Get Ready, Get Set and Join Us!

We are excited for Back To School Night, Monday, Aug. 27 at 6 p.m. Please take this opportunity to meet your teachers and find ways you can help out. Official needs list vary by teacher, but here are a few good ideas to stock up on and donate if you can.

*Glue Sticks
*Colored Pencils
*Disinfecting Wipes (like Clorox Wipes)
*Expo Dry Erase markers
*Facial Tissue
*Indoor games or puzzles for inside days

Also we have a few new opportunities for you to consider.

*Chinese Liaison-we need a parent with a child in the Chinese Immersion program to work with the PTO and help us know what's going on in the class, where help is needed and how we can lend a hand.

* Math Club- several parents have asked for this opportunity for the lower grades. We are willing to offer the program, but we need a parent to head up the group in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades or we won't be able to bring the programs school wide. There are some materials available and knowledgeable volunteers in the upper grades to help volunteers in the lower grades.

*Dads and Donuts- we would really like to offer this to all students. This program happens four times a year. We need someone in charge of picking up donuts and doing flyers to remind kids and parents to come; we will also need volunteers to just serve donuts. This is a great way to have parents and kids spend time together--you don't have to be a Dad to bring your child, any adult is welcome to bring students.

*  Room Mom and Class room help sign up sheets will be available in your teacher's classroom on Back to School Night. Look for the light purple paper.

*Field Day Coordinator- to help plan the year end field day in May for all grades.

*Country Fair- We need lots of help at this event: Food Chair, Publicity, Donations, and people to help set up, clean up and run games. We will be more successful with your help. This event will be May 10, 2013.

We need everyone's talents and time. Don't forget our Six for Southland Challenge where each family is asked to give 6 hours of service during the year to our school. We have great teachers, kids and parents. Together we can make a difference!
