Ongoing Events and Opportunities
Happiness is Having the Next Snack Prepared...
Please help keep our McPolin students fueled up and focused!
The PTO sponsors fresh snacks for the entire school on Tuesdays & Thursdays, but we need your help to provide additional healthy snacks for your classrooms on Mondays & Wednesdays!
Fresh & healthy options like mandarins, apples, pretzels, or goldfish.
We are steering away from individual packaging to decrease waste.
Please be sure to check in with your child's teacher for allergy restrictions!

A VERY special thank you to the Snack Team for Tues/Thurs fruit & vegetable pickup and drop-off from The Market!
McPolin Green Recycling Team is led by fifth-graders. These kids are working to raise awareness, educate, and take action to support our planet!
In partnership with EATS & Momentum Recycling, McPolin is tackling food waste diversion!
Bins will be placed in the cafeteria, and, with the help of school staff & volunteers, students will empty food waste in the large green compost bins. This will divert all of their food waste from the landfill to a local farm!

Unopened perishable food will be saved and stored in a donated refrigerator
This will be used for future snacks or donations with community partners
We DO need a few parents to volunteer to help catalyze our recycle and composting efforts!
