February PTC Notes

It’s 2018 and the PTC is off and running! 

I would like to give a big thanks to Heather & Sean McIntyre and Carl Flusche for all their hard work on putting together the 8th grade interviews. This is an important offering by PTC Community Enrichment and the MIDs. The 8th grade interviews allows our 8th grade students to practice their interview skills for High School Admissions, summer jobs or internships, and general practice in publicly speaking. Thank you to all the parents who volunteered to assist with the mock interviews!

The Auction team has been working tirelessly for months on planning and organizing the 2018 Auction which is being held on February 24th. We hope you got your tickets for this evening of fun with fellow MIS parents, friends and faculty that you will not want to miss! 

The Auction team teamed up with three MIS families to host three Gift Gathering parties to support the auction efforts. Gift Gathering parties, in addition to having a fun evening with friends, are held to support Underwriting, Large Auction and Silent Auction efforts.  Underwriting is a direct donation to the auction on behalf of your business or your family. Large Auction is where the live bidding is done via our auctioneer for packages put together via donations for sports and entertainment tickets, travel, club membership for golf, spas and fine dining. Silent Auction is a direct donation to help create basket packages and unique items (signed football, necklace, piece of art). These items are all collected through the Gift Gathering parties or can be dropped off in the school office. A huge thank you to Adele & Eric Verdiguel (K-2nd ), Elisa & Mauricio Ortiz-Segura (6th-8th ) and Erin & Steve Blair (3rd- 5th ).  

Catholic Schools Week is a week-long celebration of being a Catholic School! With all the celebration and fun comes a lot of behind-the-scenes work. Nolia Norra and Angie Borino, our Spiritual Enrichment Chair and Co-Chair have been planning and organizing this exciting week. Thank you to all of you who have already given or offered your support. If you have not had a chance to volunteer please consider helping with this event. There are all sorts of needs every day that week from big to small tasks but all equally important.

Did you know that Head, Co-Head and Room Parents are part of the PTC? Room Parents are part of PTC’s  Volunteer Services headed by Amy Rodgers and Amy Nunez.  The Room parents are on the front lines of what is going on in the classrooms on a daily basis.  They know first-hand how hard our Teachers are working to ensure the very best academic experience.  The Room parents work hard to support our Teachers with class projects, events, field trips, and parties.  I know all the room parents are working doubly hard right now finishing up the class gifts for auction!  Thank you to each one of you for all you do to make our Teacher’s and children’s classroom experience great.

Are you thinking about joining PTC?  Have more questions?  Please ask me or any member of PTC!

“There is no “I” in Team, but we sure are glad there is “u” in our volunteers!”

God Bless & Go Mustangs!
