    Recycle Day:  Thank you to all you volunteered your time, efforts, and stopped by to give us your stuff!  Recycle Day was a big success in large part due to our student volunteers.   Mark your calendars for May 9th – Spring Recycle Day!    

    Project 300:  Project 300 is the largest food drive in the Merrimack Valley!  It started with a goal of 300 cans, and now McCarthy students bring in over 35,000 cans each year!  If you can spare a can or two, please send in with your middle schooler.  Homeroom with the highest can count wins a prize!  Kids with over 75 cans get a T-shirt.  

    SCRIP Card Orders DUE:  Thinking about buying gift cards for the holidays?  Scrip cards are just that - Gift cards to your favorite places!  Restaurants, stores, gas stations, and more!  Order through MCPTO and a percentage of your purchase comes back to help fund enrichment programs.  Order forms will attached.  There will be two holiday orders - the first is due November 7th by end of school day and will be back before Thanksgiving, the second back before the Winter Break.   All orders due by 2:30, November 7th in the school office.  Retailer list can be found at  

    MCPTO Meeting:  Join the PTO for updates from the principal, school committee, and news on events, enrichment, and fundraisers! 

    Movie Night:  $5 donation gets you a movie, water, and popcorn!  Get your friends together and come to see Aladdin – Live Action!  Doors open at 6:30, movie starts at 7. The movie is open to the entire McCarthy Community, middle schoolers may be dropped off/ picked up, smaller children must have an adult with them.  Additional snacks, candy and waters available for purchase.  Raffles will be drawn at intermission! 

    Dining for a Cause Coordinator Needed:  Hello McCarthy Community.  The PTO would like to host a Dining for a Cause night in December so families can help McCarthy while dining out during this busy season.  We need a parent to coordinate this night – if you think you can help, please contact Theresa or Patti at – it’s not hard and we can help you!  Thank you in advance!

  • 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!
