PTA Happenings : Dec. 5 – 11, 2014

HOLIDAY GIFT SHOP is this Saturday, December 6th from 9:00-11:30 families are invited to visit the school and purchase fabulous low-cost items. We are also welcoming crafters and vendors who will offer something unique for everyone.   Children can find gifts for everyone in the family and leave with them gift wrapped. Donuts and Coffee can be purchased and hot cocoa is always complimentary. Be sure not to miss this very special IH tradition. If you are interested in volunteering for the Holiday Gift Shop, contact Emily Morrison emmorrison@sbcglobal.net or check out our volunteer sign up page at www.signupgenius.com/go/8050F49ACAB22A31-20141  We hope to see you there!

REMINDER: Cash only for Holiday gift shop purchases. Thank You!!

MARKET DAY:  December is here and it’s Holiday Baking time.  Why not make it easier on yourself and buy cookie dough from Market Day?  The more you buy, the more the school earns! AND the more you save!  Buy 2, Save $2.  Buy 3, Save $5.  Lots of other Holiday favorites available.  With a $40 purchase* you get a FREE pound of broccoli florets. Internet orders are due Monday December 8th by 11pm.  Pick up date will be on  Thursday December 11th.

BOX TOPS: Lots of holiday cooking usually means wonderful treats and lots of Box Tops! If you have collected a few Box Tops, turn them in for our December raffle! On Dec. 17th one lucky winner will get a pottery painting package! The package includes – 2 pieces to paint and free paint on your own pottery, studio fees for up to 16 people to create.  To be used for a drop in creation or reserved party.  Turn in those Tops for a chance to win this fun prize!  Good Luck!

In November, the PTA sponsored a Hat & Mitten Drive for  JOURNEYS: The Road Home.  Ivy Hill families were so generous in gathering..
  • 10 coats
  • 34 hats
  • 40 gloves
  • and 12 additional winter items

Thanks to all who ordered MANNA GIFT CARDS!  If you didn’t get a chance to place your order, you have one more chance! We will be at Holiday Gift Shop TOMORROW collecting final orders.  Stock up on gifts for family, friends, and teachers for easy holiday shopping — while also supporting the PTA.  Here are links to the Letter  and the Order Form .  We will also have hard copies of the forms for you to fill out at Holiday Gift Shop.  All orders are due by the close of Holiday Gift Shop tomorrow.  Any questions, please contact Carla Kim, cmk17@sbcgobal.net or Lynn Feder, lynnfeder@hotmail.com.

The ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS COMMITTEE will be holding two drives in December/early January.  One is our annual recycling of holiday lights drive.  So if you have any old and/or non-working holiday lights, please drop them off in the designated boxes in the Commons area starting December 1st. Secondly, we are having a used board games collection.  We are requesting any gently used board games with all pieces included. These board games will be given to our teachers that are in need of some new board games, especially for indoor recess.  Please leave these donations in the marked box in the Commons area, too.  Both drives will be taking place December 1st –January 9th. If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Derochowski (michelledycus@gmail.com) or Angela Zulaski  (Ajz95331@yahoo.com

LUNCHTIME READERS will be starting soon. More information and permission slips will be coming home soon via backpack mail. The permission slips will need to be turned in by Dec. 19th.   For the books to choose from click 3rd grade reading list and 4th grade reading list.
