Family Nights

MME PTA hosts a number of Family Nights throughout the school year. Come to one or all! We’d love to see you there!

Math & Literacy Night Series
PTA supports the Math & Literacy Nights @ MME Program where parents can come PLAY MATH GAMES with your child, TAKE HOME GAMES to help your child, EAT SNACKS, and LEARN about our math and literacy curricula and how you can help your child.  MME will host several Math and Literacy Nights over the course of the year, and at each event you will have the opportunity to learn new information. These events are open to all families Grades K-6, and there will be games appropriate to every grade level and in English & Spanish. Come join us. It will be fun!

MME Family Movie Nights

Join the fun with your fellow MME families for Movie Nights at MME!  We will be showing movies on the “big screen” in the MPR, so bring your blankets, pillows, dinner, snacks, and anything to make you comfy and settle in for a fun night with your family and MME schoolmates!  MME Family Movie Night is sponsored by the PTA and is free for our MME families and community.

We hope to host multiple Family Movie Nights this school year at MME to promote fun family activities at MME.  We would like to get 4-5 people to participate on the Family Movie Night Committee; this will be an easy commitment where we meet a few times throughout the year to discuss & recommend movies to be shown at MME, and help set up and/or pop popcorn, etc.

If you would like to help or have any questions, please contact the Family Movie Night Committee Chair Nathalie Minya at nathalieminya@gmail.com.

His temperament leads him to anger management class, where he meets fellow misfits Chuck (Josh Gad) and Bomb. Red becomes even more agitated when his feathered brethren welcome green pigs to their island paradise. As the swine begin to get under his skin, Red joins forces with Chuck and Bomb to investigate the real reason behind their mysterious arrival. Find out why the birds are so angry!

Max (Louis C.K.) is a spoiled terrier who enjoys a comfortable life in a New York building until his owner adopts Duke, a giant and unruly canine. During their walk outside, they encounter a group of ferocious alley cats and wind up in a truck that’s bound for the pound. Luckily, a rebellious bunny named Snowball swoops in to save the doggy duo from captivity. In exchange, Snowball demands that Max and Duke join his gang of abandoned pets on a mission against the humans who’ve done them wrong.

*Moana (PG): In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by the Demigod Maui reaches an impetuous Chieftain’s daughter’s island, she answers the Ocean’s call to seek out the Demigod to set things right.Want to Join the Family Movie Night Committee and help plan future events & select movies?

Montgomery Day 
Tuesday, June 6th 2017  4:00pm-7:00pm

Come One, Come All! Step Right Up and Have A Ball!  There’s Something For The Entire Family at Montgomery Day on Tuesday, June 6th, 2017 from 4:00pm – 7:00pm!

 All activities, music and  games are FREE; Slightly Skewed & Kona Ice products will be available for purchase. 

Here is a little information to maximize the fun for everyone:

  • This is not a drop-off event; a responsible parent/guardian needs to be with your kids & monitoring them at all times.
  • Water slides will be open for kids & adults!  If you plan to enjoy the water slide, please wear a SWIMSUIT and bring your own TOWEL.
  • There will be airbrushed and glitter tattoos. Tattoos are waterproof, so kids can still get wet and enjoy the slides.
  • Families can bring their own picnic and/or purchase food from our excellent vendors!
  • In order for EVERYONE to enjoy this event – especially parents who volunteer at events all year long – we have hired attendants to run all of the activities.
  • PLEASE do your part by depositing all of your trash in the appropriate cans and cleaning up any messes that you or your kids make.  The idea is to keep clean-up to a minimum!

  • One act per student, including group acts
  • All songs/acts/lyrics must be school appropriate
