PTO Wants Help!
Hello Comrades – We are super excited
to start really working to improve our student’s school spirit
and sense of community! We’ve already started planning events
to get everyone involved. We feel the PTO can play a big role in
helping our kids enjoy school! We’re asking you to help in
any aspect you feel comfortable. Our first event is next week –
Movie and Popcorn after school. If you feel energetic, we are asking
for bake-sale type items. The popcorn has already been provided
and all the drinks have been donated! All we need are baked goodies
(or store bought)! The movie (Hop) is next Thursday, March 29 from
2:30–5. If you can stay we would be more than happy to have
the extra help. If you can make it to a PTO meeting that would also
be great. Ideas, suggestions and help are always needed. Thanks
in advance for your help!
Ideas for the future:
Ice Cream Social
Track & Field Day
Monthly Lunch Snacks
Community Outreach Projects
Corn Hole Tournaments
