South PTC News 4.17.17

Hey South families!  What a few crazy weeks with Spring Break & Easter!  Hope everyone had some great family time.

Big thanks to everyone who came out to Mother & Son Night just before Spring Break.  We had a great turnout and I think the boys had a lot of fun!

I’ve loaded up the Facebook page tonight with lots of upcoming events- sorry for all the notifications, but better to get them all out now and onto your calendars!  Heres what I’ve loaded and whats coming up!
Tomorrow/Tuesday April 18th: Terry Hall Skating Party 6p-8p- $5 Admission & $1 Skate Rental.
Friday April 28th: Jets pizza Dining Fundraiser (Flyer coming home soon!)
May 1-5 Teacher Appreciation Week- This years theme is South Teachers Rock.  The PTC is funding a few things for teachers as a group this year (Lunches/breakfasts, I dont want to give away all our surprises to those teachers reading!) And we’ve sent a note out to room parents for those who want to get their classes to do something special for their teachers.  Look for a note to come from your room parent this week! All participation is voluntary, but we do hope everyone will participate as much as they are able to!
May 5 is also a popcorn Friday- all 400+South students receive free popcorn thanks to the PTC funds!
May 9th will be a Tom & Chee Dining Fundraiser!  Flyer will be coming home soon!
May 12th- Muffins with Moms! Flyer coming home this week.  We ask you fill out the bottom portion & return it so we have an accurate count for how much food to buy!  If any dads or grandparents are willing to help volunteer that morning, we would appreciate it.  There is a spot on the flyer to put your information.
May 12th will also be a PTC Meeting day- last one for this school year, 9am Teachers Lounge!
Friday May 26th will be Field Day & Family Picnic.  The grades will be split up with some competing in games in the morning, and some competing in the afternoon.  All familes are welcome to bring a blanket or bag chairs and sack lunches from 11:30am-12:30pm to enjoy lunch with their students.  Please have students wear their great South dark red t shirts!  PTC will be giving away free SnowCones!  if you can come help- please message me on facebook or cell phone 616-366-1760 (Jackie)

The new PTC Board for the 2017-18 School year is excited and I’ll be sharing more information about them soon.  We will meet soon andstart adding in dates for events next year.  If theres ever anything you want to see, please feel free to reach out to me! (Jackie Stone, 616-366-1760)
