You can order baseball style shirts once again! Thanks going out to the Lees family for getting this ready to go!
Don’t forget, this year’s annual Halloween Parade from Pinckney to Lawrence Memorial Hospital is Thurs., Oct 31, at 2:00PM. Please check your child’s backpack for guidelines on costumes. Refreshments following the parade will be provided by PTO at the Clinton Park pavilion.
Reminder: Tonight is Movie Night!! Bring the whole family to the Pinckney theater to see the movie UP. (okay, it’s the gym, but we’re turning it into a theater!) PTO will be selling hot dogs and popcorn and the 5th graders will be selling pizza, soda and candy. Bring along your blankets and pillows to get cozy. This is a family event, so please attend this event with your child or have them bring along another adult.
This Friday, September 6th is the classroom open house and PTO Potluck!
Come from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m to see your child’s classroom and meet their teacher, then stay for the PTO Potluck!
For the potluck, please bring a dish to share! You can drop off your dish before you go into the classrooms if you’d like. At the potluck, you can meet your PTO board as well as other parents, find out about upcoming events and sign up to help out with anything that interests you.
See you there!!

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!
