Montevideo Spirit Wear Wednesdays

Students are encouraged to wear their Montevideo spirit wear t-shirts or any purposeful display of our Montevideo colors, yellow/gold and black on Spirit Wear days.  Each Wednesday, there is a school wide competition and the classroom with the most school spirit in each grade level will get to display a Spirit Wear banner outside of their classroom for the week.  Go, Mustangs!

Breakfast Book Club

Does your child LOVE to read? Do they LOVE breakfast? Are they in grades 1-5? 
 If so, I have just the PTA club for them! 

Montevideo PTA’s Breakfast Book Club is back for the 2019-2020 school year. This club meets one Wednesday a month, starting in October and ending in April. Members will receive an new book, yummy breakfast, and participate in a fun activity each meeting.

Look for the green flyer in your child’s Friday folder! Remember- you must be cleared to volunteer at our school.  If you don’t already have a Be a Mentor account, you can apply here:

Jamba Juice Wednesdays – Punch Cards Available!

No cash to send with your child?  No problem!  Consider purchasing a $20 punch card that your child can present, instead, for their mid-week treat.  After school drinks will be sold in front of the office most Wednesdays with Jamba Juice smoothies for 2 punches/$4 (sold during the warmer months), and hot cocoa for 1 punch/$2 (sold during the winter months).  Cash will still be accepted as payment as well.  All proceeds benefit MEF.
