As this school year comes to an end we would like to give one last thank you to the all of our parent volunteers who donated their time and money to make all of our activities successful. Programs like Reflections, Red/White Ribbon Week, Green Ribbon Week, Walk to School Day, Spelling Bee, SEP Conference dinners for the teachers, and Teacher Appreciation Week wouldn’t happen without your help. Funds from the fundraiser also go back to the school to help teachers buy supplies for their classrooms and to help the administration purchase other important equipment/supplies. Thank you for your support!
Most recently our parent volunteers helped pull off a successful Field and Water day at the park. We would like to give a big thank you to Zebra Cleaning for donating the Creamies that were distributed during the event to help cool off the kids. Thanks again to Audra Crandall and Sara Harward for organizing the event.
Looking for something to keep your kids busy this summer? Have them get a head start on their reflections projects! The theme for next year is, “Show Your Voice.” They can enter in the categories of Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, 2D Visual Arts, and 3D Visual Arts (they can have entries in as many categories as they would like). Encourage your kids to share their talents!
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!
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!
At our PTA meeting in March Alisa Liston was voted in as President Elect and Emily Finlinson as secretary. We are thankful for their willingness to serve.
Thank you to Carrie Hollingshauss for helping with the school spelling bee. She did a fantastic job lining up the judges and arranging the awards!
Thanks to Amber Egbert and Jana Nance for organizing a parent run, PTA supported “Love Week” and a huge thank you to each of you for who donated money or treats to show love to the teachers and staff at the school. It was a great week!
