More Events Are Coming...

Mari-Linn PTA feels very blessed and grateful to have such amazing terrific, supportive and dedicated parents that lend a helping hand wherever it's needed. We'd like to take this moment to say thank you. Whether you come to meetings, washed cars or will bake cookies for our bake sale, we would like to say "THANK YOU!!!

In just a few short weeks we will be supporting the school's annual craft bazaar by renting a booth area and selling baked goods. We need your support! There are many ways you can help us succeed with this project: Donate baked or store bought goods, sign up to volunteer an hour or two to help man our table and/or stop by our booth and purchase a few bags of goodies! The more help we receive means the more we can give back to our students.

We are still selling raffle tickets for a "Tickle Me Elmo - 10th Anniversary Edition Doll". Tickets are only $1.00 each. Tickets can be purchased in the school's office. The drawing for Elmo will take place at the craft bazaar. You need not be present to win.

Another project that the PTA will be hosting is our first ever Holiday Shop. The event will take place during the first week of December. Our "store" will be open to student shoppers during the afternoons of the 6th - 8th. We need many volunteers to help. Our goal is to gift wrap the student's gifts before they take them home. This entirely depends on the number of volunteers we are able to get. No profit will be made from this event. Items in the store will be priced from .50 to $12.00 each. More information will be sent home as we get closer to December.

If you are able to volunteer at one or both of these events, please leave word in the office for us to contact you. Or you can email us at

Our next PTA meeting is this Thursday, the 2nd @ 6:30 PM. We would love to see you there! No meeting is planned for December.
