Just a quick shout out to all the parents who have been shopping with Snow in mind. We recently received word that PTA will be getting checks from Kroger Community Rewards ($78.06) and Amazon Smile ($6.60). While the total is not a lot, every bit helps, and it’s nice to have such low-effort fundraisers!
It’s that time of year when PTA reimburses the school nearly $2,000 for all of the spring field trip buses. We love helping our students get out and have these fun experiences!
Hard to believe, but we are only three weeks away from our fabulous end-of-year picnic! The picnic will be June 7 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the school.
We encourage families to buy tickets ahead to save money and reduce the lines at the event. Forms should be coming home with students. Or you can print a Picnic PreSale Form here.
We also need volunteers – lots and lots of volunteers – to make this evening a success. Please consider visiting our Signup Genius at http://bit.ly/SnowPicnic19 and finding a way to help. Grandparents, responsible teenage or older siblings, and friends of the school are also welcome to help out. Just note that only paid PTA members are allowed at the two stations that handle money.
Thanks in advance, and we look forward to seeing you all in June!
Snow PTA will be selling some treats during Wednesday’s outdoor concert for the kindergarten through third grade. We could use another couple volunteers to help staff it and a couple more coolers. If you can help, please contact Michelle Giles.
Our next Snow PTA meeting will be at 6 p.m. this Wednesday. We are getting down to the busy end of year rush – including picnic planning – and could use some input and assistance. Many hands make light work! We hope to see a few more of your there!
May meeting agenda
Penny War results are finally in and the winner is….
Thank you to all the classes and parents for working together on this fundraiser.
Final results were:
Fifth grade -708
Fourth grade 3,254
Third grade 1,833
Second grade 18,412
First grade 1,492
School total $537.60
We are moving into the final day of Penny War and this is what more than $20 in pennies looks like.
Fourth grade had the heaviest jug on Thursday, but second grade pulled way in the lead. Why? Cash, cold hard cash counts as positives for your class. Only silver coins (quarters, nickels and dimes) count against a class.
The score board going into the final day…
- 5th grade – 800
- 4th grade 2,704
- 3rd grade 308
- 2nd grade 5,935
- 1st grade 716
- Kindergarten -244
- Preschool -94
- School total so far $239.84
Remember Friday is the last day to put money in the jugs for your class. The containers will be out before and after school. May the best class win!
So Penny War is off to a slow start – more like a squirt gun fight with a toddler. Class ranks after day 1:
- 5th grade -123 (yes, that’s minus)
The school total so far is $17.54.
Ice cream for the whole school is looking doubtful.
