Walkathon Fundraising begins on Monday, March 17th. It will take place during PE classes on April 14th and the theme is Animals Around the World. Not only will your child get to help a great cause, he or she will also be rewarded fundraising! This year the MJF PTO is offering prizes for raising $10 or more, as well as a grand prize for the top ten fundraisers: a trip to Skyzone with some special guests!
This year’s Family Fun Event will be held on Friday, May 16th from 5:30 to 8pm and features an international theme. Students will be issued a World Passport upon arrival that they can carry with them to various country-themed activities. For each completed activity they will receive a sticker and will be eligible for a raffle once they have six stickers in their passport. There will be an opportunity to pre-order pizza for families that wish to picnic that evening. The PTO is also looking for Sponsorship Families. Learn more here, if you’re interested. If you have any additional questions, or are able to volunteer, please contact the Event Chairpersons: Christine Jackson (firstname.lastname@example.org or Deb Hobday (email@example.com).
The yearbook committee is looking for photos of our MJF students doing good deeds. This year Alan Shawn Feinstein will donate money to leadership schools that highlight good deeds that their students are participating in. We are including ”Cool To Be Kind” pages in the yearbook to showcase all the great things our students have done this year on their own or through school activities such as Food Bank Bingo, Hat and Mitten Drive, Coat Drive, Food Drive, etc.
We are also looking for any candid photos from this school year (first day of school, class activities, etc) for the yearbook.
The photo submission deadline is April 1st. Please send your photos via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org

This past January, Myron J. Francis (MJF) participated in its 15th annual Food Bank Bingo. The cost of admission to the event was a non-perishable food item. All proceeds from the bingo including raffle ticket and bake sales, were donated to the Bread of Life Food Pantry. Over $1,000.00 and more than 145 non-perishable food items were donated to the Bread of Life Food Pantry. The Bread of Life Food Pantry is located at Newman Congregational Church at 100 Newman Avenue in Rumford and is open every second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 5-7PM. The pantry serves East Providence and surrounding communities in need. A special “thank you” goes out to Brook Ashley, MJF PTO Community Service Coordinator and all volunteers.
