Come support your local Pinckney Panther artists! Evening of the Arts is Thursday, April 18th starting at 6PM!
It’s that time of year!
Just think of a three hundred family garage sale, without the haggling over prices. Clothes, household items, toys, appliances, tools, furniture, and more!
Saturday, February 9th
8 a.m.-3 p.m.
Pinckney School Gym – 6th and Mississippi
The Chili Feed and Used Book Fair is Thursday, January 24th. If you’d like to participate in the contest, please have your chili at the school and ready to judge at 5:30. We will begin eating at 6.
On the other end of the gym we will be selling used books for 5o cents each. You can start bringing in books now and leave them in the PTO corner. Books are being taken out of the Really BIG Sale items to go into the Used Book Fair. Leftover books will go to the Really BIG Sale.
Hi Pinckney Panthers,
If you are doing some holiday shopping online, and I know you are, you should start here and earn some eBoxtops for Pinckney while you shop:
And don’t forget this. Those of you that say, “But I don’t buy any of those products with Boxtops labels on them,” have no excuse to not earn eBoxtops by watching a cute little video or answering a few questions about the things you DO buy. Our kids benefit directly from your efforts; every cent we earn is used in Pinckney’s classrooms.
Lastly, if you need another reason to bust out your scissors and scour your pantry for Boxtops, consider this: Eudora has collected almost $3500.00 in Boxtops this year. We have a measly $621.00. GET ON IT, Pinckney. Don’t let those little 10-cent scraps of paper go to the recycling center or landfill—bring them in and stuff them in the tall skinny blue box. You don’t need a collection sheet or anything fancy to gather them in or on. Heck, you can even stuff in the whole cereal box if it is too much trouble to pull off the lid or trim the boxtop. Spread the word to your family and friends!

This Wednesday at 5:30 in the school library is the last PTO meeting of 2012. Meetings are open to all. We will be discussing upcoming events (such as Pancake Flip on 1/5/13 and Really Big Sale on 2/9/13) and a year-end review with thoughts about the semester to follow. If you have thoughts or ideas you would like to share, please let me know so I can include you on the agenda – or I can share them on your behalf. Thank you! – Jen Roth
Stop by the gym before or after your child’s Parent-Teacher Conferences November 7, 3:30-6:30 and November 8, 8:00-6:30 in the gymnasium to purchase some books.
