The MSK PTG is hosting the annual Staff Appreciation Breakfast on Wednesday, May 17th, to show our thanks to the wonderful staff members of MSK. This breakfast would not be possible without the help of the fantastic parents of the children here at MSK. *Please note that this is a late start morning and the teachers will enjoy all this before our kids even arrive at school.
We will need help on that day, as well as help with food donations. If you are able to assist in any way, we would really appreciate it!
-set-up: Wednesday 5/18 at 6:30 am (6-8 people)
-serving: 7:15-8:15 am (6-8 people)
-clean-up: (6-8 people)---from about 8:15 until 9:00 am
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help that morning.
2. Food and/or Monetary Donations:
All food donations can be dropped off Tuesday, May 17th between 7:30 and 4:00 in the office (there will be a cooler there), or between 6:30-7:15 am on Wednesday morning, May 18th.
To make this easier, we have listed suggested donation items by grade:
6th grade: Juice and Water (apple, cranberry, OJ, bottled water)
7th grade: Prepared fruit (washed and cut up) in large zip-top bags or disposable containers---each person can do just one or two types of fruit. We did this last year and were able to combine them all into a large bowl for a fantastic fruit salad!
8th grade: Baked Goods (Pastries, Muffins, Breads----Homemade or Store-bought). Gluten-free options would also be appreciated!
Please contact us at email@example.com if you are able to donate any of these items (and specifics of what you will be bringing, if possible). This way we will know what we will have and what we might need.
We would also be happy to accept monetary donations, which may be dropped off at the office any time between now and May 17th. (Checks can be made out to MSK PTG.) Your money will go toward rounding out the morning’s menu. Thank you for your help, and for your continued support of the PTG!
