October was certainly a busy month! Thank you to our amazing Family Fun Night Committee Hannah Etherson and Nina Sellers!! It was an amazing transformation to turn our school blacktop into a Circus! All of their hard work paid off and the night was a HUGE success!!! Thank you also to all the parents that helped make this event run so smoothly! We could not do it without YOU!
Thank you to Patty Chau for chairing Red Ribbon Week! I loved the new themed days this year! And all of the red ribbons around the school were a good reminder to be Drug Free! We hope everyone’s Fall Parties were lots of fun and that everyone enjoyed the Free Dress Day! Thank you to our Room Parents for all of their time and effort in planning them!
A special thank you to Lindsey Rarey and Kerena Mendez who work so hard to make sure you have all the PTA news in the format you like! Lindsey puts a lot of time into the newsletter and Kerena keeps us informed daily via social media, so don’t forget to follow us on FB, IG and Twitter!! I appreciate all of their time and effort to make sure we keep our parents “in the know”!!!
As we gear up for November, it’s hard to believe we are wrapping up our First Trimester. WOW! Don’t forget that there is no school on Tuesday, November 6th and Monday, November 12th plus a minimum day on Friday, November 16th. No doubt this month is going to zoom by!
Please join us for our November PTA meeting on Thursday, November 8th in the Redhawk Community Room at 8:15am. Please note that this is a different location than than the typical MPR. Our December meeting will be held offsite at my home on Thursday, December 13th. Please RSVP to me at [email protected] if you are planning to attend the December meeting, so I can send you the details. EVERYONE is welcome!
As we think about the things we are thankful for in November, I want to personally thank again all of our committed parents at Running Springs! Your time and generous donations are always greatly appreciated! We couldn’t do any of this without YOU!
