Valentine's Thank You
Thank you to Hillary Minerd and Nicole Pavick for leading the Valentine's card-making workshop this year. Eighteen kids attended and were able to make special, heartfelt cards for their loved ones.
Town Meeting Lunch - Tuesday, March 3rd
The PTA is gearing up for one of its biggest fundraising events: Town Meeting Lunch! There are many volunteer opportunities available! Meg Teachout will be chairing the event this year, and can be reached at at
Over the next few weeks, you should receive a call to ask if you can help by donating to the lunch. If you want to save yourself the phone call, you can
email Andrew Lane
directly with what you'll be bringing.
We'll also need help
on Town Meeting Day. We'll need volunteers to set-up, clean-up, and serve lunch AND volunteers to help with childcare (there are also 2 paid childcare positions available!). If you are interested in helping on Town Meeting Day or in days leading up, please contact Meg.
Winter Carnival - Friday, March 6th and Saturday, March 7th
Winter carnival is coming up and promises to be great fun! Check out the schedule of events below. We will need lots of volunteers to make it happen! We especially need leaders - for the morning activities at Murray field, the spaghetti dinner, and for the bonfire and ice skating.
Please check out the volunteer sign up sheet
and see if there is a way you can pitch in. (One tab lists volunteer slots for all the activities and the other tab has food donations for the spaghetti dinner.) Thank you so much!

We are moving our meeting from our normal first Tuesday because of Town Meeting day. (We will return to the first Tuesday schedule for April and following months.) We are also experimenting with a later start time, in the hopes that more people can attend our meetings. We really hope that you can join us! Please be in touch with Christine if there are other ways we can support your participation. Thank you!
