Do you love MMS? Good food? Fun family time? Well, there's a way to get all three! The PTO frequently hosts fundraisers at local venues such as Lyon Cantina, Hungry Howies, Dairy Queen, and Aubree's. Check out the school calendar at the following link to see when the next fundraiser is coming up!
MMS SCHOOL CALENDAR
Need a fun way to have some laughs as a family? Head over to the South Lyon Salvation Army to play ultimate dress up. Each family member has to pick out an outfit for another member of the family. Then, everyone tries on the outfits at the same time. Whoever has the craziest outfit wins!
You might be the type to join a league. You might be the type who prefers bumpers. No matter the skill level, bowling is a great way to spend some time together as a family!
Police Station/Fire Department
There are many individuals who spend their time serving the community and keeping community members safe. As a family, find a way to thank them! Bake a batch of your favorite cookies to deliver to the Police Officers and Fire Fighters. Hand-write thank you letters. Go caroling at the stations during the Christmas season. This is a great way to spend time as a family and to give back to those who serve the community.
Not sure what to do this Saturday? Take a trip to the library to embark on the endless adventures that await! Spend some time where everyone has a chance to pick at least one book. Then, do some reading together in the library. The change in setting can provide additional motivation to engage in reading without the usual distractions. This is a great way for your child to keep up with those reading log minutes for class, too!
Another fun idea is to take turns picking out books for each other. Or, try finding a book everyone can agree on and read it as a family.
The libraries also offer great events and resources for the community. Check out the links below.

McHattie Park and Rail Trails
Get everyone unplugged for a few hours and head over to McHattie park for some baseball, sand volleyball, and the playground. This is a great way to get some fresh air. Taking a family walk or bike ride on the Huron Valley Rail Trail is a wonderful way to get everyone moving, too!
When winter comes, don't fret! Grab a sled and head over to the sledding hill at McHattie Park where the fun continues all year long.
