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!

Upcoming Events

Mark your calendar!

  • The next PTO meeting is on Tuesday, September 23 at 7 p.m. in the Cafeteria. We alternate the meeting schedule every other month to accommodate parents that work during the day and can’t make it to the 9:30 a.m. meetings.
  • Family Movie Night is Friday, September 26! We’ll be sending along details soon, but take our word for it, that night you’ll think EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!

Welcome Back!

It’s that time of year again! Can you believe Summer Break is over already?

The Robert Crown PTO Board wishes all of our families — new and returning — a very successful 2014-2015 school year!

We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new families throughout the year. Our first Robert Crown PTO meeting will be held in the cafeteria on Wednesday, August 27, at 9:30 am. Join us to hear about everything we have coming up to kick off the year and how we were able to support the school with all of the funds raised last school year.

Don’t forget to make your PTO membership official for this year. You will receive forms in the mascot folders sent home in your child(ren)’s backpack on the first day of school. You can also download the forms online here or at the District #118 PTO website.

Be sure to check out the RCS PTO Calendar 2014 2015 for all of the great events and activities we’ll be supporting this year and visit this website regularly for information and event details!

All our best,

Cinda, Judy, Lyn, Carrie and Jill
