The latest PTO email newsletter just went out, and is reproduced below. If you did not get it, and would like to be on our email list, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is what was sent out:
We should have sent this an hour ago, but we’re still reeling from that time change last weekend. But we’re going to make up for it with a newsletter that is chock-o-block full of the kind of PTO information that you can really sink your teeth into. There’s a lot here. Read in moderation.
PTO MEETING: MONDAY. NOV 9TH!
Our next Pinckney PTO meeting is Monday, Nov. 9th at 5:30pm-6:30pm in the Pinckney Elementary Library. As usual, everyone is invited to attend and participate. Snacks and childcare will be provided. Hope to see you there!
FALL STAFF LUNCHEON: THURS. NOV 12TH
It’s that time again to show our appreciation for all the great staff at Pinckney Elementary with our Fall Staff Luncheon. We are falling back on a favorite theme for some yummy Tex-Mex lunch for our great teachers and staff on Thursday, Nov. 12th
. And here’s a tip: Quesadilla is not Spanish for “What’s the deal?”. Know that going in.
But we need your help! Please feel free to bring dishes that don’t need refrigeration any time. There will be a box in the school office for dropping off non-perishables until Wednesday
evening. If you bring non-perishables on Thursday morning, please bring them directly to the art room. If you have something that needs to be chilled and can’t bring it around 10:00 Thursday
morning, contact Lisa Gotto (785-218-1272
) or Beth Whittaker (785-766-8765
) and we’ll figure something out.
Big, big thanks to Beth and Lisa for organizing this! And thank you to everyone who has already signed up!
PINCKNEY FALL WORK DAY: SUNDAY, NOV. 15TH 1 – 3:30 PM
Please consider coming down on Sunday, Nov. 15th
, from 1pm-3:30pm
where we will spend a little time sprucing up the Pinckney Elementary grounds. We could use all the help we can get and it’s a great opportunity to be outdoors with your kids. A large group of people can go a even bigger amount of work in no time. No gardening expertise necessary. Bring pruning shears, loppers, wheelbarrows and leaf rakes if you can.
GRANDPARENTS & SPECIAL FREINDS LUNCHEON, TUESDAY, NOV. 17TH
One of our favorite annual events is coming up, the Grandparents & Special Friends Luncheon on Tuesday, November 17, but we still have many (at least 100) lunches available, so please, if your child has a grandparent/special friend that they would like to invite to this awesome event, please turn in the RSVP form (the deadline has been extended). If you need a new form, here is the link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx2Q2p49pwBKM0M2U01qRE9yWVk/view?usp=sharing
Thank you Jennifer Roth for organizing, and thanks to everyone who is already signed up to help out!
BOXTOPS! THIS SEMESTER’S RESULTS ARE IN!
Our Box Tops shipment sent last week contained $597.10! Thank you to everyone in the school and greater community who donated Box Tops. The next shipment will be sent in at the end of February so please keep clipping! The holidays are a good time to collect them because Box Tops appear on many groceries we use around that time. Also, asking your family (especially grandparents) and co-workers to collect Box Tops for Pinckney is another good idea! If you are wondering what products feature Box Tops, please check out the website: http://www.boxtops4education.com
