Happy New Year! I am so excited for the new year and all the fun the second half of the school year holds! The new year is the time for our PTA sponsored grade level assemblies. Thank you to Jennifer Reighter for scheduling all these memorable assemblies! Many of our favorites are returning, such as 6th grade Dare-to-Dance, 5th Grade Walk Through the American Revolution and much, much more! Plus, Valentine’s Bingo, Know Your States and Talent Show are fast approaching! There are lots of details in this newsletter about these events. If you have the time to volunteer, I highly recommend any and all of them! These are three of my favorite PTA events! I promise you will have as much fun as the kiddos! Contact the event chairmen to join their committees!
Know Your States
The PTA looks forward to supplying a pizza party for all the perfect scores on the States Challenge and medals to all those students with perfect scores on the Capitals Challenge! Check out the newsletter for helpful hints and links! A GIANT thank you to Janet Trout for chairing this event.
Be sure to purchase your Valentine’s Bingo cards! Due to popular demand with this event, we will again be hosting TWO sessions!! Both will be on the same night…the first session is 3-5pm and the second session is 6-8pm. What a fun night for families to come out and enjoy dinner and fun in one place! Tons of thanks to Jill Parkin for being our chairman on this highly anticipated annual event!
A HUGE thank you to Melinda Chisick and Kristin Cruz for chairing this year’s December Crafts event. Students loved their new crafts! In addition, we have the best parents! Thank you so much to those that volunteered during the event, especially our very own RS students that stepped behind the tables to assist their peers in doing the crafts. Not only do we have some amazing parents, we have amazing students as well!
Our PTA Nominating Committee has been formed. They will be putting together the new slate of officers for the 2019-2020 school year. If you are interested in seeing what positions are available on the PTA Executive Board, please contact me as soon as possible so we know you are interested. Thank you in advance to all our committed parents for accepting these important positions.
Classroom parties will be held on Wednesday, February 14th for Valentine’s Day. Thank you in advance to all our Room Parents for all of their organizing!!! Don’t forget our February PTA meeting will be on Thursday, February 14th at 8:15am in the Redhawk Community Room. EVERYONE is WELCOME!
