Hi! This is Allison Rekrut, your PTO President, with your weekly announcements!
The volunteer brunch, which took place on April 10th, was exceptional! We thank the committee of teachers and staff who work tirelessly to be sure we volunteers are acknowledged and feel appreciated. The Frost band, the variety of foods and beverages, but most of all, the company are what I will hold dear!
Everyone should have received their Square One Art Fundraiser items last week. What a huge success that was…we raised over $2000 just by buying our children’s art! Love it!
Holiday DVD’s are now available. We will be distributing them next week. This was a huge undertaking and done strictly by volunteers. We thank all those involved in making an amazing keepsake for Van Gogh families.
This week is our last General PTO meeting of the school year. It is also important because it is when we elect ½ a new board, including President, Secretary, & VP of Ways & Means. The candidates’ statements are posted at the front of the school. . Please attend this meeting if you would like to be a part of the voting process. We are still looking for someone or two for Ways & Means so contact me if you are interested.
Our next Dine-Out night is Tuesday, April 28th at Chipotle. You will need to show them the flyer for Van Gogh to receive credit. We are also selling Chipotle gift cards in the office the week of the 27th. If you plan to visit Chipotle on that day, using the gift card will increase the money back for Van Gogh!
Teacher Appreciation Week is right around the corner…May 4th-8th. You should be receiving guidelines, suggestions, and ideas from your room parent very soon. This is a chance for you and your child to give thanks to everyone involved in your child’s education. It can be as small or as big as you see fit. Everyone likes a little pat on the back once in a while.
Gift cards are available for a variety of places, including Starbucks, Target, Subway, and so many more!. If you are going to buy a gift card, please buy from Van Gogh. We receive a percentage of each card sold. As I said, we will be selling gift cards the week of April 27th.
Save the Date- Our carnival has been moved to Saturday, May 16th from 1-4pm. We are in need of many volunteers to make this event a success. Please sign up in the office.
Have fantastic week!
