PTA Calendar

MOVIE NIGHT: for grades 3-5 is October 21st at 6:30 pm.  We will be showing either “Inside Out” or “Zootopia”.  Kids will vote for their choice on the permission slip.  We will let everyone know the movie selected prior to Movie Night.  Doors will open at 6:30 PM and the movie will start promptly at 6:45 PM.
Pickup time will be finalized once the movie has been selected.  Kids are encouraged to wear their pajamas and bring a sleeping bag, pillow and their favorite stuffed animal to enjoy the movie.  Fall Movie Night Permission Slips will be sent home very soon by backpack mail.  Please return your signed permission-slip-2016-fall-movie-night-3 and money by Friday Oct. 15th.  Questions?  Contact Becky Brown (bbecky4936@gmail.com) or Tajalli Horvat (tajalli@gmail.com)

GARDEN COMMITTEE:  On behalf of the Garden Committee, thank you to everyone who helped with the deliciously successful Harvest Day!  A special thank you to Vice Principal Natalie Jiminez, Coletta Hines-Newell, Director of Food Services, and all the volunteers who made this special event possible.

Get your pictures in the yearbook! The Yearbook Staff invites you to submit photos for the yearbook. If you’ve got great photos of school events, please submit them.  Our photographers can’t be everywhere. Help us get as many photos as possible to create a terrific book everyone will want to have.  We prefer small group photos and all the kids in the photo need to attend Ivy Hill.

Here is how you can submit photos online:
• Go to: https://images.memoryebooks.com/login
• If it does not automatically log you into the site, enter username: 406033618
• Browse to select the photo(s) you wish to upload.
• Enter information about the photo and provide contact information in case the staff needs additional information.
• Click “Save Details”.

If you have any questions, please contact:  Nicole Campbell (Nicole.Campbell496@gmail.com), Amy Walters (Josh2amy@yahoo.com) orRenee Bennett-Smith (Reneebennettsmith@yahoo.com)

THANK YOU to everyone who has already donated to our Stress Free Fundraiser!!!  If you have not done so already, no worries! We are still accepting donations.  You should have received the flyer through back pack mail already, but if yours didn’t make it home to you, feel free to either pick up a flyer from the cubby in the school foyer, or send it in an envelope with no flyer.  If you send it without a flyer, please make sure to clearly mark the envelope with your child’s name and label it Stress Free Fundraiser. This year, it is the only fall fundraiser we are doing, so please consider participating!  Like last year, we are striving for each family to donate 3 hours of your time and $30 towards our fundraising efforts.  Our PTA sponsors many great activities throughout the year and we can’t do it without your time and money!  Remember all donations towards our Stress Free Fundraiser are tax deductible, and 100% of the money you donate will go towards the great activities sponsored by our PTA!  If you have any questions, please contact Suzanne Krause at svkrause@hotmail.com.

BOX TOPS/SHOPAROO COMMITTEE:  Fall is here and that means pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters, and colorful leaves but it also means that the kids are going to start getting sick!  Ugh!  Start stocking up on Lysol Disinfecting Wipes and Lysol Disinfecting Sprays to ensure that you are not next!  Did you know that Box Tops are on these products?  By sending in even one or two of these labels you can really make a difference for our school. If you don’t purchase name brand products you can always continue to help our school by using Shoparoo.  Visit www.shoparoo.com for more information about this convenient app.  

ABC/25: Help your school Earn $2,500 – Become a member of ABC/25 Foundation! New this year –>Yankee Candle Fundraiser starts September 1st. Proceeds from membership and fundraisers benefit Foundation teacher grant programs.
The ABC/25 Foundation is an independent non-profit volunteer organization that raises funds for innovative learning initiatives that are not otherwise supported by District funds. Learn more at www.abc25.org.
