Boosterthon Dolphin Dash

  • The annual MES Dolphin Dash is the PTA’s number one fundraising activity of the year. Our school community did an amazing job and far exceeded our goal! 

    We would like to thank every person in our community who made a pledge and/or helped students collect pledges. And, of course, we thank our students who stretched themselves to achieve a record amount of pledges. Lastly, we appreciate everyone’s understanding as the weather forced us to pivot from a Fun Run to a Dance Fit Challenge! If you thought these kids could run, you should have seen how they danced!

    • Student Enrichment – Events such as Family Science Night, Variety Show and Book Fairs. 
    • Teacher Support - Classroom supplies and books, teacher appreciation lunches, morale boosting tokens of appreciation, funding for specials (e.g. musical instruments, P.E. equipment, art supplies, library books) and funding for Support Staff needs (e.g. SEL kits, Intervention materials, Fluency Matters books for ESOL). 
    • Wellness Promotion – Recess bags for every class to add fun to their field time, Field Day for all students. 
    • Technology Innovation – Grant funding available to any teacher or student with an innovative idea, equipment for efficient dismissal procedures.
