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
Remember that the Science Fair is this evening in the East Hieghts gym from 6-7pm!

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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org! Thank you!
This Saturday, from 6-7:30pm at East Heights, our Pinckney Elementary community is gathering for our annual Back To School Potluck. Every year everyone is really great about bringing a fantastic dish to share, so please do (remember to mark your dishes/utensils with name/phone #).
Meg Lyles is putting a lot of hard work into organizing this event and she could use a little help. Please visit this event’s Sign Up Genius at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0d4fadac2da7f49-back1 and see if you can’t pitch in a little to help make this event another success. Remember that our Pinckney PTO is “parent-powered” and every event we put on for the benefit our ourselves, our children and our staff needs all of us working together whenver we can. We do appreciate your help!
We have a few events on our calendar that are still looking for someone to step up and organize. I know I’ve been approached by many people, particularly those new to Pinckney, asking for ways they can become involved more with our school community. Taking on one of these events is a GREAT way to get involved in your child’s school, and we provide plenty of support.
Currently, we are looking for someone to organize both the Fall and Spring Staff Luncheon. Fall Staff Luncheon, is Thurs. Nov. 10th and Spring Staff Luncheon is Thurs. Feb. 23rd. Please contact us at email@example.com if you would like to help out! Thanks!
RED CARPET WELCOME, FRIDAY, AUGUST 12th, 7:30am
“We hope your summer has been full of memories. It is hard to believe that it is already August and time to welcome our teachers back to school with a Red Carpet Welcome on August 12 at 7:30 am. Please help us to fill the sidewalk leading to the North entrance of Free State HS with a a crowd of students and parents and as many cheers as possible by letting your members know about the event and sharing our FaceBook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/169928723408259/
Also, this year we will greet our teachers with messages from our parents sharing their hopes and dreams for their child for the school year, or simply thanking them for making a difference in the lives of our children. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please ask your parents to write a message that we can share with our teachers and staff at this link: https://docs.google.com/a/greenbush.org/forms/d/1gvti-DNEc24Zsy93UfggvsmYxMAWCMkswAklE16B51M/edit
We are expecting to greet over 1,800 (!) people on August 12 so we ask that everyone park at either Theatre Lawrence, Sprouts, or Walmart rather than in the Free State parking lot.
Many thanks and we look forward to seeing you on August 12!
PINCKNEY KINDERGARTEN GET-TOGETHER, SATURDAY, AUGUST 13TH!
Got a rising kindergartener this year? Know someone who does? We are planning an informal get together for this year’s kindergarten class. Please join us for Popsicles and play time on Saturday, August 13th from 10-12 at East Heights. Drop in anytime- its a great chance to meet other families and let the kids get a lay of the land (or at least the playground).
If you have any questions related to either of the events above, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
