Message from Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank:


We had an AWESOME turn out at banking today, starting 2023 off with lots of Mullen-Hall savers!!  This month we are raffling off a $50 bowling gift certificate, very generously donated by Timber Bowling in downtown Falmouth.  Each time students bank in January they are entered to win, the winner will be drawn on Feb 3rd.  The national raffle is for a $40 Lego gift certificate.  Students who bank at least 3 times by Valentines Day are automatically entered in the national drawing.  


Our winners at the end of 2022 were 4th grader Holley Desorgher and 2nd grader Finn Benson who both took home a Martha's Vineyard Bank piggie bank.  


We would love to have at least 10 new bankers join us in 2023, come see us in the cafeteria on Friday mornings to sign up!  Martha's Vineyard Bank automatically deposits $1 when you sign up and the students receive a lanyard to bring their money back and forth to school.  See the link at the bottom for the signup sheet.  


Message from the Coalition for Children:

Play & Learn Groups are interactive programs offering children a safe, literacy-rich environment to explore their world and develop new friendships. Parent-child classes have numerous benefits for your child's social-emotional skills and development (plus they're a lot of fun!). All groups with The Coalition for Children are FREE thanks to the Coordinated Family and Community Engagement (CFCE) Grant.
