South Elementary PTC News 9.11.16

Good evening South families!

We had a great 1st meeting of the PTC on Friday September 9th!  Anyone is welcome to join us- 9am on the 2nd Friday of the month.  The next meeting will be Friday October 14th.  In this recent meeting we approved the PTC budget for the 2016-2017 school year, met with Marsha Force of the Grandville Education Foundation to learn about grants available to our teachers, had a visit from Pastry Puffins for an upcoming fundraiser, and went over a handful of other topics.

One thing Principal Roberts did want to mention was with the new parking lot- please cross with your child over the raised sidewalk.

The 3rd graders will be taking a field trip to ArtPrize- date is still to be confirmed.

Tuesdays restaurant fundraiser will be at Tom & Chee (In front of Cabelas) from 4pm-8pm.  We will earn 15% of all sales during that time- so please show your flyer to the cashier.  its also Kids Eat Free night- purchase a combo and receive 2 Lil Grilla meals free (for kids under 12).  We will have lots of great restaurant fundraisers this year!   tom-and-chee

The school Open house is on the 15th at 6pm!  The Kindergarten & Young 5 teachers will not be on site that night.  Please take a minute to walk around with your child and see all the great improvements that were made over the summer!

The Walk-A-Thon is coming up on September 30th! All kids will participate even if they dont have pledges.  Mr. Karnehms class is in the lead by $100!  This is our biggest fundraiser and we appreciate the support! Walk-A-Thon Pledge Form Walk-A-Thon Information Sheet Walk-A-Thon Rules

That evening following the Walk-A-Thon will be the Family BBQ from 4:30pm-7pm!  We will have food and inflatable fun for everyone including a free hot dog, chips and drink. (Additional food items will be available for purchase.) Volunteer link will be posted soon!

Did you go shopping this weekend?  Do you know there is a super easy way to help us raise funds?  Download the app called “Shoparoo” snap pictures of your receipts and we earn cash! Once you have it downloaded, enter our zip code and select our school- South Elementary School PTC!  My favorite part- you can set a reminder so it will alert you to upload.
