Each class at MNS visits the Book Fair during school to purchase books provided by a vendor. The MNS PTA keeps a portion of the sales, and additionally, thousands of dollars of books are purchased and then donated to our MNS classrooms.
We need volunteers throughout the book fair to help with the tasks of:
-helping the students select and pay for books
-staff the registers to process payments (cash, credit cards and checks)
-facilitate the teacher “gift-card” book donations
-set up and disassemble the book fair
Many hands make light work!!

The purpose of Lunch Club is to provide enriching experiences and activities to children as an alternative to recess. Past lunch club programs have included chess, Zumba, yoga, theater, board games, jewelry making, sewing, coloring, book club, rainbow loom, art and foreign language. Lunch club instructors are comprised of both paid instructors and parent and grandparent volunteers.
Some of the responsibilities of the lunch club chair or co-chair include the scheduling of activities during the students’ lunch periods, conducting a lottery to allocate clubs to students, notifying parents and teachers of students’ lunch club placements, managing and supervising students and instructors during lunch, notifying parents and teachers of any changes in their students’ lunch club schedule, and managing payroll for paid instructors.
Lunch club committee volunteers must commit to teaching at least one day a week (same day each week) for at least one lunch period (50 minutes) for an entire lunch club semester (10 weeks). Lunch club committee volunteers also supervise students while they eat lunch, maintain attendance, and prepare an activity for the club. Other responsibilities include attending the lunch club lottery, notifying parents and teachers of any schedule changes, and ensuring the children are safe.
As parents of first, third, and fifth grade students at MNS, and being involved in the lunch club program for many years, we must say that it gives us great pleasure to see the joy in the students faces each day they attend lunch club. It is a fun and exciting program that the children, families, and staff all value.

The MNS PTA hires an outside company to do the lice checks for the entire student body. Volunteers do NOT actually do the lice checks!
Volunteers are needed four days per year (from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm on those days), on the scheduled date of the lice check that follows each of the school breaks (2017-18 dates to be determined in September, January, February, and April).
Volunteers are necessary to help keep the classes on schedule as they funnel through the lice check room at their scheduled time. MNS has over 600 kids that are checked all in one day and every minute counts.
It’s a great opportunity to meet and greet each kid in the school and help out in a part-time way. It’s not glamorous but it is a lot of fun!
The MNS Talent Show is truly a fun-draiser! The show brings out the best in our little performers as well as raise money for MNS.
We need a lot of volunteers to put on a great show!
The event runs for two nights in late January or early February (2018 dates TBD) and you will be most busy during the month of January if you join the planning part of the committee.
Gathering performer’s names, songs, coordinating with all the parents of the performers are large parts of the job. The music is organized and handled backstage by volunteers. Also volunteers create the programs and print the programs.
The show itself requires volunteers who will take names and/or tickets at the door, man the snack bar, organize performers, etc. Also, there are parent volunteers who emcee the show.
