FUNDRAISING: Thank you so much to the families who have participated in our PTA fall fundraising! We are very happy to announce that participation in the Stress Free Fundraiser has helped us cover our losses from the cancellation of Market Day this year! If you haven’t participated in the Stress Free Fundraiser, it is not too late. We are still accepting contributions! If you lost the sheet, no worries! Extra flyers are available in the PTA nook just inside the front door at school. Is it too stressful to try to get another flyer from the school?!? You can just send in a check or cash through backpack mail without the flyer. Be sure to write PTA fundraiser, your child’s name, and their teacher on the envelope. And don’t forget, this year in addition to your monetary donation, we are also asking parents to donate 3 hours of your time as a volunteer for one of our many fantastic PTA activities! Thank you to everyone for giving 3 and $30! If you have any questions, contact Suzanne Krause at firstname.lastname@example.org or Emily Morrison at email@example.com.
