Hi! This is Allison Rekrut, your PTO President, with your weekly announcements!
This week is Staff Appreciation Week! Please take the time to let everyone involved in your child’s education know how much you appreciate all they do. We are very lucky to have a school filled with devoted, selfless people who work tirelessly to create a positive and successful experience for our children. A flyer went out listing an item to bring each day for your teacher. This makes it easy to give thanks everyday. Pick and choose or do them all. We are also providing food each day, per grade level, so please be sure to check in with your room parent if you would like to contribute. Monday is 5th grade, Tuesday is 2nd grade, Wednesday is Kinder & 1st grade, Thursday is 4th grade & Friday is 3rd grade. Let’s make this a week to remember for our Van Gogh staff!
If you are planning to buy a gift card for a staff member, please buy one from PTO. We have a variety to choose from & you can stop by the office anytime to pick one up.
Our End-of-Year Carnival is fast approaching on Saturday, May 16th from 1-4pm. We need your help! It takes many people to make this event a success so please reach out to your room parent or look for a sign-up sheet in the office. We also need donations of water, soda & juice. Those can be dropped off in the office anytime between now and May 16th.
Congratulations to our new board members for the 2015-2016 school year. Michael Gantman will be our new President. Carla Valladares will be Vice President of Ways & Means & Christie Leigh will be our new Secretary. I am very excited for the new year as these 3 are extremely positive, enthusiastic, & ready to lead us into a successful school year!
Math Night is May 13th and we are in need of volunteers. This is a chance for you to participate in an academic event for your child. It will be fun-filled and educational all at the same time! I can’t wait to help with a station! You will get a quick training so don’t be afraid to get out there and be a part of a special event! Please sign up in the office!
Have a great week!
