Hello Running Springs Families!

The school year is quickly coming to a close so we thought we’d share one quick last bit of info before it ends.

Back To School Shopping
As we’re sure you’ve noticed from the email have been sent, flyers that have gone home, and social media posts, we’ve partnered with 1st Day School Supplies to make your back-to-school shopping easy peasy! We’ve given them the school supply lists from our teachers. All you have to do is purchase the kit online, and your student’s school supplies will be delivered directly to them on the first day of school. The supplies they get are the name-brand products requested by the teacher. It couldn’t be easier! Visit the link below to purchase your student’s kit:

Reflections
We are thrilled to announce that we’re bringing back the Reflections program for the 2018-2019 school year! This is your child’s opportunity to create and submit an art project in one of 6 categories:
1. Literature
2. Visual Arts
3. Photography
4. Dance Choreography
5. Music Composition
6. Film Production
The theme is Heroes Around Me and the deadline for submissions is September 26, 2018, so your student has all summer to work on it. We can’t wait to see what our creative students come up with! For more information, rules, and the entry form, please visit the Reflections page.

Clothing Drive
Have you noticed the new bright green bin in front of school? It’s located at the south end of the campus, next to the steps. We’ve partnered with USAgain to raise money for our school! All you have to do is drop off any clothes, shoes, or household textiles you’d like to get rid of. Place it in the bin, they’ll pick it up and weight it, and the school will get paid for your old, unwanted items! Here are their rules:

** Accepted items: clothes, shoes and household textiles regardless of condition. Household textiles include tablecloths, towels, bedding, blankets, bedspreads, etc.

** They can’t accept mattresses, furniture, appliances, carpet, household items, toys or trash. Please do not leave these items in or around a USAgain clothing drop box.

** Clothes, shoes and textiles must be clean and dry and dropped off in tied plastic bags. A sturdy plastic bag protects the clothes from dirt and simplifies handling.

** Please don’t leave anything outside the bin. If you have something that will not fit in the bin, please email or call USAgain.

Please note, this is not a PTA fundraiser. The funds raised go directly to the school.

Open PTA Positions
We have two positions left to fill on the PTA for next school year!
** Family Fun Night Chairperson
** Parliamentarian
If you’re interested in filling either of these positions or would like to nominate someone, please contact us!

School Announcements
** The last College Wear Day will be Wednesday, June 6.
** Tomorrow, June 1, is a minimum day.
** Thursday, June 14 is a minimum day and the last day of school.

To keep up with PTA news over the summer, please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

Have a fantastic summer and we’ll see you back at school on August 22nd!

Thanks!
Running Springs PTA
