ABC/25 COMMITTEE Attention all students of District 25!  It’s time to get those creative juices flowing for this year’s Just Move It! T-shirt and Race Poster Design Challenge. Everyone will have the opportunity to submit their original drawing for the t-shirt and official race poster design.  Just think, over 1000 people will wear YOUR design!  Designs are due by November 18, 2016.   PDF 2017 t-shirt guidelines and  Word 2017 t-shirt guidelines forms can be downloaded here.

EVERYBODY COUNTS COMMITTEE:  Everybody Counts Week is coming Nov 14-18!!   Everybody Counts is a program designed to teach children about various disabilities and how children with these challenges cope with them.  The goal is understanding; to help everyone look for the person behind the disability and to create a climate in which we all feel at ease with our differences.  Each presentation will provide the children with an opportunity to experience what it would be like to cope with a disability.  Would you like the opportunity to lead your child’s class in this experience?  A script will be provided and there are typically 4-5 volunteers who share each presentation.  We are in need of volunteers for Kindergarten – Eisenhuth, 3rd Grade Schlickman/Taylor/Knutson class.  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.  Fifth grade after school special event permission forms have gone home, please remember to sign and return.

BOX TOPS/SHOPAROO COMMITTEE:  The November raffle prize for Box Tops is a School of Rock gift certificate (max value $300).  Feel free to ask your family and friends to save their Box Tops for you.  It’s an easy way to give your Ivy Hill student more chances to win!  Shoparoo prizes are a $15 and a $10 gift card to Olive Garden.   Thank you and good luck!

HOLIDAY GIFT SHOP:   Time is fast approaching!  Crafters don’t miss out on your opportunity  to request a table to sell your crafts.  You have time over Thanksgiving break to work on your inventory. You have until November 28th to turn them in.  Please contact Kelly Nix kelly.nix630@gmail.com with any questions.   Thank you!  Don’t forget to reserve your tables. The vendor agreements are ready to send, just contact Kelly Nix at  kelly.nix630@gmail.com.  $25 adult tables $10 for students. Deadline is Nov 28.

I-FIVES go to:  Boxtops/Shoparoo Committee, Rekha Muruvinakombe, Laura Walscheid, and Sherry Geer for counting and collecting labels and giving away great prizes while earning our school extra cash!
