There are many ways to get involved and easily contribute to the efforts of the PTO. You can bring in items to contribute to the grade-level baskets, make a donation to the Wine Pull, or, if you own or work at a business that would like to buy advertising, we have space starting at $250 in our new auction online format.  You could also offer a good or service to be donated and included in an auction package.  Maybe you have a friend or neighbor that could help by making a donation.
 
Some ideas you might consider:
  • any type of gift cards for local businesses (e.g., restaurants, spas/salons, retail stores, etc.) 
  • tickets to a sporting event or show (especially if you have a season ticket package)
  • free stays in vacation homes/hotels or vacation packages

Please consider ways that you can help us have the best silent auction to date!  The PTO would love to hear from you!  Any questions or ideas please email Stacy Holdsworth at bholdsworth@gmail.com 

An Invitation for an Upcoming Evening Program

 HELPING OUR CHILDREN BUILD POSITIVE FRIENDSHIPS

 
While our children may find academics come easily, the complex nature of managing friendships is often something they find difficult.  How can parents support sensitive gifted kids as they navigate relationships with others?   When is parent involvement helpful and when is it important to coach or stand back to let your child work through these interactions on his or her own?  Licensed clinical psychologist, Amy Rexroth, will share examples and suggestions of situations frequently experienced by our children in their social lives and how parents can help them successfully cope and thrive.  

Join us on Wednesday, March 11 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the ESC for an evening of discussion with Amy Rexroth.

Greetings from the Media Center!

 I have had a lovely time getting to know everyone here – students, staff and even some parents!  

  I would like to extend another invitation to feel free to pop in to the media center any time and volunteer some of your precious time.  The door is open!  (And the help is ALWAYS appreciated.)
Honestly, any time you have to offer – even if it is only for 10 minutes – would be such a help.
The kind volunteers I've had offered to check books in, check students out (both easy tasks that can be taught quickly), or help with the students in their search of a book. If you are interested in helping, you can email me, use this link, or just pop in at your convenience.  
Thank you,
Mrs. Lotarski

Clinic Needs

Families, as you change out your child's wardrobe from spring/summer to fall/winter, please consider donating your children's clothing to our SGE Clinic.  We are in need of all children's sizes, but we have the greatest need for smaller sizes for our kindergarten friends, this includes the need for store-bought and packaged undergartments. Any donation would be greatly appreciated!

Volunteer Background Checks

 This is a friendly reminder of our new volunteer background check guidelines.  As of January 1st, 2014, there are two types of background checks - Limited and Full.  The full details of this can be found by clicking here.

 
We wanted to ensure you were aware of the "Full" background check guidelines, since there is a fee and it take additional time to get this processed. 
The "full" background check is required when anyone volunteers with students & is working with them without the teacher supervision and/or if you accompany us on a school field trip.  It does take 5-7 days to process and there is also cost of $15.95, which is payable online. Once it submitted and cleared, it lasts for five years. 
 
If you plan to volunteer and at some point you are asked to work with them by the teacher without his/her supervision and/or if you do plan on attending future field trips, please do submit the "full" background check.  This link here will take you directly there. 
We thank you for your assistance to this matter!
