Fall Festival items needed
The annual MTCS fall festival is a highly-anticipated, fun-filled day, and is coming up in just a few weeks. It is our largest fundraiser of the year and takes everyone working together for it to be a success. Each class sponsors a booth and is responsible for items and providing volunteers for that booth. Our Patrons Association has provided a fall festival checklist to help parents keep track of items that are requested.
