Leading into Thanksgiving and a season of giving, MSD's Community Connections Committee is partnering with PORCH-Durham to host a food drive. PORCH’s mission is to provide supplemental food to children and families facing hunger in Durham County. Established in 2011, PORCH-Durham works in partnership with a variety of Durham County nonprofit organizations and Durham Public Schools to identify children and families most at risk of hunger. For more information about the program, check out the PORCH-Durham website.
From Nov. 29th-Dec. 10th, families can drop off food in collection bins at the arrival gate (for Early Childhood and Elementary), outside the Toddler building, or outside the office. We need volunteers on December 13th between 8:30-10:30am to pick up the donations from MSD and deliver to the Child Food Hub in Durham. Please let Natalie know if you are able to help with this by emailing her at email@example.com. Click to see a list of most needed donation items and items that can not be donated.
If you haven't already scheduled your Parent-Teacher conferences, please contact Moriah ASAP. Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held in person (in the classrooms, masked and distanced). The Elementary conferences are student-led so your child will attend with you. The Toddler and Early Childhood conferences are for adults only. Students in Early Childhood and Elementary are eligible for the No-School camps during those conference days, if registered through the parent portal.
