STEM Fair: Grades 5-8 were able to attend McCarthy’s STEM Fair. The Fair consisted of a mix of local companies such as Endeavor Robot, Zoll Medical, BAE Systems, and McLean Harvard, as well as High School clubs and classes, FLL League demonstrations, and more. Ask your child about it! Thank you to all parents, teachers, and companies who helped out!

Rock & Roll Bingo: Rock n’ Roll Bingo, PTO’s biggest event of the year, is just around the corner and we need your help. Last year, Rock n’ Roll Bingo raised almost $7500 that went directly to enrichment programs for our children. To make this event a success, we are asking for volunteers to help raise funds, collect donations for gift baskets, and work through all the logistics with us.
Get Box Tops Bandwagon! Free Money for McCarthy!
We are revamping the box tops program this year to increase awareness and generate more participation. We need your help! In order for this program to be successful, your influence on your students is so important. Last year, we raised $1,600 in money from box tops collections. We believe that we can raise so much more money through this program. It's free money sitting in families cabinets at home. We just need to collect them.
Students need to include their names and the teacher name on the bag when they submit the box tops. That's it! the PTO will do the rest. Remember that the Teachers are eligible for their own prizes, so be sure to include the teachers name too.
Please check out the website for special offers, coupons, and recipes.
Please also remember to make sure the box top is not expired and that you can see the three letter code on the upper left to ensure we get credit for the box top!
