MBEF Appeal Ends 2/15
GV AT 76% OF ITS PARTICIPATION GOAL
Thank you to those families who have donated and congratulations to Mrs. Guelff’s class for 100% participation
! Without parent donations, our schools would not enjoy the many programs that the CA state budget cannot provide. Many companies have a matching gift program and this will count towards your donation.
Classes with 75-94% participation will receive $200 in classroom supplies and those that reach 95% and above will receive $250 in supplies to use this year. Classroom stats to date
. Please consider donating at mbef.org/givetoday

Thieves Ruin Harvest
SCHOOL GARDEN PLUNDERED
After school and on weekends our teachers have witnessed children stealing produce from the Growing Great Garden while their caregivers simply stood by. The Garden Club had been waiting patiently for a bountiful harvest to sell at our farmers market and they are devastated by the destruction. Please educate caregivers and remind children about staying out of the school garden.
