PTO Voiceblast 08-25-2014
Hello, this is Allison Rekrut, your PTO President with your weekly announcements.
Our pledge drive is off to a great start! We’ve raised OVER $5000 in less than 3 days! How much can we raise before the next voiceblast?! Go to www.friendsofvangogh.com this week and make your donation via PayPal or drop of your donation form in the office. A donation of $300 will get you a free t-shirt for your child to wear on Friday spirit day. Donate $500 and you get a t-shirt plus the following: family admission to Fall Festival, 20 tickets to the Luck Drawing, family admission to Valentine Rock Dance, & 40 tickets to our Spring Carnival.. That’s more than an $80 value!
Our 1st Dine-Out night is this Tuesday, August 26th, at Chuck E Cheese from 12-9pm. Let’s celebrate the completion of 2 weeks back to school! We all deserve a little reward!
If you were selected as a room parent, our Room Parent Informational Meeting is this Wednesday, August 27th at 6pm in the auditorium. It is extremely important that you attend this meeting. We want to be sure you all have everything you need to have a successful year.
Picture Day is this Thursday, August 28th.
Remember, there is no school on Friday, August 29th for Admissions Day and Monday, September 1st in commemoration of Labor Day.
Please visit escrip and register any and all of your loyalty cards, credit cards and debit cards and Van Gogh will get a percentage of all of your purchases throughout the year with no work on your part. Other schools make tens of thousands of dollars this way. It is safe and secure. This includes Target, Ralphs, Vons and so many more.
If you collected Box Tops or Labels for Education over the summer, please turn them in by Thursday, August 28th. Put them in a baggie labeled with your child’s name & classroom. The next collection form will go out in the next Wednesday envelope. We can earn school supplies as well as money for our school.
Back to School night was amazing as usual. It’s at events such as these, that I am reminded of the passion and dedication of not only our teachers & Ms. Merloni, but of the Van Gogh parents as well. It gives me goosebumps!
Our 1st PTO meeting was also a huge success! Thanks to all who attended and especially to the YMCA for free childcare! I predict this to be an incredible year for Van Gogh!
Mark your calendars! Monday, September 15th, we will be kicking off the Spelling Challenge. Our very own Councilmember, Mitch Englander, will be making a guest appearance at our Monday morning assembly to help support this fantastic event. Let’s show him our Van Gogh spirit by having the greatest parent turn-out ever.
Have a great week!
