Top of the Lot Raffle Winner Is…

And-the-winner-is___

The winner of the PTSA Top of the Lot parking space raffle is Adam Luck.

The PTSA will purchase the parking space of Adam’s choice for the 2014/15 school year. In addition to prime parking, Adam will also enjoy one free lunch at McDonald’s each week.

The proceeds from the Top of the Lot Raffle are already hard at work at our school. Thanks to your support, the PTSA has purchased an additional set of AP Chemistry books so that MCHS can open another AP Chemistry class next year. Remaining funds will benefit the MCHS  PTSA Scholarship Fund and the STEM fund. Thanks for your support!

SECRETARY:
Can you come to one meeting a month? The secretary records the minutes of all Board meetings and maintains records and rosters for the PTSA. As a Board member, the Secretary has a vote in all Board decisions.

HOSPITALITY CHAIRPERSON or CO-CHAIRS:
Do you love throwing a good party?  Do you enjoy caring for people by creating an occasion?  Do you have good organizational skills and a knack for creating a festive gathering on a budget?
The PTSA is seeking people just like you to chair and be a part of the Hospitality Committee.  You and a friend or two can contribute you talents to MCHS by caring for the faculty and administration through hospitality.  You write the script on this opportunity…a lunch each quarter or a concentrated week of appreciation in May; a one man show or 10 friends each taking a month.  Please consider helping with this much appreciated, face to face way of saying “thank you” to our valuable MCHS staff.

FEATURES EDITOR:
Looking for a way to contribute that offers a completely flexible schedule? The Features Editor would help generate content for the Creek Week eNewsletter. For instance, we would like  to highlight the many assorted student clubs at MCHS.  Each club has a faculty advisor and a student leader. All the Features Editor has to do is coordinate with those leaders to create a feature about the activities of the club.

For more information, please contact Carman Webb at cgwebb@me.com

Extra Tickets for Graduation

ticket_0Senior Parents, in an effort to help with the limited number of tickets available to each family for graduation, we are going to use a lottery to distribute the few extra ticket (approximately 100) to families that are in need of an extra ticket.  Families interested can simply go to the Middle Creek website home page and find the link on the top menu bar entitled Graduation Tickets.  This link will allow you to enter a small amount of information so we will know who is interested in an extra ticket.  The link will be open through next Thursday, June 5th.   Information will posted on the website next week regarding how to find out if an extra ticket was awarded though the lottery.  We regret that we will probably not have enough extra tickets for all families that are interested one, but hope that our efforts to not waste the extra seats are appreciated.

Congratulations Seniors!

Group Of Students Celebrating Graduation and Throwing CapsTo all of the Seniors and Families leaving us this year: Thank you for allowing us to be part of your lives.

We wish you “Good Luck” and “Good Journey” in all of your life’s endeavors.

Summer Break 2014

Ahhh… It’s here. Summer break. Time to relax our brains, unwind and enjoy a well deserved break. We here at MCHS PTSA will be doing the same. This will be our last post for this school year. But don’t fret, we’ll be back, well rested, very bright and very shiny in the Fall.

 

From all of us here at the PTSA: Enjoy your break. Enjoy Your Summer. We’ll see you in the fall.

Your Hard Earned Donations at Work

Last year, through your generous donations, the PTSA was able to help MCHS add a new AP Biology class by purchasing the text books required. This year, we have the honor of doing the same with adding a new AP Chemistry class for the coming 2014-15 school year.

chromebAlso, we are supporting the school’s STEM program by helping the MCHS purchase Google Chromebooks for Education, a Wake County initiative to introduce better mobile online learning in the classroom.

 

 

The PTSA wants to say thank-you many times to everyone that supports the PTSA and the academics at Middle Creek High. Without you and your support these programs could have never happened.
