Maquoketa Middle School
March is Music in Your Schools Month! Consider donating to our vocal music department to help pay for our new piano. We recently purchased a Yamaha from Foster’s music. The school paid $2500.00 and we are trying to raise $3000.00 by June. Any amount you would like to contribute would be greatly appreciated. Please contribute in the main office and let them know it is for the piano fund. We will place your name on the keyboard of donors. If you have any questions see or call Dean Wiese.
Again, your support would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for considering this important contribution to our Middle School.

Parents Wanting to Help
Often times during the middle school years parents are waning to get involved in assist the school but really do not know when, where or how. We are currently seeking volunteers to assist the school on March 4th and March 5th for the Charretts that will be held for the planning for the future of Maquoketa Middle School. We will have many community members attending this event and we would like assistance in the following areas: donation of bars/cookies, donation of water, donation of fresh fruit plates, or the donations for ingredients for a light meal for the architectural firm that will be assisting us in this event. We are also seek individuals that can assist us in welcoming community members into the building and assisting in the food an beverage aspects of the day. The bonus is that you can see the many different elements that go into to the planning phase of the project.
Please contact the school if you would be willing to donate some food or water for these events OR if you would like to donate your time. We appreciate any assistance that we will receive from the parents.
