2018-2019 Enrichment Programs
Supported by the Mockingbird PTO
Nana Puddin' (Dennis Lee) | (Oct 2018) The entire student body enjoyed "The Great Jungle Jam" performance.
High Tech / High Touch | We have multiple dates throughout the school year planned so that each grade level has a turn to experience this hands-on science program.
Geppetto's Marionette Theater | (Spring 2019) This program will feature "Silly Strings" for the entire student body.
Dot Day / Rock Garden Project | (Sept 2018) The PTO assisted Julie Mosty, MKB Librarian, in purchasing rocks/pebbles for this project. Students painted the rocks to create a rock garden at the front of the school. Dot Day is about "Making your Mark.” The rocks helped the students make their mark by beautifying our campus flower beds.
Additional PTO Support
- We are donating $10,000 in "school gifts" for the school to use as needed
- Provide classroom start-up supplies for each teacher at beginning of year
- Provide balls for each grade level to play with during the school year
- Cover the cost for student council and teachers to attend workshop
Are you Curious about How your Fundraising Dollars Help at Mockingbird Elementary? The PTO provides funds to bring enrichment programs to the school and to assist the school and teachers with their specific needs.
Why do we Hold Fundraisers when the State Provides Funding to Help Support our Schools? The short answer is that state funding is significantly less than in years past due to changes in their funding calculations. This means that many expenses previously covered by state funding, no longer are.
What About the Bond Package that we just Passed? The bond package covers some much needed structural (and other) improvements, but does not cover the academic enrichment programs and other items we are seeking to fund.
