MIMS families, teachers, and PTO are so grateful to our fall donors. These companies and families donated to our fall auction. Combined with our sociables, the fall fundraising efforts raised almost $25k. These fundssupported our $18k donation to the Spark Park at MIMS – allowing us to complete the Spark II. The funds also go towards buying teachers new speakers, new microphones for the cafeteria, and subscriptions to the tools your teachers request for their classrooms. Thank you all for your work and contributions!
Join us for the next Fu Friyay!! November 18 at the French Riviera on Chimney Rock. We will meet after drop off in the morning (~8:30 am). If you have never joined, this is a great way to meet other parents, ask questions, and socialize. See you there!
If you are considering MIMS for 2023, this is also a great way to get to know parents at the school, ask questions, and make connections!
Celebrate Hallowe’en with MIMS with a Trunk or Treat, followed by a MIMS Movie Night (showing Hocus Pocus). Everyone: bring your kids in costume to Trunk or Treat!
Trunk or Treat
Parents, sign up to host a “trunk.” You’ll decorate your trunk, provide candy or treats, and the kids will come walk through!
We’ll have one prize for a best decorated trunk. Please remember this is a family-friendly event. Keep your trunk PG and if it’s scary, please notify us so we can position your car appropriately.
Sign up here to reserve your Trunk or Treat spot.
Can’t bring your car? You can for sure sign up to share candy!
Trunk or Treat runs from 6-7, if you’re hosting a trunk, you can start parking around 5:30 pm.
We’ll be showing Hocus Pocus (Rated PG), starting at 7:30 pm.
If you host a trunk and are also going to movie night, request your reserved spot!
If you are just attending Trunk or Treat, please park on the street or in St George’s lot.
