PTA/PTO Discussion

The executive board would like to discuss the possibility of becoming at PTO. If you have questions, or concerns please email Kourtney Jolley at or come to the next board meeting for a discussion. Please take the time to research the pro's and con's of switching so we can do what best meets the needs of our students and make an informed decision.

No Cookie Dough Fundraiser

We are doing one of our two major fundraisers this year!

 Kids are to ask for donations for our school, rather than selling cookie dough.  Donations of $15 and up are put in a drawing for prizes.  The more an adult donates, the more chances s/he has to win multiple/better prizes (the prizes are for the donors--not the kids).  If you have questions about the drawings, please call the office.

We are trying to raise money for iPads for the classes.  Currently each class has one iPad (except for 5th grade which shares 6 more between the two classes and Special Ed, which has a total of about 4).  We need more!  Our goal, as a STEAM school, is to eventually have one computing device for every child in the school.  Every penny earned with this fundraiser will be used to buy iPads.  Please help!

Please note that every child who brings back an envelope by November 19th will receive a ticket for a free ice cream at Arctic Circle.  The tickets say they expire on Nov. 15th.  Arctic Circle will continue to honor the tickets after that date.

Please support your students!

Tuesday: Sock it to Drugs by wearing crazy, colorful socks today. There will be a winner for the best socks. We also have an assembly with the drug dogs today

Wednesday: Friends don't let Friends do drugs. Today you get to dress like your friends! There will be a prize for the best dressed group of friends.

Thursday: Our future is so bright we gotta wear shades. Wear your sunglasses to school today. Also today will be the color obstacle course with the students from SUU. Please remember to wear clothes that can get stained if the color doesn't wash out.

Friday: We're red-y to say no to drugs. Please wear red today for school spirit. We will have an assembly today about staying safe while Trick or Treating!

Please encourage your students to support us in dressing up each day and participating in the week of fun activities!! A huge thanks to all of those who have worked so hard to make this week a success.
