Teachers Need You

Are you looking for a new way to help your teacher?  We asked teachers how we could help and here are a few new ideas:
Tally Reading Minutes: Ask your teacher if they need help tallying minutes for the month.

Cut out "Caught Ya" Cards:  Ask your teacher how to help.

Speech: Sari Dodge, our speech pathologist, would love help putting together packets any time:
Mon and Wed: 9:15-10:15, 11:15-11:45
Tue: 9:15-11:45
Thur: 9:15-10:15, 10:45-11:15, 1:15-2
Fri: 11-12

Welcome 2013

Here is the January Newsletter. Please read it over. Hopefully by now you are receiving our information via the Skyward system from our school secretary Kalene Neff. The PTO will be communicating through this system, as well as Facebook and some printed fliers for the remainder of the 2012-13 school year.

We will no longer be using the southlandpto@gmail.com email, so if you need to contact us please do it via our Facebook Page (Southland PTO) or you can contact President Katie Larsen at larsenkatie@comcast.net

We have some fun things coming up this year. Stay tuned....
