Help us win the Participation Trophy for Ghosts & Goblins

On Friday, October 25th, please have your child come to school in a black shirt and black pants if possible.  We will be asking parent volunteers to come in and help us tape dots on every student’s shirt. The entire school will become one large group of dominoes.  If you are creative and would like to make your child’s domino shirt ahead of time, go for it! We will have helpers Friday morning taping dots on shirts of students who need them. 

We can’t wait to see “the domino effect”!  
As a school family, we work independently as do dominoes. When we do something kind for someone else it can impact another person.  In the Domino Effect, one good behavior impacts a positive change in another! We are “counting” on you to take part and be a positive change in others in our  MTE School Family!
