South PTC News 3.12.17

Hey there South families!  Heres the latest & greatest-
First off- Thanks to Jessica Lemmon, her Daddy Daughter Dance Committee and all the volunteers who helped Friday night at the dance!

We also had a great evening PTC Meeting on Wednesday last week.  Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out!

Thursday March 16th & Tuesday March 21st are Parent Teacher Conferences. Thursday the 16 Food sign up for Teachers is HERE.  Tuesday the 21st sign up is HERE.  Thanks for volunteering to bring food in for teachers!  They really appreciate being able to grab something good to eat quickly on the busy conference nights!

Lost & Found!  Its a growing pile- please take a moment when you are in for conferences to look over the tables and see if you can identify any of your children’s clothing!

Toilet paper Tubes- We are looking for any toilet paper tubes to assist with planting marigolds for our garden, please send them in to the office as soon as possible!  Our Garden Champion Amy Gardine will be coordinating with each grade to paint self portraits on our fence pickets.  Its going to look great!

Mother Son night is the 29th, it should be great fun.  If you can spare 30 minutes (or more) to volunteer in a certain area- Sign Up HERE!

There will be a school wide BE NICE Assembly on March 27th!  be nice. is a positive anti-bullying initiative designed to spread awareness surrounding the issues of bullying and the importance of treating people with civility community-wide. By creating awareness, we will minimize and reduce the devastating effects of bullying such as depression and suicide.  Bullying is a significant issue within our schools and communities both locally and nationally. The be nice. campaign strives to educate students and community members about how simply “being nice” is an effective way to promote a safe and civil environment within the school and community.

Keep sending in those food items for the Kids Food Basket Donation Drive by the 3rd graders!  The food we are collecting is- 100% Fruit Juice Boxes, Fruit Cups or pouches, or applesauce cups or pouches, granola bars, cracker packs, small raisin boxes, quart sizer zipper lock bags.

Also feel free to keep sending in BoxTops and Spartan Stores/Family Fare and D&W Receipts!  We will have a place for all of these to go just past the office next tot he Lost & Found.  I’ll post a picture on our facebook group this week!  Other easy ways to raise money for our school is using the Shoparoo app to snap pictures of your receipts, and also, using and selecting the charity “Grandville Parent Support Organizations Parents-Teachers-Children S Element” and every time you shop Amazon- use that site and we will get a portion back!

We are looking for a trophy case to display all our students achievements and trophy’s.  If you see a display case or something similar, please let one of us know!

2017/18 School Year PTC Board- we’ve collected some nomination forms from next year and will do our official vote at our April PTC Meeting so new members can attend the May meeting (The last of this school year).

Mr Roberts reported that the fans we got earlier in the school year are about 75% installed- so the classrooms will have fans come warmer weather!  The rest should be finished up over the next few weeks!  Its amazing we were able to provide these with YOUR financial support!  THANK YOU!
