South PTC News 6.5.17
Hey South families!
I’ve been a little quieter these last few weeks as we rolled thru the final days of school and our final PTC events. We hope everyone enjoyed the Muffins with Moms and Donuts with Dads events! We cannot do these events without YOU! Thank you for participating in dining nights and Walk-A-Thon and Fundraisers and Spirit Days. Without those fundraisers big & small, we wouldn’t have funding and wouldn’t be able to buy the delicious donuts! So thank YOU for your continued support!
We hope to continue doing all the fun events next year- Walk-A-Thon and Family BBQ in the fall- we are waiting to hear when open house dates will be! The winter Carnival again! Lots of Popcorn Fridays and Spirit Days! Plus skating nights, dining fundraiser nights, and lots more!
Make sure to join the South Elementary PTC Facebook group. Once we have dates, I’ll be able to post them there. And the events give you such a nice reminder 🙂
As it is with the end of the school year, the 6th graders move on, new fresh face kindergarteners appear, and sometimes, a few staff members move on to the next stage of their careers and lives. Lani Pleyel, the amazing librarian and Sue Hjort, the awesome 2nd grade teacher are both retiring! Enjoy retirement! Wendy VanderWest, our trusty rockstar of a secretary in the office at South is moving up to the high school. Thank you all 3, for loving on our children and teaching them!
Also, a thank you to 3 PTC Board members who are moving off the board- Kristy GIbney, Victoria Talsma, and Samantha Siegert. Thank you for all your hard work and guidance to help create programs and exciting things for the kids to do! They will still be volunteering around the school at our events and activities in the next school year though!
If you have any Campbells Soup labels for Education please send them in by Friday- the program ends this year, so we will get those remaining ones sent in. I’m also happy to send in one last round of BoxTops if you send them in by Friday (then they wont sit and collect dust in your kitchen!) As always, don’t forget to use the BoxTops app to scan your receipts and earn more BoxTops for the school! You can also turn in all Family Fare & D&W Receipts for their fundraising program. If you shop on Amazon use the site- Smile.Amazon.com and click on ‘chose your organization’ and select Grandville Parent Teachers Children South Elementary. And finally- the Shoparoo app- take pictures of your receipts and we earn points and they send us $! Easy way to fundraiser for the school over the summer!
Don’t forget, this Friday is a half day for the last day! Enjoy summer everyone and see you in a couple months!
