November 2019 PTA Newsletter

Hello PTA members!

Our BIG fundraiser is starting TOMORROW!  ANY child who sells TEN items gets to go on a field trip to UNC & Duke campuses! We are selling delicious cookie dough this year! Look for these packets coming home Wednesday. It will help with all the holiday baking! The dates are 11/13-12/2.  This way your child(ren) can hit up family and friends over the Thanksgiving Holiday and they will be delivered before track out on 12/17.  We are shooting to raise money to be able to send our students on field trips to enhance their learning experiences! Let's do this!

Our book fair is coming up! It is Nov. 18-Nov. 26. Every purchase from the book fair earns rewards for our school, so please stop by and support us. We are looking for volunteers! Sign up today: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0a4aa8aa23a3fc1-ewms

We'd love to get some parents involved with our PTA Board! Please plan on coming to our next meeting on Monday, November 18th from 5-6pm. We meet in the conference room off of the front office. We have most of the board leaving after this school year and it would be WONDERFUL to have some people shadow our board members and be able to step in next year! We also have a current opening for a Member at Large.

In case you missed it, here is some things we need help with: 

We need some help with selling snacks and drinks in the cyber cafe'.  Here the link to sign-up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0C4BACAC28ABFA7-cyber

Please remember you MUST be an APPROVED WCPSS volunteer for THIS school year.  You can sign-up anytime AT the school but it does take a few weeks for approval.

Thank so much to those who have signed up for donating things that our GREAT teachers have asked for!  We are still in need of candy, board games, hand lotions and air fresheners. Please visit this sign up sheet and donate, if you can: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c4bacac28abfa7-donations. The donation sheet goes until the end of the year, so please come back to it each month or months that you are able to send something in.
