PTO Notes: Week of September 15

Thank you to everyone who came out in support of the District 118 Community Crawl. We got great feedback from the participating businesses and were pleased to see so many generous people brave the sudden cold snap last Thursday to donate to the School Supply Drive at Back to School Night at the Wauconda Farmer’s Market!

Here’s what’s coming up this week:

Market Day Orders Due

Do you need to stock up on family favorites for dinner or school lunch essentials? The first Market Day order of the year is due this week, on Thursday, September 18. You may turn in the paper order form that your student brought home in his or her backpack, or place an order online. You will then pick up  you order in the Cafeteria on Monday, September 22 from 3:40-5:30.

We are also looking for volunteers to help sort orders between 2:30 and 3:40 on the day of pick up. Contact Jessica Schachelmayer if you can help out!

Popcorn Sales

The first popcorn sales of the year are on Friday! Look for a reminder flyer in your student’s backpack this week. Each student has the opportunity to purchase 1 small 25-cent bag of fresh-popped popcorn during their lunch period. Kindergartners and Early Childhood students can also purchase popcorn and will bring it home in their backpacks.

If you have any questions or would like to help pop or sell popcorn on Friday, or any other “popcorn day” throughout the year, contact Jill Morino.

Room Parents/Classroom Parties

All Head Room Parents were notified by their teachers last week and will be meeting on Wednesday, September 17 at 7 p.m., to kick off the year’s fun and festivities! You should receive a letter of introduction from your child/ren’s Head Room Parent within the next couple weeks, as planning for the Halloween party — scheduled for October 31 — will kick into high gear.

As a reminder, only three additional parent volunteers will be allowed to attend the classroom parties and assist the Room Parent. The teachers will choose the parent helpers based on the feedback they receive from everyone and you will be notified if you were selected. Weather permitting, we will hold a Halloween costume parade around the outside of the building that everyone is welcome to attend, but only the selected volunteers can stay for the parties!
