PTO Meeting, Monday, May 8th 5:30!

Hey, the last Pinckney PTO Meeting of the 2016-2017 school year is this evening at 5:30pm at East Heights in Room 28. This is the meeting where we establish the PTO Board for 2017-2018. If you’ve been interested in getting more involved in your neighborhood school, next year, with our arrival at the newly renovated school, is a prime opportunity to do so. We encourage anyone interested to attend tonight, especially parents/guardians of incoming Kindergarteners!

(If you are interested in being on the board but cannot make the meeting or if you have any other questions, please email me at pantherparents@gmail.com)

Street Dance Help Needed!

Hey all! So our last (and some say best) PTO event of the year is in a few weeks- the Pinckney Street Dance – on Saturday, May 6th, from 5:30-7:30pm at East Heights. As usual, we need Pinckney Parent/Guardian Power to make these events go. I just signed up for a slot to help out and, if you have not already, I would ask that you consider helping as well! Thanks in advance! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d49adad28a5ff2-street2

PTO MEETING IS MONDAY
———————————

Really Big Sale Sat. Feb 18th

We’ll tell you a secret. In order to commemorate our new start at our revitalized school building next year, your Pinckney PTO is planning on providing a free “Back To The Future” (get it?) themed t-shirt to EVERY Pinckney student. The cost to do this is $1,000+. PTO earns ALL of our funding primarily through 2 events: running parking at the KU Rowing Regatta (Oct.) and our Really Big Sale (March.). We were lucky enough to get outside volunteers for parking, meaning we didn’t have to have Pinckney parent volunteers. But we don’t have outside volunteers for The Really Big Sale. This one is on us, so we need your help. Just 2 hours of your time on either Friday or Saturday. We’ve ONLY got 7 days left and lots of open slots. Thanks in advance!
Donations: Also, if you or anyone you kno w have items you would like to donate to the sale, here are the remaining drop-off times. The storage containers are behind the school at 1430 Haskell this year.
o Feb. 15th 5-6pm
o Feb. 16th 7-8pm
o Feb. 17th ALL DAY

Oct. PTO Meeting

PTO Meeting Tonight (Monday, Oct. 10th., 5:30pm) at East Heights (in the Media Center in the mobile units behind the school). Childcare and snacks provided. Hope to see you there!

Fall Faculty/Staff Luncheon Coordinator

Parents! I wonder if anyone could help us out, please. We need someone to organize the Faculty/Staff Fall Luncheon on Thursday, Nov. 10th. You will have loads of help and access to the braintrust of someone who has organized it previously, but we just need one awesome person to take the helm of this important (and extremely popular) PTO event. Please let me know in the comments below or, alternatively, you can email me at pantherparents@gmail.com! Thank you!
