South PTC News 1.15.17
We had a great PTC Meeting on Friday January 13th, Thank you so much to all the parents who attended!
We are happy to report the PTC board & members in attendance Friday 1.13 voted in favor of funding Orff instruments for our students at South. Thanks to our fundraising efforts this year we were able to fund a Soprano Xylophone and a Soprano Metallophone. We also decided to go ahead & fund 2 more instruments- a soprano glockenspiel and an alto glockenspiel. The music teachers and the Grandville Education Foundation have made a 5 year plan to fund these instruments and many more for each of the 7 schools.
In addition, our fundraising efforts have funded a lot more great things recently- new balls (Basketball, Football and Kickball) for the playground/gym! We also purchased a drone for the upper El classes to use! And you may remember we voted to approve $2500 for 6th grade camp!
This is AMAZING! Thank you everyone who participates in all the fundraisers- from Spirit days, to Dining nights and Walk-A-Thon to purchasing Pastry Puffins– These all Add up and make a HUGE Difference for what we can do for our students at South!
Speaking of Walk-A-Thon…Mrs Timmers Class is going bowling Friday (Pizza, pop and 2 games per student) as the winners of the Walk-A-Thon earlier this year! Have fun kids, thanks for all your hard work!
There will be a Box Tops contest starting very soon! The next deadline for us to submit BoxTops is the end of February! There will be forms coming home soon for you to attach your Box Tops to, or send them to school in ziploc baggies with your students name, teacher name & grade on it. There will be a pizza and ice cream party for the class that collects the most, so make sure to ask friends & family to save their Box Tops!
FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY! Carnival! I’m so excited its almost here! I’m in my final preparations mode. Thanks to the parents who have offered to help make games, send in donations or volunteer. We still have more open slots for volunteers later in the night- we hope you’ll take an hour shift to run a game, collect tickets and hand out prizes. It will be a really fun night! Sign up HERE
We will have pizza from Jets for sale in the cafeteria. I have a ton of fun games planned for each of the classrooms. Games are 1-4 tickets and tickets will be sold for .25 cents each.
Please bring CASH! Carnival is 4:30pm-8pm!
We realize parking will be crazy, please be courteous to our neighbors and don’t block driveways.
We have a great video game trailer coming too and students who sold over 7 boxes of Pastry Puffins will have a turn in the trailer for free. Other students can pay tickets like the other games for their turn.
HATCHIMALS! Guess what? I have TWO brand new Hatchimals that we will raffle off Friday night. Seperate raffle ticket 1 for $1 or 6 tickets for $5. Bring Cash!
