to meet to talk about the amazing things your child has been doing this year – and what you can expect next year.

PLAYGROUND CLEANUP – We’ll be doing a little cleaning, mulch spreading/fluffing and general playground maintenance on Saturday, April 29 from 9-11.  Bring your rakes and work gloves, and we’ll bring the coffee and donuts!

TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK  – Teacher Appreciation Week is coming May 1-5, and we have some fun ideas and activities planned to help show our teachers how much we love them.  You’ll receive more information the week of April 18th.

REGISTRATION FOR 2017/18 –  We are filling up fast!  We currently have waiting lists for Guppies, Angelfish and Big Fish for next year.  If you haven’t registered your child for next year, and plan to, please do it ASAP.  We have started opening up spots to new families.  Please go to our online registration site and complete the form. You will need an updated medical form from your child’s doctor with the most up-to-date vaccination record. You will also need to submit new MMO Discipline/Photo/Observations and MMO Pick-Up/Permissions forms.   (Updated forms are available here).
