Weekly PTO Newsletter: 3/11
Happy Spring Break!
What a week it has been! From our unbelievably amazing Glitter Ball which raised a record-breaking $92,000 dollars, to Read-A-Thon which transformed our library to a real-life Narnia (be sure to check out our Instagram page for a post about it!), to Math Night which had kids reveling in fun math games – it was quite a week! We send our heart-felt thanks to the many volunteers who have made all of these things possible, none of which could have happened without the army of moms and dads who rolled up their sleeves and helped.
We hope you enjoy Spring Break next week and look forward to much more to come as the final weeks of this school year begin!
Grade Parties, Parent Socials Still Available Through Auction!
If you missed out on the Glitter Ball auction, forgot to sign your student up for a grade-level party or wish you’d snagged a souvenir cup, there’s still time! The auction is back open, but only until this Sunday, March 13, at 9 p.m. A few remaining auction items (think fitness classes, summer camp and sports registrations, Zoom whitening treatments, parent parties and more!) can be purchased or bid on here. Don’t miss out on your FINAL chance to scoop up some great deals and fun experiences for you and your child!
Also, if you still need to retrieve your winnings from Glitter Ball, email email@example.com to coordinate pickup. (Please note: If you won a Parent Party, Grade-Level Party, PPE Experience or Teacher Outing, you do not need to pick anything up. Watch for an email regarding those events/items.)
