The MJF PTO would like to thank Melissa Stock for taking on the role as the new newsletter editor. We would also like to send out a very special thank you to both Jeff and Sonda Pimental for all of their hard work on previous newsletters as without them, there would not have been a newsletter. Melissa’s email is Melissa062574@yahloo.com and the deadline for newsletter submissions is the second Wednesday of each month. Thanks again!
