A committee needs to be formed for this spring project. The project entails getting
professional analyses of the landscaping potential to further enhance the outer
appearance of our school. The committee will be responsible for devising and
implementing a plan to get supplies donated and also enlist volunteers to perform the
necessary work. If you are interested in this committee please contact Angi Speck at
866-0157 or medlarviewpto@yahoo.com.


The Spring Carnival is just around the corner! Please mark your calendars for April 23 to
join us “Under the Big Top”. The teachers have already started signing up for their
class’s theme basket that will be auctioned off LIVE! (The proceeds from these baskets
will be divided evenly among the teachers to purchase learning materials for their class)
We are asking that you donate a new item relating to their theme. You will be receiving
this information soon. If you have a business, and would like to donate an item or service in
addition to your child’s basket, please contact Co-Chair    Paula Cardenas 384-0092.

We are also looking for volunteers for various sub-committees. If interested, please
contact Paula Cardenas or Christy Snead, 865-0462 or at medlarcarnival@aol.com
We will appreciate anything!
