Disney Raffle- The Disney Raffle is in full swing across Medford. If you have filled up an order form, please turn it in so we can return your ticket stubs. If you need more order forms you can print right from here. Raffle tickets continue to be sold at events around the city. The McGlynn PTG will be sponsoring tables at MetroRock and Salem Street Studio. If you have time to volunteer at one of these events, please let us know via the sign up list.
Mustang Spirit Store- The Spirit Store has started to receive entries for the sweatshirt design contest. We hope to get a cool new design for sweatshirts in time for Christmas. Spirit Store order forms also went out in folders this week. Both design contest entries and Spirit Store orders are due back November 16th.

Box Tops- The PTG will be running a Box Tops Contest from now until December 14th. Students are asked to complete a Box Top Contest entry form with 10 box tops or dimes to be entered into a drawing for a prize. The classroom who collects the most box tops will also get a prize. Forms will be distributed to classrooms this week or can be printed from this link. Our goal this year is to raise $1,000 in Box Tops. If we can pull together as a community and reach this goal, the PTG will give the whole school a prize on Fun Day!
