Ways to Help
Parents are always welcome to attend our monthly field trips, and there are sign-up sheets in the hallway a week prior to the field trip for them to sign up and help us out! We also ask for parent support for parties and fundraising, sign-up sheets for these events are also posted in the hallway.
MDS host monthly board meetings which are the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 5:30. Attending these meetings helps support MDS. Childcare is provided.
Moscow Day School has four committees. Please indicate your email and which committee you would like to participate in. The Fundraising Committee, Grant Writing Committee, Maintenance Committee, and the Recruitment/Retention Committee.
MDS is always looking for cloth donations to keep extra clothes at MDS. We also are always looking for new books and manipulative. If you are willing to donate please contact Angel.
