South PTC News 2.26.17

Hey South Families!  Here are the latest updates!
BoxTops contest!  Super mom Amy A. finished counting all the BoxTops submitted and got them sent out.  Grand Total of 8,684 Total Box Tops!  Which gets the school $868.40!  She had a lot of expired ones to remove from our mailing, so please make sure to check those as you send them in and we will be sending in our BoxTops much more often now that we have someone willing to coordinate!  So the winning classroom was Mrs Hjort with 944 total BoxTops!  Congrats Mrs Hjort, your class wins a Pizza & Ice Cream party!

PTC Nomination forms went home for the 2017-18 School Year.  If you or someone you know may be interested, please nominate them.  Someone from the current Board will reach out to them, or we are happy to speak with anyone on any questions they may have. board-nomination-form-17-18  Forms are due back next Friday the 10th and will be discussed and voted on at our April meeting.

Well its nearly March, here is what the upcoming calendar looks like for PTC events!

Just a reminder- Muffins with Moms is scheduled for May 12th and Donuts with Dads is June 2nd.  Flyers will be coming home after Spring Break for people to send in with their RSVP so we can plan enough muffins & donuts!  Tentative time is 7:45am til 8:20am.  Please plan to stay with your child until school begins as we do not have the ability to watch children!

In case you missed the post in our Facebook group- Amy G. announced South was awarded a grant towards the school garden!  “The Grandville Education Foundation grant was a success!  We received $2,421.47 toward the cost of building the fence and the 400+ pickets! We will need some help with paint and brushes, but we will keep you up to date on that! Looking forward to your kiddos making this garden their own! Thanks to Julie Moore and the GEF for pushing this forward!”

Thanks for all your support!!
