Books on a ShelfReading Rodeo & Círculo

Reading Rodeo & Círculo are an individualized and leveled daily take-home reading/book exchange program funded & coordinated by PTA volunteers, with support and guidance from teacher, for all Kinder-3rd grade students in the Traditional (Reading Rodeo) and TWBI/Spanish Immersion (Círculo) programs.

As well, this program has traditionally been supported during the summer months (June-August) with a weekly “Book Exchange” held Tuesday nights coinciding with the open times of the South Davis Montgomery Satellite Branch of Yolo County Library.

If you have any questions or if you are interested in being a weekly Círculo or Reading Rodeo volunteer, please contact our Círculo/Reading Rodeo Committee Chair Michelle Secrest at michelleinperu@yahoo.com.


 Books & Computers

MME PTA has dedicated a large percentage of it’s fundraised dollars to purchasing English & Spanish books for our main library and classroom libraries, especially supporting new teachers as they set up their rooms for the first time.  The PTA has also purchased Chromebooks and Chromebook Carts in a continuing effort to technologically enable all students at our school.

 Walker Creek Ranch6th Grade Outdoor Education Experience

Each year, the 6th grade students at MME are treated to the Walker Creek Outdoor Education experience. In this week-long science-based outdoor school, the students get an opportunity to learn about their natural world within a hands-on setting and they get to experience many wonderful moments with their 6th grade peers. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience where students get to stay in a cabin for 4 nights, hike, dance, and interact with other 6th grade students from our district.

6th Grade Outdoor EducationThis school year, the 6th grade students from MME will be attending Walker Creek Outdoor School from November 26, 2018 through November 30, 2018.  The PTA supports this special activity by supplementing a portion of the costs not covered by the district in order to remove some of the barriers of attendance that some of our families face.


Science Expo

MME PTA is proud to support the Annual MME Science Expo on Friday, May 3, 2019.  Our goal for the Science Expo is to promote and recognize science in everyday life and to highlight science-related careers.  Many of the activities and exhibits incorporate aspects of the district and state science standards, particularly with respect to experiential and hands-on learning to our students in K – 6th grades.  Many of these activities will be led by UC Davis and Sacramento City College students.

For more information, please contact Kim Patchett at kpatchett@djusd.net.
