PTA Happenings – Nov. 4 – Nov. 10, 2016

COMMUNITY AND FAMILY INVOLVEMENT COMMITTEE:  Did you know that nearly 15% of Americans are living in poverty and struggling to provide warm coats for themselves and their families? This year the Ivy Hill PTA is teaming up with One Warm Coat to hold a coat, hat, and mitten drive, and we need your help!   Donate coats to the PTA coat, hat and mitten drive! One Warm Coat has been holding coat drives across the country for more than 20 years.  During the week of November 7-11, stop by the Ivy Hill Commons to drop off gently worn coats, hats, and mittens.  Everything collected will be donated locally to our neighbors in need.  Help spread the warmth!!!  See attached One Warm Coat

EVERYBODY COUNTS COMMITTEE:   Everybody Counts week is coming Nov 14-18 and in need of volunteers.  Please contact Kristina Dreyer (kristinadreyer@yahoo.com) or click on the following link to be added to the volunteer list:  https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/20f0b49acac2faafc1-everybody

Also, Everybody Counts is in need of clean, empty gallon milk jugs. Please drop these off in the office if you have one.
