Teacher Appreciation Dinner

The Mirage PTSA likes to provide dinner for our hardworking teachers during their busiest week….Parent/ Teacher Conferences!

Last night, with a lot of help from our friend Roy Chisnell (GM of Sauce @ Norterra), we were able to spoil the teachers with quite the spread. They had amazing pizzas, pastas and salads. Desserts and drinks were provided by Mirage PTSA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a great way to show our teachers how much we appreciate them! We had a lot of FUN! If you would like to be a part of this awesome PTSA team, look for membership forms on our bulletin board located by the main entrance of the school. Or contact us via email at mirageptsa@gmail.com and on Facebook! It’s only $5 to join!

 

If you’d like a night off of dinner duty, head on over to Sauce @Norterra for their awesome pizza and delicious mac n’ cheese! saucepizzaandwine.com

 

Happy Principal’s Day

A Few Things…

**Cookie Dough Orders can be picked up  Wednesday, October 11th from 2:45 to 6pm. We will not send orders home with students, a parent must come to the school to pick up orders. We will be set up in the Music Room located near the cafeteria. We look forward to seeing you!
**On Thursday, October 12th is our second General meeting of the 2017-2018 school year! We will be discussing upcoming events, volunteer opportunities and last year’s financial audit. The meeting will take place in the Mirage Library from 6-7pm. Speaking of volunteer opportunities, have you been volunteer trained? If not, training will take place prior to the General meeting from 5-6pm! Please join us and see what we’re all about!
**Mirage families, please keep clipping those box tops! Our Box Tops Drive ends on Wednesday, October 18th so there’s still plenty of time to help our school!
**The Book Fair and Parent Teacher Conferences are the week of October 16th-October 20th. Be sure to stop by the Mirage Library and check out the Book Fair while you’re there attending conferences. On Thursday, October 19th the Mirage PTSA will host a Teacher Appreciation Dinner for our hardworking teachers. The food this year will be provided by Sauce@Norterra! What a treat!
**And last, but certainly not least, we have the FALL FESTIVAL just around the corner on Friday, November 3rd! We’ve got bounce houses, an awesome DJ, great food and Henna tattoos! All we need is you! If you can spare an hour of your time that evening and volunteer to take tickets or help us set up/clean up, we would greatly appreciate it! Please email us at mirageptsa@gmail.com, message us on Facebook or come see us in person at the General meeting!

Thank You Letters from our 5th Graders

The Mirage PTSA volunteers our time for the students and teachers of Mirage Elementary. Every kid deserves every opportunity to succeed and to have a little fun, which is why we do things like the Back to School Bash and Fall Festival. With that said, the 5th graders at Mirage are working on their letter writing skills and composed Thank You letters to the Mirage PTSA.

These letters meant a lot to the board, so we thought we’d share with our PTSA members and our Mirage families. They all say the same thing, but a few stood out due to some awesome artwork!

If you would like to join the Mirage PTSA, we will have membership forms available at our next General Meeting on Thursday, October 12, 2017 in the Library from 6-7pm! Feel free to contact us via email at mirageptsa@gmail.com  with any questions or concerns, or message us on Facebook! We’d love to hear from you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Box Tops Drive

Our Box Tops Drive runs the whole month of September and through October 18th, so please keep clipping those Box Tops and sending them to school with your kiddos! Make sure they have not expired, as those will not be accepted. The class that collects the most Box Tops (Pre-K through 3rd Grade) (4th Grade through 6th Grade) will win an ICE CREAM PARTY! And let us not forget 2nd place because they will win a COOKIE PARTY!

Have you checked out the new Box Tops Bonus App!? You can earn DOUBLE points for the school by simply scanning your receipt. The Bonus App helps our school as a whole but will not count towards individual class totals.  Check it out! It’s an easy way to help boost your PTSA and our goals for the school year!

Mirage PTSA appreciates all that you do! Please contact us with suggestion or comments at mirageptsa@gmail.com

There were some very important papers that came home with your kiddos today!

  • COOKIE DOUGH ORDER FORMS!
  • BOX TOP FLYER
  • FRY’S REWARDS FLYER

The Cookie Dough fundraiser was our biggest and best last year and we are hoping for even more success this year. Our Box Tops Drive runs twice a year and is always one of our favorite fundraisers because we get offer and Ice Cream Party and Cookie Party to the classes that bring in the most Box Tops! Who doesn’t love Ice Cream and Cookies? But let us not forget the Fry’s Rewards…. it does not take from your Fry’s Rewards points and a portion of the money you spend grocery shopping goes directly to Mirage! A win-win! These fundraisers allow us to put on your favorite Mirage events, such as the FALL FESTIVAL, the Holiday Shoppe and Family Bingo Night! Speaking of FALL FESTIVAL, we will be going over details at our next General Meeting which is scheduled for October 12th, 6pm-7pm in the Mirage Library. We hope to see you there!

The Cookie Dough order forms need to be turned in no later than September 13th! The Box Tops Drive will run the whole month of September and will be collected on October 11th! Fry’s Rewards contributes to your PTSA all year long…. you must renew each year and if you haven’t signed up already… what are you waiting for? It’s easy!

We do hope that you will contribute to these fundraisers and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us at mirageptsa@gmail.com!
