Our first big PTA event of the year is coming soon! Mark your calendars for Friday, September 9th, 5:00-7:30. Here's a rundown of the fun things we have planned:
ADMISSION IS FREE!
We could use some parent volunteers to help with set up, clean up, and supervision activities. If you can spare an hour, please contact Jeremy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have a lot of gently worn shoes taking up space that the kids have outgrown? save them and donate them to our fundraiser that will be starting August 31!
We are excited to be kicking off our first fundraiser with "World Wear Project". We will have boxes at the front entrance of the school where you can place your gently used shoes (no flip flops please).
When we have filled the box with 60 lbs. of shoes, World Wear will pay to ship the shoes back to them and write us a check for $.50/lb. We can ship as many filled boxes as we get!
World Wear's first goal is to make gently worn clothing and shoes affordable and available to people domestically and internationally who might otherwise be unable to afford new clothing.
Secondly, their goal is to help schools, places of worship, community centers, charities and other non-profits generate much needed funds. Their third goal is to promote global responsibility. Providing shoes and clothing for those in need, raising funds for our school and helping our environment all happens when we partner with World Wear Project.
Also, families who bring a pair of shoes to donate to Family Fun Night Sept 9 will get a free raffle ticket to win a LEGO gift basket in addition to one free ticket per family for attending!
The Carpenter Running Club is ready to kick off the 2016-2017 season! All students grades 1-5 are invited to participate (parents are welcome too). Join the group on Friday mornings 8:15-8:45 for walking, jogging or running on the track. What a great way to get some fresh air, exercise, socialize with friends, and start the school day energized and focused! The first meeting will be Friday, September 9th, and will go through November 18th (no meeting on Nov. 11th). In addition, on select days all runners will be invited to combine track running with exercise drills (like jumping jacks and push-ups) or windsprints. Participation is optional but fun is guaranteed! Click below to register your child now!
