South PTC Updates 4.30.18

Hello South families!  Its the final stretch of this school year!  Just a few things to give you a heads up on.

If you have a teacher request for the coming year, make sure to get it in by tomorrow (Tuesday May 1)!  Forms are available in the office.

We are doing another movie fundraiser- Avengers Infinity War!  It’s this Friday May 4th at 7pm at Celebration Rivertown.  The flyers were set to go home this past Friday (Or check for them today)
Tickets are $10 each.  You also have the option to pre-purchase pop & popcorn combos at a discount.  Small size combo is $5, Regular size combo is $7.  Make sure to send in your form (Or write on a piece of paper what you’d like to purchase with your check or cash)  You will be able to pick up your tickets at the movie theater on Friday from 6:30-6:50pm.  PTC Board member Beth DeLoizer will be at a table right outside the box office with the tickets!

There will also be another Moms Night Out movie announced soon!

Teacher Appreciation is next week! May 7-11, so be on the lookout from notes from your room parents if they are collecting towards a gift card or doing a small item each day.  Parents are choosing to collect money only and then purchase the gifts themselves. Others are choosing to participate in daily themes as we’ve done in previous years. Some do a combo of both. If you choose to participate in the daily themes they will be:
Mon – hand written card/picture
Tues – sweet treat (store bought or gift card) NO HOMEMADE
Wed – flower (store bought or drawn/created)
Thurs – class supply
Fri – pamper supplies/gift card

Teachers love the items from the kids and you do not have to spend a lot of money on it!  The homemade notes, cards and pictures are truly treasured by the teachers.

Flower Sale went great and we earned over $1400!  That’s 317 baskets/pots sold!  Please plan to pickup your items on Thursday May 10th from 1pm-6pm at the school parking lot.

May 16th is our Cone World Fundraiser- flyer will be sent home next week!

Friday May 18th is the Kindergarten Beach Day party in the K Classrooms.  A fun day for the kids!

Donuts with Mom is coming up on Friday May 18th from 7:30-8:15.  Moms/Grandma’s/Aunties/Friend etc stop by with your South students to enjoy a donut before school starts!  We would love to have some dads stop out and help serve the donuts and set up tables before people arrive. You can meet at the school at 6:30am to begin set up.

Field Day is Friday May 25th.  Class times have not been announced yet but I will post as soon as I receive them!  And everyone is welcome to come watch the kids compete during their times.  PTC will be serving the kids snowcones as they finish their competitions and we could use help running the snow cone machine and serving the kids as they come up.  It’s really easy and we only need about 2-3 more parents.  So if you want to come help (and hopefully enjoy the sun) let me know.  I’ll post on Facebook about it for volunteers too!

Also on Friday May 25th is the family picnic!  All Parents are invited to bring a sack lunch up to the school and enjoy lunch outside with the kids!  Bring bag chairs and blankets too as outside seating is limited.  We will have any remaining Grandville gear out for sale along with our South bumper stickers, so please bring cash if yo’re interested in any items.

The Garden is in full swing thanks to Amy Gardine!  If you missed the posts on Facebook go take a look.  Happy kids making stepping stones and helping in the greenhouse!
Amy has asked for parent volunteers to come up & help May 15 & 16th.  The wood chips have brought the soil levels down and she needs to abate the soil- which means we need Dairy Doo or “Raised Bed Soil”  She found a great deal at Big Top Market at 36th & Clyde Park (3630 Clyde Park Ave SW, Wyoming, MI) so if you have time, swing by & grab a few bags to drop off at the garden, or donations are welcome and she can pick up the bags!  3 bags for $6.  Sign up here!
Once the soil is corrected there will be an all school planting day on May 17th where teachers are signing up for time slots and the kids will come out to help plant this years crops!  I’ll post times once we have them so if you’d like to stop by, you can do so with your kids class.


The last PTC Meeting of this school year will be Friday May 18th at 9am- Following the Donuts with Mom event.  If you can, please stay and attend the meeting!
The PTC members voted at the last meeting in April and the Board for 2018/19 school year is as follows:
President: Alison Edidin
Co-Vice-Presidents: Jessica Lemmon & Sarah Stevens
Treasurer: Jen Johnston
Secretary: Samantha Siegert
Volunteer Coordinator: Beth DeLoizer

We are thankful for everyone that has stepped forward to keep this committee going strong!  And thank you to everyone who volunteers for a position next year or to chair an event.  There are still a few spots open and we will look for volunteers as needed!

Reminder- there is no school Monday May 28th, and a half day Friday June 1st!
Jets Pizza Fundraiser is scheduled for Tuesday May 29th- last one!

Thanks for your support and please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
