Thank you to everyone who has generously responded to our call for playground equipment donations. Almost everything from our wish list has been claimed, but there's still a couple of items left:
Donations can be mailed directly to school at the following address:
Medfield Heights Elementary
ATTN: Denise Stanley
900 Woodbourne Ave.
Baltimore, MD 21212
Or you can mail your items to your own residence and send them into school with your child. Either way works!
Thanks for helping to make recess fun for the kids! Please let us know if you have any questions.

The MHES Fall Scholastic Book Fair is Monday, October 21 through Friday, October 25 and We Need Your Help!
If you can volunteer to work a shift at the Book Fair please SIGN UP HERE!
Volunteering at the Scholastic Book Fair is very low key. Volunteers run the cash register, help kids to select their favorite books, and help kids to count their money at check out. You'll be placed alongside seasoned Book Fair volunteers and will be shown how to use the register. It's a fun and important event for the MHES community and we appreciate your help!
