  • Parent Association Meeting Brief (January)

    The Parent Association had another great meeting on January 12th.  Here are some of the highlights:

    ·         School safety agent Mr. Elmore did a presentation on the procedures in place to keep our children safe while at school.

    ·         We have a number of PA sponsored fundraisers and events coming up including a parent-child dance and Dining to Donate at Applebees.  Look out for communications that will be sent home regarding these activities.  We are aiming to host another school carnival for the children.  Raising funds is critical to making that happen.

    ·         Show your child one more way that you love them. Purchase a $5 candy bag that will be delivered to your child’s classroom on Valentine’s Day.  Order details will be sent home very soon.

    ·         The spring submission deadline for Box Tops is March 1st.  Please send in any Box Tops you have collected on or before February 20th.  Remember, the more Box Tops we submit, the more money we earn for the school.

    ·         If you haven’t done so, please pay your PA dues.  It’s only $10 and all funds go towards supporting our school and our children.  Dues can be given to Ms. Bolton, the PA Treasurer, or Mr. Leader.

    The success of the Parent Association depends on having input, support and participation from as many parents as possible.  So even if you cannot attend the PA meetings in person, feel free to connect with the PA board via email to share your feedback at pa@pgms566.org.  Contact us with any questions, comments or if you would like to volunteer for upcoming events.

    Finally, congratulations go out to Ms. Butler for winning this month’s prize – a very lovely candle and candle holder gift set provided by PA member Ms. Asencio.  Thanks Ms. Asencio!

     

    Hope to see you at the next PA meeting on Thursday, February 9th at 6:30pm.

  • Parent Association Meeting Brief (December)

    The hot topic at this month’s PA meeting was fundraising.  The parents in attendance discussed some wonderful ideas to raise funds to benefit our children and our school.  From selling hot dogs (which was successfully done at the 12/3 Step Show hosted at the school) and candy to school dances, there will be a number of activities coming up that both parents and kids will be able to enjoy.  Look out for more details on that to come soon.  We will be reaching out to everyone to volunteer if possible.

    One fundraiser in which ALL parents can easily participate is the collection of Box Tops.  The school receives 10 cents for every Box Top submitted, so please be sure to watch out for them on the products you purchase.  When you find one, clip it and save it.  Just make sure the expiration date is showing.  We don’t get credit for missing dates or expired Box Tops.  We will do the first submission to Box Tops 4 Education on February 24th, so collect away and send in as many as you can before February 17th. 

    Finally, let’s say congratulations to Ms. Winston for winning this month’s prize giveaway – a $25 gift card to Toys R Us!  There will be a new prize each month, but you have to be in the room to have a chance to win.  So be sure to join us at the next parent association meeting on Thursday, January 12th @ 6:30pm.
