BINGO Night was the best ever!

Thank you to everyone that came out to play with us! This is our favorite event of the year, it’s totally free for our Mirage families to come eat pizza and play BINGO. We gave out a lot of great prizes, including some whole pizzas we had leftover and our I (Heart) Mirage PTSA t-shirts!

 

If you have any comments, questions or suggestions, we’d love to here them! Contact us on Facebook or at Mirageptsa@gmail.com

Holiday Shop is a Wrap

See what we did there….

Another successful Holiday Shop is in the books for Mirage PTSA. As always we are overwhelmed by your support. This event is stressful for us, but it makes it all worth it to help these kids learn the spirit of giving and how to budget. We recieved hugs and thank you’s from many students this year, which warms our hearts.

 

HUGE thank you to our volunteers this year! Lance(Treasurer), Nicole(Secretary) and Janine(Vice President) worked every day, every shift.  Holly Darr, Wil Johnson, Wendy Palmer, TJ Macaluso, Stacey Prozzi and Debi Stalteri were a big help this year as well!

 

Please take a moment to review the calendar on our website for upcoming meetings, events and fundraisers. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions, comments or concerns.

 

Thank you!

Holiday Shop Dec. 10th- Dec. 14th

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Oh what a night….

Fall Festival was so much fun this year! Here are a few of our favorite pictures from the night…

Questions, comments, concerns? Email us at mirageptsa@gmail.com

Fall Festival This Friday!

This is one of our favorite events of the year! There will be rides for the kiddos, carnival games run by each grade, a live DJ keeping everyone pumped up, Henna tattoos and delicious food!

Hopefully you have taken advantage of our PRE-SALE prices, if not, wristbands and tickets will be sold at the gate along with Henna Tattoo tickets. Wristbands are ideal for the kiddos, as they will get unlimited rides. Tickets can be used for rides, games and purchases. All the funds we earn go right back to the classroom, as the teachers turn in their tickets at the end of the night and we give them MONEY!

Mirage PTSA will be selling Cotton Candy, Popcorn, Water and Coffee at the event. We’ll also have tons of cool “swag” like smencils and glow bracelets, necklaces and headbands. We’ll also be debuting our brand new t-shirts- $6 for members and $12 for everyone!! Come by and see us!

Volunteers can check in at the first aid station to see where they’re stationed and pick up their awesome volunteer vest!

We can’t do this without you all and we appreciate your support!

See you tomorrow 5-8pm
