MNS Annual Events
Valentine’s Day: Students are asked to create their own Valentine’s Box and share valentines with their classmates.
Easter: For our Easter celebration, we send home plastic eggs with the students and if parents desire, they may fill the eggs with goodies. We then hide the eggs in our classroom and have an Easter egg hunt.
Grandparent’s Day: Grandparents and other special elders are invited to join us for coffee, tea, and light snacks. They enjoy performances from various classes and have the opportunity to visit their grandchild’s class for a portion of the day.
Mother’s Brunch: Students invite a special lady in their life for a brunch.
Francesville Fall Festival Parade: All MNS children are invited to ride on the MNS float for the parade. The parade is the third Saturday in September at 2:00pm.
Christmas Program: Families are invited to attend our Christmas program where our 3 and 4-year-olds will perform musical selections. A cookie and punch reception is held after the performance with a special guest.
Park Day: As a celebration for their academic accomplishments, students spend an afternoon at the Francesville Park. Before playing at the park and enjoying a picnic, students perform for the residents at Parkview Haven retirement home.
Graduation: Preschoolers perform for their gathered guests, and all children are presented with a certificate of achievement. The ceremony is followed by a cookies and punch celebration in the cafeteria.
Pancake Breakfast: This is our first fundraiser of the year, which happens the third Saturday in September. Parents and students are asked to volunteer their time to make/serve a pancake breakfast to the community during the Francesville Fall Festival. More information will be sent out through the classroom newsletter.
Cookie Dough Sales: This is our largest fundraiser of the year and typically takes place in October. Parents and students are encouraged to ask friends and family to participate in purchasing cookies and other goodies.
Scholastic Book Orders: Parents, family members, and friends are invited to purchase books through our school code. MNS earns points from all purchases and then are able to purchase new books for the classroom.
