This Week at Mayflower

1. Parent Workshop on Saturday, November 21: "Beyond Rewards" 9:00-10:30 AM. 

As a sequel to last year’s popular workshop, this presentation will allow for more discussion about the benefits of avoiding rewards and punishments.  Leah Popova, Parent Outreach Coordinator at MECC, will help explain the research supporting “beyond rewards,” field questions, and facilitate role-playing.  Sign up in the Parent Resource Center or by contacting Leah Popova: 612-825-5914 x105, This email address is being protected from spambots.

2.  There is no school on Wednesday, November 25. Childcare is available from 8:30AM-5:30 PM on that day for an extra fee. We have limited space. The Sign Up sheet for Childcare is at the Blue Welcome Desk. You will be invoiced for this extra childcare, and your reservation is non-refundable after November 18.   Our After Care staff hosts a lovely day of activities for children who attend.

3. Pointsettia and Amaryllis Bulb Sale! We are proud to partner with Bachman’s to offer beautiful Pointsettias and Amaryllis bulbs for the holidays.   You may order here and then drop checks (made out to MECC) in the box by the file folders. Paper order forms will also be available by the box. Thanks to parent John Urbin and his mentor, parent Kristi Fecik, for preparing our Pointsettia sale! Why not share this link with all your friends?!!

The final day to turn in orders and checks is Tuesday, November 24. 

 Plants will be available for pick up on December 16.


4. Did you know we have hot coffee and to-go cups in the Parent Resource Center every morning? And we have a tea kettle for making tea, and most of the time we have half and half too.  Come on in and enjoy after you drop off your children.  Or zoom by and pick up a cup.

5. MECC Parent Book Club! Join the MECC parent “book club!  Come participate in a casual, inspiring, and entertaining hour in the PRC.  Monthly discussions will be drawn from books, podcasts or articles.   Our first meeting will be on December 4th from 8:30 am- 9:30 am.  Stay tuned for more details regarding our first topic!
