The past couple of years the PTA have asked students to sell Yankee Candle items in order to raise money. This year we have decided to do a 'No Frills' fundraiser. Many of you may be familiar with this idea. Instead of asking families to buy and sell items, we are looking for families to simply make a donation. Please click here for the details. As with any fundraiser, we thank you very much for your support!
Picture Retake Day is Monday, November 14th. Students can bring in their photo packet and give it to the photographer for a retake. Or a package can be ordered online by going to Lifetouch.com
The Fall Sports Season is over. Please help your student-athlete to return all uniforms.

Before I move onto the sports news, I want to share with the students that there were some concerns about the way the outside of the high school sports fields were left. While I know that it was not only Mahoney students that were playing around in the area behind the snack shack, I was very disappointed to see so much trash left behind. Like I say in the cafeteria, while the mess might not be all yours, please do not leave a mess for someone else to clean up.
Fall student-athletes please drop your uniforms off in the office as soon as possible.
