Community Partners


Our Community Partners are strong supporters of various areas of the school.  Without them, our students would not have many of the wonderful opportunities and experiences that they receive.

SilverGraphics Time is Here!

Preschool through Grade 8 students created awesome artwork for PTO's annual SilverGraphics fundraiser. Given current circumstances, this year's program is fully online where you can view your child's artwork, order keepsakes featuring their art and even upload other artwork. Orders will ship direct to you or any address you specify at checkout (shipping charges apply). Head to https://www.silvergraphics.com/shop and use the following access codes to find your child's artwork: MIW: MIWart20/ GMS (all grades): ART20GMS

Tip Jar Initiative 
In an effort to give back to our community we are partnering with 320ink & their TipJar Initiative. Please consider purchasing a t-shirt for $20. ALL proceeds go to the Cumberland Food Pantry. T-shirts will be printed/mailed directly to you. To order: http://ow.ly/MzKA50za1FQ
