PTO Voiceblast 10-19-2014
Hi, this is Allison Rekrut, your PTO President, with your weekly announcements.
We are halfway thru our Luck Draw ticket sales. Keep them coming! All proceeds go towards our computer lab. As if you need a reminder, the top prizes include 2 Xbox Ones, a Nintendo DS, & Universal Studios tickets.
We are also in the process of organizing volunteers for our Jurassic Haunt Fall Festival! If you can give even just an hour of your time, it would be greatly appreciated. A sign-up sheet is in the office, you can contact your room parent, or email Sandy Alejo, our Volunteer Coordinator, directly at email@example.com
Donations are still needed so please give if you can. We have asked Kinder & 1st grade to bring baked goods, 2nd, 3rd & 5th to bring drinks, & 4th to bring cantaloupe-sized pumpkins.
If you would like to decorate your car and be a part of our Trunk-or-Treating event, sign up in the office or let Irma Eskandari know (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
We are also asking for general donations of candy by all grades. Please drop all donations off in the office.
This event is one you won’t forget! The Halloween Experience maze will be bigger and better than ever before. It is truly an “experience” you won’t want to miss! Join us for a night of tricks, treats & tons of fun including pumpkin decorating, games, a photo booth, glow items and Fossil Dust!
Presale tickets will go on sale tomorrow, Monday the 20th. Monday-Thursday, before and after school, you can purchase Jurassic Haunt presale ticket packs including 2 admission wristbands & 20 activity tickets all for only $20. You get 2 free admissions! Get this deal while it lasts!
Our PTO board meeting will be this Wednesday, Oct. 22nd at 6pm. Child care will be provided by the fantastic YMCA.
It’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF time! UNICEF provides food, water, and medicine for needy children all over the world! Your child brought home a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF box to carry on Halloween. We hope you will encourage your child to collect coins on Halloween night to help show that at Van Gogh we care about others. This year, you may start collecting early by setting up a fundraising page online! Go to www.TrickorTreatforUnicef.org for more information, and see the flyer that went home in the Wednesday envelope. Trick-or-Treat!
Save the Date for a parent seminar called Money Talks on Tuesday, October 28th from 8:15am- 9:30am. Overall this is a presentation packed with practical, simple, and easy to execute concepts that will help your children grow up with an appreciation of money, how it works, what it does (and doesn’t do!), how good it feels to have a sense of ownership and responsibility, etc.
Last call for thank you cards for Mitch Englander and his staff. Even just a couple words or even a drawing would make a difference! Please turn them in by Wednesday, Oct. 22nd!
Have a great week!
