Get Involved with the International Festival...Coming April 28
April 28, 2017
Good Morning! Middlebrook's International Festival is coming April 28th, and we hope to get more Middlebrook families who are interested in continuing the success of this annual celebration of our school's diversity. This event offers something for the entire family and has food, entertainment, craft and game tables, raffles, and more. We need all levels of involvement, so even if you don't have a lot of time, we can still find something for you to do! Here are various ways you can lend a hand:
  • Planner? Join the Int'l Committee and be a part of the entire planning process
  • Tenacious? Help us get Restaurant and Raffle Donations
  • Creative? Develop and organize a Craft or Game Table representing a country of your choice
  • Cook? Bring an Int'l Dish or Dessert (or even ask Grandma or Aunty)
  • Helper? Just want to help the night of the event? We need help for setup and cleanup.
  • Designer? Design/Print the Evening Program/Restaurant Cards/Event Flyers
  • Play dress up? Get your child to dress up and be a part of the International Parade of Nations. We also need donations for our International photo booth (cultural items such as costumes, hats and other props that represent different countries)
  • Organizer? Help with recruiting and organizing student volunteers (they will get community hours)

Please let us know how you want to help....Email Grazi Carletto at or Melanie Flavin at

Good morning! I'm looking to recruit some volunteers for this years school store in order to make this year as much of a success as last. Unfortunately, I have lost a few devoted helpers to middle school, so I'm looking to you guys for help. Please let me know if you will be able to help out this year again, OR if you could spread the word to friends and neighbors who may be interested in helping out. It would be especially helpful to get some Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade parents involved.

The first School Store is next THURSDAY 9/22 from 11:15-1:30 (I can't do Friday's anymore). Please let me know if you would be able to help out next week. Anytime you can give, would be helpful!

Thanks so much, Christy

Golf Tournament

Attention Golfers! The Annual Fathers' Club Golf Tournament will be on Monday, May 8th! Cost is $185 and it supports all the elementary schools in Trumbull! Questions? Contact David Galla or Ruth Fontilla. Space is limited, so get your forms in early! This might be a wonderful early Father's Day gift (or Mother's Day, as it is not just for Dads!). There is also a way to send a message to a golfer on the course by buying a sign!

Have you joined the PTA yet ? Some benefits of PTA membership include getting to vote on PTA matters, getting/continuing to get PTA emails and receiving the PTA directory. And there's much more than that. Also, if you would like to be in our directory, please join by October first. By that point, we will start putting the directory together with the membership that has already joined.
