MCE Back-to-School Fall 2023 TO-DO CHECKLIST




  • PTSA DUES:  Pay PTSA Membership dues here. An annual family membership is $17, regardless of how many children you have in the school district. If needed, a paper form can be found in the middle of the District Calendar. Paying your membership dues does not obligate you to join a committee. You are simply supporting the PTSA, which funds our kids’ field trips, Science Action, International Day, Moving-up Ceremony, and many more student enrichment programs. Check out the MCE PTSA website for a full list.

  • PTSA VOLUNTEER: The MCE PTSA is a great team….but we need more parent volunteers to make our team complete and keep our wonderful programs fully functional.  Sign up to volunteer here.


  • MCEXPRESS:  Sign-up for the MCE e-news, MCExpress, if you have not previously received it. This weekly communication provides information and reminders about what’s going on at MCE.  Included are messages from Ms. Clayton, MCE PTSA-sponsored events, MCE community news, district-wide news, and Pittsford community news.  Sign-up is available here.


  • DISTRICT E-NEWS:  Sign-up for District PTSA e-news only if you have never received this monthly email. Sign-up is available here.


  • URGENT E-MESSAGES:  Sign up for School District Urgent e-messaging only if you have not received the messages before. This service is the best way to find out about weather-related closures, delayed buses, and other last-minute information. PCSD families are automatically included in the email notification system, however- remember to update your contact information with your school registrar whenever there is change. 


  • MCE SPIRIT WEAR:  The first Friday of each month is MCE Spirit Day!  Kids and staff show their MCE pride in many ways, including wearing grade-level colors. Order your MCE Spirit Wear online starting September 13th through September 22nd. The Spirit Wear ordering link can be found here.
