Thankful Thursdays is a new initiative started by the PTA as a way to show our appreciation to our hard working teachers and staff by stocking the Teachers' Lounge with coffee, snacks, notes of appreciation, flowers, etc., on the first Thursday of each month. Our first Thankful Thursday will take place on Thursday, September 5th and will be sponsored by Ms. Roseberry's 4th grade homeroom. The schedule for the rest of the school year is as follows:
October - Grant (4th grade)
November - Sanders (5th grade)
December - Natal (5th grade)
January - McNabb (5th grade)
February - Masood (6th grade)
March - Loadholt (6th grade)
April - Crosby-Guard (6th grade)
May - PTA
Room parents for the respective homerooms will coordinate the Thankful Thursdays. Please be on the lookout for more information when it's your child's homeroom's turn.
Speaking of Room Parents......... We are still in desperate need of room parents for Ms. Natal's 5th grade and Ms. Loadholt's 6th grade classrooms. Please contact email@example.com to volunteer. Room parent participation is essential to the success of our many initiatives this year.
The Book Fair is coming: Want to volunteer? Help make the event a success by signing up online or emailing Book Fairy firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Fall Festival will take place on October 19th. Please plan to join us for a day of fun! We are still in need of volunteers. Send a message to email@example.com if you are interested. Emails will be going out this week for those who have already signed up to volunteer.
