The Parents’ Association
Our parents participate in a variety of ways, from helping in the classroom or library to accompanying class trips and organizing community events, including outreach and fundraising projects.
All parents are members of our Parents’ Association, which is integral to the success of the school. The Parents’ Association is involved in coordinating various events throughout the school year. Parents have endless opportunities to become involved in our school community and lend their expertise, from accompanying students on field trips to being guest speakers and organizing special events.
Daily Life at Mabin
Below you will find everything you need to know about day-to-day school life, including information about holidays, transportation to and from school, our hot lunch program, and more.
Snacks & Lunches
Mabin knows that healthy eating habits are essential in building a foundation for learning. All children bring a snack each day, which is to be eaten during morning recess. Candy, pop, and gum are not permitted. Children can either bring a packed, peanut and tree nut-free lunch from home, or participate in our healthy hot lunch program up to five days a week.
On the first day of school, all students from Grades 1-6 enjoy a family-style lunch, courtesy of Mabin, to celebrate the new school year. Our hot lunch program begins on the first Friday of school. If you are interested in participating in hot lunch, sign-up is now available at this link. Students who are NOT signed up for hot lunch should be sure to start bringing their own lunches on Friday of the first week of classes.
Within our school community, there are several students who have a potentially life-threatening allergy (anaphylaxis) to foods, predominantly to peanuts and tree nuts (e.g. almond, cashew, hazelnut, pistachio), sesame seeds, and mustard seed.
Please note: Our catering company does its best to provide allergen-free food for our students, but we can never promise to completely eliminate the risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction, so we appreciate your considerable efforts to help us minimize the risk to our vulnerable students.
Each year, we provide training to staff members in First Aid and Anaphylaxis which interested parents are welcome to join. If you are interested in attending the next Anaphylaxis training, please contact Dayana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
