  • MLC Giving Tree

    Hello wonderful MLC community,

    You may have noticed our MLC giving tree situated in the hall near the front office. This is a way for MLC families to support other MLC families during the holiday season and the rest of the year. We all know how stressful this time of year can be. If your family is in need of support, we have attached a gift list that can be filled out and dropped off with your child's teacher or the front office. You can also use this link to virtually submit the form. Due to the limited time that we have available prior to the winter break we would appreciate having returned forms ASAP.

    If you and your family are able and willing, please consider supporting a family in need by sponsoring a family's gift list, or contributing to the giving tree by dropping off toys, a check or gift card to the front office. MLC is happy to shop for you.

    As we enter this season, let us show all our families the kindness and empathy that define our MLC community.

    Thank you,

    Jeanette Scantling

  • High School Leadership class Fundraiser.

    The High School Leadership class is doing fundraising in conjunction with the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CommuniCare foundation. Each dollar that the we raise will be matched by $10 from the foundation. Your donation of $10 becomes $100. A donation of $50 becomes $500!! The money we raise we will then be granting out to local non-profit organizations in the Portland area. This both serves our broader Portland community, but also gives us students the professional experience of evaluating grant proposals and interviewing representatives from the non-profits that apply. Our goal is to raise $1,500 so we have $15,000 to distribute to these non-profits. An added bonus is that up to 25% of the matching funds we receive can be used to support programs or projects at MLC. (That could be $3,750!) Please read our mission statement below to get a sense of the type of non-profits we are looking to fund, and then make a donation today!

    The Leadership Class, with the support of the Metropolitan Learning Center community, is interested in working with you to promote environmental stewardship and equitable housing in the Portland metropolitan area. We believe that quality shelter and a healthy environment are fundamental rights that all living beings deserve and are imperative to our collective future. We wish to create a safer and more equitable urban environment for people of all races, genders, and classes as well as for domesticated and wild animals. Our Leadership Class will achieve these goals by funding programs such as animal shelters, homeless shelters, protections for renters, park services, and community services. We want to prioritize organizations that serve marginalized communities.

    You can use School Pay if you prefer to use a credit card, or you can send your donation check to the school office; made payable to “MLC”.

    Thank you for your support.
    Sincerely, The Leadership Class
