Happy New Year!
FUN FAIR COMMITTEE: Fun Fair is Ivy Hill’s biggest event of the year and we need YOU to make it successful. It takes 150+ volunteers to make it happen. Shifts are short and easy! We are looking for Moms, Dads and responsible high school students to fill the many slots that we have. (This is a great opportunity for teens needing service hours!) Feel free to sign up for multiple slots if you are interested!
Did you pledge to help Ivy Hill with three hours of service this year? Here is a great opportunity to help make our biggest event a huge success!
for Fun Fair sign up and let us know where we can count on you to help! This link will also be available on the Ivy Hill Elementary PTA Facebook page!

COMMUNITY & FAMILY INVOLVEMENT:
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ivy Hill PTA has partnered with One Warm Coat® to sponsor a COAT DRIVE
so we can all “BECOME A WARMTH WARRIOR!”
For the nearly 15% of Americans living in poverty, a warm winter coat is a budget “extra.” Listen to their stories and hear why they need our support! http://www.onewarmcoat.org/theneed/
Our Ivy Hill Coat Drive
will begin January 11th and end January 29th
. Bins will be placed in the school and we’re also looking to be at morning drop-off to collect. The greatest need is for kids/teenager winter coats new or gently used (however, if you have other coats, they will accept). If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Bank (201-400-0236) or Julie Soderna (773-230-1163). Thank you and let’s warm our community…one coat at a time!
