Good morning!!

What a great week we had last week at Frostwood!

Thanks to the amazing auction team (Allison Powers, Lauren Nix, Marcia Edmonds, Charlotte Flynn, Megan Sakkal, Stephanie Sparks, Alex Snow, and Jill Perez) for all their hard work and long hours spent working on the online Holiday Auction! Thanks to everyone who supported Frostwood by shopping.  It was a great success!! 

Another big thank you to Tara Read, Connie Jones, Whitni Parker, Ara Hardig, and Heather Cody for putting together the wonderful directory.  That was a huge undertaking given our school’s circumstances with Harvey this Fall.

Last, but not least, I would like to thank Becky Fenn and Kristi Robishaw for hosting a wonderful "UnGala" for the Spring Branch Education Foundation. We are proud that two Frostwood moms are leading the fundraising for SBISD.

As Thanksgiving approaches, let us remember all we have to be thankful for at Frostwood- enjoy the holiday break with your families!

Courtney Anderson
PTA President 2017-2018
 
For those of you who were not able to join us at last Monday's PTA meeting, we have posted the presentation to the PTA website in the "Meeting Minutes" section. This wonderful presentation given by Stephanie Taylor, really helps breakdown how the PTA funds work and are spent. She did a great job of showing how each of our fundraisers impacts our schools spending.

WELLNESS WEEK 2017

Wellness week will be November 13-17th this year. During this week we will focus on health and wellness by tasting different types of pears and apples, running/walking on the track with parents, and listening to some community expert’s talk to us about health and wellness.

If you would like to help with the taste testing on November 13th or 14th please click on the link below. We need volunteers to wash fruit, cut, and distribute to students during health fitness class times.

WALK, BIKE, SCOOT TO SCHOOL

November 17th is the “Walk, Bike, Scoot” to school day. This event encourages Frostwood students and parents to demonstrate healthy lifestyle choices.

You can walk from home or form a neighborhood walking group.
Also, we have organized parent volunteers who will be walking with students that morning from two different locations. One at the CVS parking lot and one at the Memorial Forest Club parking lot. You may drop your kids off between 7-7:10am or join in the fun and walk with them to school from those locations.

Let’s all use “FEET NOT FUEL” on NOVEMBER 17TH!

 



Thank you all for supporting holiday auction! Your generosity is appreciated, and it was a great success!

If you won an item, please pick them up today Monday, November 13 in the multipurpose room between 7:30-8:30 or 10:30-1:00. Cups and necklaces will be delivered at a later date.

Please be on the lookout for a donation package, which will be sent home with your oldest child this week.

We look forward to seeing you all in February!


THIS WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY, GRUB BURGER GIVES BACK!! 

All day Wednesday and Thursday, go eat at Grub Burger, mention Frostwood PTA and we will get money back! Take your kids for dinner, and grab some friends for lunch! This is an easy way to support our PTA!


   
 


Thank you all for being patient with respect to rescheduling the Movie Night on the Field of Dreams. We have decided to schedule the event for the evening of Friday, November 17.  Gates open at 5PM and we will plan to start the movie at 6PM after night fall.  There will be food (PDQ and taco truck) and dessert offerings on site to purchase food, and your donation to the school includes the movie / event as well as refreshments.

Thanks you all again for your patience, and we'll see you Friday 11/17!!!

All the best,
The Dad's Club
