PTA President's Message

Dear Parents,
Multicultural Night was incredible!  I hope you attended this celebration of our cultural diversity at our school.  The kids are all so talented, the decorations were beautiful, and the food was delicious.  The evening did not disappoint!  It took a village to put it all together, but I wanted to especially thank Denise Patrick, Jessica Mattioli, Sucharita Puli, and Tanya Hamanaka for their leadership to ensure an event we will all remember.  As we look forward to Thanksgiving, I am personally so thankful for everyone who consistently show up to provide all these opportunities for our kids and families.  MCN really embodies who we are with the different cultures and our great sense of community.  I look forward to more engaging events throughout the school year.
Happy Thanksgiving! And Go Seals!
Sandy NelsonPTA President

Thank You from the MCN Committee 
We had a fabulous global celebration on Friday night! The Multi Cultural Night was a chance for the families of our school to come together and share a taste of their cultural region through song, dance and food. The night was inspiring for everyone present and made us proud to be a part of such a diverse community. Special thank you to Alex Agan, our parent volunteer DJ, the Carlmont Key Club volunteers, and all the event and committee volunteers for putting in the time and energy to make that night fun for everyone. And a special thank you to the PTA for sponsoring this schoolwide event, which wouldn’t be possible without your generous donations.
