Winter Wonderland

Mohawk Trails Winter Wonderland Program

We are proud to present the 5th Annual Winter Wonderland Program this year to help any MTE students and families that may be in need in the coming months.  The Winter Wonderland Program anonymously connects families in need to those with a desire to help.  Items requested through this program are placed on a snowflake on a bulletin board located near the front of the school.  Each snowflake represents an item that has been thoughtfully requested by the child's parent or guardian to ensure that the child is receiving items that he or she both needs and wants this season. 
Please click on the link for more information on how to register to be a receiving family or how you can donate.  Mrs. Yoder can be reached at with any questions.
