Dear Running Springs Parents,
Hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving break as we head into December. ‘Tis the season to be jolly. Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la.
December is full of fun and exciting events. We will start off the month with the Holiday Gift Shop. It will be open Monday, December 9th through Saturday, December 14th. It will be closed on Thursday, December 12. The shop will be open in the MPR before school, during recess and lunch and after school. Your child will be able to do their holiday shopping on their own in a fun and controlled environment. We are still looking for volunteers. If you are available, please sign up at the following website.
If your child would like to create their own holiday gifts, they will enjoy our annual December Crafts held on Tuesday, December 10th and Wednesday, December 11th right after school. There will be some new and cute crafts they can create. December Crafts is always a fun and popular event.
Thank you to Debbie Nita for handling all of our Room Parent coordinating. Students will finish out the year with their annual classroom Holiday Parties on Friday, December 20th. Don’t forget to watch your emails for detailed information from your room parents. Your support and donations are always greatly appreciated and it helps ensure that these events are the best for your child and his or her classroom.
The last day of school for 2019 will be Friday, December 20th and students will return to school on Monday, January 13th, 2020. Have a wonderful Winter Break!
Also mark your calendar for PTA’s upcoming events when we return from winter break. Emcee applications for 6th graders, applications for Talent Show, the very popular Know Your States Tests and Valentine’s Bingo are all coming up next year!
Our December PTA Meeting will be held off campus on Thursday, December 12th. If you are interested in attending, please contact me directly at [email protected] for details. We will be having it catered so please RSVP by Monday, December 9th. Our January PTA meeting will be on Thursday, January 16th at 8:15am back in the MPR. Everyone is welcome to attend. Not only are you able to hear the latest PTA information, but our principal, Mr. McLaughlin is always there to give us the most up-to-date school information.
As always, thank you to all our parents who do so much for our school. I wish all of our Running Springs families a happy holiday season with family and friends filled with happiness that never ends.
Patty Chau, PTA President
