Mid-Autumn Moon Festival
Join us for our second Mid-Autumn Moon Festival at Jie Ming
Friday, October 13th
6:00pm to 8pm

We need your help… 
Food Preferences 
We are excited to offer several meal options at the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival. Help us plan by filling out this meal preference survey by Oct 9. 

Silent Auction, Great Gathering, and Material Donation:
Please complete the donation form and return it to school by Oct 9. 

Volunteers Needed 
We are looking forward to an evening of crafts, fun, and most importantly community. We have dedicated group planning the event, but we need volunteers at the event. Sign up using the link below. Invite others to sign up, as well. Many hands make light work. 

Connect with parents on our secure and private communication platform. Konstella enables you to stay informed about events, volunteer sign-up opportunities, announcements, and be a part of searchable class directories. Over two-thirds of our families are on Konstella.

box tops for education
Box Tops for Education 
Jie Ming collects Box Tops for Education from products that families buy at stores. The school earns 10 cents for every Box Top collected! 
Our next Box Tops submittal to General Mills is due in mid-October. Please send your Box Tops to school in a zipped baggie and have your child give them to his/her teacher.
Submission deadline: 10/13/17

Note: the Box Tops container by the front office for Hamline Elementary, is NOT Jie Ming.

Thank you for your time and help with this program. Any questions, please contact Tricia Lawrence.
