Dear Running Springs Families,
It is hard to believe that we have already finished over a month of school. Thank you to everyone who completed their First Day of School Packets and purchased their PTA Memberships, Yearbooks, Birthday Book Club Books and Emergency Kits. Although our official sale is over, PTA Memberships and Yearbooks are still available to purchase throughout the year.
We concluded September with PTA’s BIGGEST fundraiser, our 10th Annual Redhawk Run-A-Thon. Once again, it was a tremendous success because of your dedication and generosity. We want to extend our thanks to the many parent volunteers who came and helped out the day of the event. We could not have done it without you.
A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to Terri Haikalis, who was this year’s chairperson. She works full time and was able to pull off this wonderful event. Terri spent countless hours organizing, getting donations and communicating with parents. She came up with many new and amazing ideas. She did an AWESOME job!!! Due to all of her hard work and to the generosity of the families here at Running Springs, we were able to exceed our fundraising goal. As promised, our FREE DRESS day will be October 31st (no costumes allowed). 100% of the funds raised stay at Running Springs to help fund activities that enrich your child’s school experience! Thank you again to all those who donated.
The fun doesn’t stop in September. October is a fun-filled month for Running Springs! There will be conferences, 6th grade Outdoor Science Camp, Red Ribbon Week, fall parties and the very popular Family Fun Night! Watch for more information on these events in your child’s communication folder. Family Fun Night needs many volunteers, so please sign up to volunteer to help!
Thank you to all our parents who are taking on the role of Room Parent! We are so lucky at Running Springs to have so many parents that are so generous with their time!
Lastly, our October PTA meeting will be on Thursday, October 10th at 8:15am in the MPR. Everyone is welcome. We hope to see you there!
Patty Chau, PTA President
