PTA Information

Lollipop Fundraiser: A letter from our student government: "A BIG thanks to parents and students for all of the money that we've raised so far for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. At this point, we've raised about $700 selling lollipops. We are happy with our earnings, but still have a lot of lollipops left to sell and hope to raise even more funds. If you wish to make a monetary donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, you may do this during the lollipop sale or bring your donation to Ms. Kiser in room 316. Donations will be accepted through Thursday. Thanks again for your support. Sincerely, Christian Evans - Student Body Representative; and Deann Kiser - Faculty Advisor."

Lower Grade Talent Show:  Time for the littles to dust off their dancing shoes or brush up their comedy act. The talent show for grades K-3 will be held on Friday, March 9, at 11:45 a.m. Registration will be on Feb. 22 during lunch. A registration form will be attached to next week's email or it can be found on the lobby table. Stage rehearsal will be held on Monday, March 5, during lunch. Thank you Holly Murdock and Noelle Williams who pull off this event without breaking a sweat!

DEAR Week: One of our favorite weeks of the year is coming up. Drop Everything And Read Week will be held March 12-16. Note the change of dates. The dates were changed to coincide with parent/teacher conferences and the spring book fair. This keeps the reading theme running throughout the week, and the half-day schedule during this week will give the kiddos plenty of time to DROP EVERYTHING AND READ! More info to come! Thank you to Faeth Alder and her committee for the fun they are planning!

Box Tops: We are clipping right along! (Haha, pun intended!) We have reached $136 in collections since January. Ms. Woolf's class is in the lead with Hackman and Eckersley hot on her heels. So keep clipping and submitting those Box Tops. It's "free" money that requires nothing more than clipping the pink tab on products you already purchase. Keep them coming! Thank you, Misty Herbstritt for being "the Box Top Lady"!!

2018-19 School Registration: The dates have been set for the 2018-19 school registration. Kindergarten registration will be held on Friday, April 6, and whole school registration will be held on Friday, April 13. Save the dates! More info to come. 


Thank you!
