Plymouth town-wide yardsale fundraiser

Our first fundraiser of the year, MVCS families donate their gently used clothing, gear, furniture, books, etc. for sale in the town-wide Plymouth yard sale in September.

Don't have anything to donate? Here are other ways you can help:

  • pre-sale organization and pricing of items

  • pre-sale table set up

  • SELL, SELL, SELL! It's fun- make a day of it!

  • clean-up

  • transporting unsold items to nearby donation centers (helpful if you have a pick-up truck)

  • bake some cookies or mix up some lemonade for hungry buyers!

family fridays

Every other month, MVCS families come together for Family Fridays, which lets our children and their families explore the classrooms, inside and out, together. Family Committee provides refreshments in the woods at Fort Creek, and sometimes a bake sale or campfire! After visiting your child’s indoor classroom, stop by for some coffee or cider and explore the beautiful outdoor spaces.




winter gear / clothing swap

At MVCS, our kids need a lot of outdoor gear! Have hand-me-downs that are still in great shape and are just dying for another season at MVCS? Donate gently used boots, coats, hats, snow pants, etc. to our Winter Gear Swap. The family committee will compile and organize all donations, so that families can “fill in the gaps” for their kids’ winter apparel. 

Don't have anything to donate? Here are other ways you can help:

  • organize clothing by type and size

  • help oversee the Swap

  • clean up and stow or donate leftover items.

all-school winter solstice concert

Every winter solstice, the Family Committee organizes our Winter Solstice Concert and potluck supper for our families. An evening of songs, poetry, skits, and crafts ends with a buffet potluck. In addition to bringing a delicious, nut-free dish, there are so many ways you can help out!

  • Help plan the evening- come to a committee meeting!

  • Are you crafty? Run a craft table (ornament making or other winter craft)

  • Donate supplies for our craft table

  • Help set up the venue to make it look spectacular!

  • Stay and clean up while the kids play!
