South PTC Update 1.7.18

Hello South families!  I hope everyone had a great break and the kids are ready to head back to school!  Here’s whats coming up!

The extended drop off lane in front of the school will be a great way to unload kids and pickup with this cold weather!  Multiple cars should be un/loading at the same time.  Do not wait to get to the front space before unloading.  Same goes for the side pickup for the Upper El.  Do not park and exit your car in any of the drop off areas.  If your student needs help exiting the vehicle, or if you need to exit the vehicle, then you MUST find a parking spot.  It creates a traffic hazard to have drivers opening their doors and stepping into traffic lanes.  Please follow these rules and tell anyone who will be picking up or dropping off kids about the rules (Grandparents, sitters, daycare, siblings).

Sub Sale order forms and checks are due on Wednesday!  We hope the break gave you a good opportunity to show family & friends the order forms.  We think this will be a great fundraiser with something that everyone likes!  And we appreciate your support by asking friends, family & co-workers!  Sub pickup is February 8th after school, please make a note to be there for pickup as we cannot keep orders since they have to be refrigerated.  We will plan to be at the school until 6pm that night!

Wednesday night is also our Big Boy dining Fundraiser. Make sure to turn in your flyer to the cashier when you pay.  They donate 100% of the profits back to South!

Friday January 12th is a free popcorn Friday where all students receive a free bag of popcorn as a thanks for the PTC!

Saturday January 13th is a Griffins fundraiser night!  Purchase tickets with our code and South earns a donation back per ticket purchased.  This is a deal that can be shared, copy & paste and share with your friends!

Tuesday January 16th is a Jets Pizza fundraiser night- flyer will be coming home this week.

Thursday January 18th will be an evening PTC Meeting at 6:30pm at the school.  We hope these evening meetings will draw in other parents who may not be available for the morning meetings.

Friday January 26th: Its a 1/2 Day so dismissal is at 11:36am.  Its also a Spirit Day- Wear your Favorite Sports Team shirt to school.  Oh, and just a little event called the SOUTH FAMILY CARNIVAL!  The Carnival will take place 4:30pm-8pm.  This is our 2nd year putting together this event, so if you came last year, you know we decorate the school, each classroom has a game to play (Buy tickets for the games at the door) and there will be pizza available for purchase in the cafeteria.  We work really hard to make this a fun event, but its a huge event, and we need volunteers!  If you can give a little of your time while your kids play some games, we would be very grateful!  The Sign up link is HERE!

A couple other big things to note:

Daddy Daughter Dance will be Friday February 16th (which is a half day)
Mother Son Night will be Friday March 16th
More info on both will be coming home about a month before the event and will be posted here and our Facebook page!  Thanks for your support!
