The Mount Morris PTSA would like to get your feedback on future fundraisers! They have created a poll on their Facebook page to see which fundraisers our community would be most interested in supporting this Spring. You can contribute to the poll by clicking on the following link: https://www.facebook.com/mountmorrisptsa. Proceeds from fundraisers benefit the PTSA and their programs such as Family Fun Night activities, the School Supplies Fund, Birthday Books, Imagination Library, Kids Christmas Shoppe, Teacher Mini Grants and other special events throughout the year!
A huge THANK YOU goes out to everyone who provided support for our 13th annual Coaches Vs Cancer Fundraising Event! In addition to cash donations, we also had many amazing volunteers who planned, set up, worked the event and donated prizes to be raffled off! This event was a full day of on-court action, Mount Morris versus York. Spectators were able to purchase raffle tickets for prizes that were raffled off during the Varsity games and many people enjoyed a chicken BBQ from our Junior and Senior classes who were raising money for their senior trip. Leading up to this special event, each athlete on our Girls JV and Varsity Basketball teams shot 100 fundraising free throws over the course of two weeks as a pre-event fundraiser. The girls in the program obtained sponsors who donated per free throw scored or a flat donation of their choice. The JV and Varsity Girls basketball teams raised nearly $1,000! Through all of the generous donations received, t-shirt sales, and items that were raffled off the day of the Coaches vs Cancer Event, altogether we raised over $3,200! 100% of all proceeds will go to local families battling cancer and the regional American Cancer Society. If you are considering donating to next year’s event or to find out how you can help in other ways, contact MMCSD at (585) 658-5037. Thank you, Mount Morris, York and surrounding communities for your continued support!

Congratulations to our Athletes of the Week, Adam Galvin and Izariah Rowley! “Adam is a ferocious lefty who leads our team in points on the season, getting the team off to a great start. Adam scored 11 points in a win against a solid Pavilion team, 12 points against Perry and 6 in a tough, close loss to Warsaw last week. Adam is extremely tough on the low block, with opposing coaches switching their best defensive player to guard him every game,” said Coach Connolly. “Izariah is an absolute blast to have on the team! She brings good character and puts in extra work not just for herself but for the entire team. She shows enthusiasm and great work ethic and is an awesome team player to have all around,” said Coach Mancuso.
