PTA Happenings June 4, 2021 – June 11, 2021

The end of the school year is finally here, I am sure we will all let out a big cheer. Enjoy your summer, time to kick back and relax, have fun in the sun, and remember, we are not done. See you all next fall, fundraising, activities, and all.

PTA COMMITTEE MEMBERS NEEDED: Interested in heading a PTA committee next year?  Please click here

PTA COMMITTEE BINDERS: If you have a PTA Committee Binder, please contact Katie Taranda at ktaranda@gmail.com

KIDS PANDEMIC COMMITTEE: A special end-of-year treat, brought to you by the Kids Pandemic Relief Committee, will be coming soon!

MRS. LIKES SURPRISE CELEBRATION: A time has been set for Mrs. Likes recognition, which will be from 2:30 – 3:00 on Wednesday, June 9th.  Parents and families can gather outside by the side door #13 in the grassy area along Burke.  We are hoping people can start gathering around 2:15, so when Mrs. Likes walks out with her current class, she will be surprised!  We are planning on having her former students who are in person to be outside as well to surprise her.

Some of the room moms are collecting handwritten letters of gratitude and congratulations from students and parents, which will be presented to Mrs. Likes at the celebration. If you would like to include something, please turn it into the office by Monday, June 7. Please contact Jen Sylvia at 773-824-6351 for more information.

YEAR END THANKS: As we come to year end, Ivy Hill PTA wants to thank all of our wonderful volunteers who found a way to be extra creative this year.  We also want to thank our 5th grade families who will be leaving our Ivy community and wish them well. We have a special gift for our 5th grade chairs to be delivered next week. Thank you to the Ivy staff and teachers for your hard work, creativity and flexibility this year. We appreciate it all. To the teachers leaving us this year. Thank you for your years at Ivy. You will be greatly missed!  Have a great summer and see you next year.
