PTL Notes and Reminders  
  • Butter Braid forms have gone home. If you didn't receive yours, blank forms are available in the office.
  • Teacher Christmas gifts - we will be doing this a bit differently this year, please watch for a letter to come home before Thanksgiving. PTL WILL NOT be collecting money for all teachers like we have done in the past. Individual families can give gifts to the teacher (or your class can decide to give a class gift). PTL will still do a monetary collection for specials teachers that you may contribute to beginning in early December. We wanted to give you a heads up because some of you have probably begun your Christmas shopping. Watch for more details coming in late November.
  • Thanks to all who donated, helped, and attended Dads and Donuts!
  • Santa Shop - a volunteer coordinator is still needed!  If you'd like to serve in this position your help is greatly appreciated. Please contact Adrienne Olsen adrienneo@hotmail.com for more details. Not sure you want to take this on alone? Perhaps a friend will co-lead with you.
  • The next PTL meeting will be held on Monday, November 26. All parents are invited to attend.
