FOM has been working on making wishes come true this month!
Through its regular fundraising, as well as a very generous anonymous donation from a former McPherson student, FOM has allocated budget for fulfilling many teacher requests. Fulfilled wishes range from post-it notes and dry-erase markers to field trips and full class sets of teaching resources!
It is so much fun to be able to award these gifts and we hope that they make a difference.
If you are interested in donating an item from the wishlist directly, please contact Denise Burch. Or if you’d like to fund the Wishlist Program through a financial donation, please feel free to use our online Donate Now form.
Here are just a few of the wishes that are being delivered this week! There are many more in the works!
FOM will be working with McPherson this year to improve the information available for current students and parents, as well as prospective parents. To that end, we are looking for folks who are interested in advising on these improvements and who want to help shape the information and its presentation on the McPherson school website. Please let us know if you or someone you know might be an asset to this team!
Ever dreamed of working in the movies? Well, this is your opportunity. Led by FOM member and professional producer/director Joel Sacramento of Meter Studio, this committee will plan, coordinate, film, edit and publish a short video to orient folks to the many great things that happen everyday at McPherson.
Help is needed in the areas of: theme development, interview scheduling, participant waiver processing, materials acquisition, general support, and more!
There is plenty to do and we are happy to have your help on this awesome project. If you’re interested in helping, please contact Denise Burch or drop in on one of our monthly meetings to get involved.
