PTA News and Notes – May 2022

Fundraiser = Mission Accomplished!

  • First off, we’d like to thank everyone who donated and made our fundraiser a huge success! We exceeded our goal and are excited that the kids will be able to enjoy the rewards that were earned.
  • We’d like to thank Trapnell Orthodontics for sponsoring the helicopter ping pong ball drop and Harward Farms for lending us a pig for Mrs. Thomas to smooch. Also, the awesome folks at Lollipuff are donating cotton candy to the top earning class from each grade (they did this for our fundraiser last year, too)! We couldn’t pull this off without our awesome business partners in the community. Thank you also to Alisa Liston for helping organize all of this.

 

  • Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up next week and Jessica Stevenson has a week full of fun things planned to recognize our amazing teachers for all that they do for our kids. Once again, we’d like to thank you all for your generosity in signing up to donate money and items in order to make this week a huge success!

 

  • Our final PTA meeting of the year is coming up on Thursday May 19th at 9:30 am. Please join us!

 

  • Thanks in advance to Sara Harward and Audra Crandall for organizing our Field Day again this year. They always do such an awesome job!

 

  • We’d like to thank all of you that have given generously of your time throughout the year. The PTA truly appreciates you!

PTA News and Notes – April 2022

  • Get ready for this year’s PTA fundraiser! It will run from April 25-29. We are asking for cash donations. Big Prizes and activities will be awarded if we hit our goal of $8,000. Prizes include a helicopter ping pong ball drop, Mrs. Thomas and Mr. “Nachos” will kiss a pig and cotton candy for the top donating class in each grade! Keep an eye out for more information in a couple of weeks.

  • DADS we need you! We are putting together a Dads Talent Assembly to take place in May (exact date TBD). If you have a talent you want to perform that would be great! It can also be as simple as doing a lip sync, telling dad jokes, or gathering a group of dads to do a skit. Email [email protected] if you are interested. Please join us!

  • We’d like to thank Natalie Christensen for her effort in organizing the three SEP dinners throughout the year. The teachers really appreciated these delicious meals!
