Lost & Found!
The lost and found rack will be outside next week for you to peruse and grab your missing child(ren)'s items! What remains on Friday, January 15th will be donated to a local agency of need. Your PTO Armchair Quarterback Meteorologist / Newsletter Editor predicts it will be a blistery upcoming week when we are hopeful the children are returning to the warm and loving walls and hearts of The Bend, so make sure you remember to check the rack early next week!


Mercedes Kids Marathon
The Mercedes Kids Marathon for Kindergarten through 5th graders will be held on February 20, 2021. We hope your child(ren) will participate!

Do you have an incoming Kindergartener for next year? Help us prep and plan for their arrival by clicking here! While we won't be hosting official CBS playdates, we will send helpful updates and information to our parents and allow for our incoming class to begin communicating with each other informally. And if you know of any other CBS families with incoming Kindergarteners, please share this form and help us spread the word so that we can begin "getting to know' them! it's going to be a fabulous 2021!

Substitute teaching opportunity!

School starting in the fall is always exciting! We anticipate a shortage in substitute teachers and aides this school year. If you would like to join the MBS team as a substitute teacher, please contact Mary Ellen Janik at Kelly Services at maryellen.janik@kellyservices.com. You will need to complete an application for Kelly, go through their training process, and have a background check. Mary Ellen will be able to explain all the details.

You can substitute on the days that are convenient for you at the school of your choice. Come one, come all, we need you! Substitute teachers serve in a critical capacity. We only want the best for Mountain Brook students! Any questions, please contact Dr. Susan Cole, Director of Personnel, at 205-871-4608.

The PTO would like to THANK...

Mary Beth Dean, for all things Safety Patrol; Jennifer Jones, PTO Foundation Liaison; Stephanie Magnus, Print Media; & Our wonderful Faculty and Staff at CBS for bringing us home for another spectacular semester for our children.
