Looking for translators: The MHS PTSA is looking for people who can translate some of our emails from English to Spanish. It is mostly light translation, but we are hoping to get a few people so we can spread the work around. This is a volunteer job you can do from home – no meetings are required! If you can help, please contact Rina Beder or Joan Capaldi.

Here are some of our fundraising activities this year:
- STOP & SHOP: You Shop, MHS Benefits. Registration is now open for the 2014-15 Stop & Shop A+ Bonus Bucks Program. Last school year, MHS earned more than $5,600 and the District earned almost $25,000…just by grocery shopping! This year’s program starts on October 3rd, so please make sure you are registered. PLEASE NOTE: registration requirements have changed this year: if you were registered for the A+ program last year and designated MHS, you don’t need to register again this year. However, if you didn’t participate in the program last year or didn’t designate MHS as one of your two schools (or you just don’t remember what you did!), please go to www.stopandshop.com/aplus today and enter our school ID code, which is 09341, or search for MHS under Mamaroneck. Encourage your neighbors, friends and family to register as well – even if they live in a different town or state they can still sign up to raise money for Mamaroneck! Remember, you can support up to two different schools per card, and if there were any changes to your school selections, you must re-register. Any questions, please email Ellen Howse at HowseBusiness@att.net
