March is a busy month but there are a lot of great things happening to share with you!
1. CHARLOTTE'S WEB ACTIVITY DAY - a flier is being sent home with your child about the exciting fun things we have planned for next Friday! Students and staff are invited to dress up in barnyard or farm attire (plaid shirts, jeans, cowboy hats, etc.) next Friday, March 11th to help celebrate reading the book! A very big thank you to all of the parents for helping read Charlotte's Web with your child at home, to teachers and staff for supporting the book in your classrooms, and to all the PTP volunteers who have helped in so many ways!! The Ida County Courier will be at the school taking pictures next Friday - we are excited about the activities planned during the student's center time at school. Please see the attached fliers for more information.
2. SPRING GARDENS FUNDRAISER - the PTP is sponsoring our last fundraiser of the school year to help raise funds for playground enhancements at our school. The fundraiser begins next week and will run thru Tuesday, March 22nd. Packets will be going home with students next Monday or Tuesday. Most of the items in the catalog are seed packets geared toward the outdoors - flowers, garden items, etc. - perfect for the warm weather on the horizon! A fun incentive for the kids: the grade with the most items sold will earn a Subway Party Sub lunch OUTSIDE sponsored by our fundraising rep! The KEY class will partner with the preschool classes for this incentive. The fundraiser pick-up date will be in the school gym on Friday, April 22nd between 3-6pm... just in time for planting season!
3. SPRING CONFERENCE MEALS - thank you to all of the PTP volunteers who have signed up to bring a food item or donate $$ towards the Subway Party Subs for our hard working teachers. We do need 1-2 volunteers to bring either a salad or appetizer on Tuesday, March 22nd if you are interested. I will be sending out the finalized meal list next week and will also send out a reminder closer to the conference dates to the volunteers who have signed up.
4. MARCH PTP BULLETIN BOARD - our tree has grown a lot since last month - WOW!! Thank you to everyone for your support, donations, and time - we appreciate all of your help!!
If anyone has any questions please let me know. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and GO FALCONS!
