Welcome from the Ralph Moody PTO!

The Parent Teacher Organization of Ralph Moody Elementary would like to welcome all our new and returning families to the 2019-2020 school year!  We are excited to work together with our Moody community to make this a great year for all our kids where they can have fun, learn and thrive!

The Ralph Moody PTO is made up of parents like you - and whether you have one hour or one hundred hours to help this school year, we'd love your help!  Please take a few minutes to fill out the Moody PTO Volunteer Interest Sign Up Sheet

Silent Auction Update
THE SILENT AUCTION WAS A WONDERFUL SUCCESS!  So far we have raised close to $15,500 and it's all because of YOU!!! And that doesn't even include the contribution from Breckenridge Brewery!

A GREAT BIG 'THANK YOU' TO EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT TO SUPPORT OUR SCHOOL!!!  WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR MOODY FAMILY & COMMUNITY!

If you weren't able to bid on things last Tuesday night, we do have a few open spaces for some awesome teacher offerings, as well as a couple non-specific items still available.  Again, we are waiting to see when the kids will return to school to open these up, but watch for an email with the open offering info to come after that.

If you already bid on and won a teacher offering, please know that we are keeping an eye on things and will update you with times/changes to events as we hear more info about when schools will reopen.  We will be in touch with both our Moody families and teachers as we know more.

In the next few days, we will also be in touch with everyone who won items at the auction but haven't received them yet.  If you have any questions about an auction item you won, please feel free to email fundmoody@gmail.com and we will follow up!

Yearbook 
Even with all the uncertainty with the school closure, we are still proceeding with the yearbook!  We want to make sure the kids have something to remember the great parts of the school year.
Details on how to order yearbooks will follow when we know more about when the kids will head back to school, but in the meantime, wNEED you to check your phones & cameras for any pictures you can share with us for the yearbook.

    We are looking for photos to use from the following activities:
        + The Stride Run
        + Halloween/Valentine's Parties
        + The Color Run
        + Parent/Daughter Dance
        + Parent/Son Ninja Night
        + RAMS Award Assemblies
        + After School Playground Fun Time
        + Restaurant Nights
        + School Field Trips
        + Spirit Days
        + Spelling Bee
        + Photos with Teachers & Staff
   And any other school photos you might have!

If you have pictures from the 2019/2020 school year, please forward them to ralphmoodypto@gmail.com.  The more photos we get from different sources, the more kids that will be represented in the yearbook!
Also, 5TH GRADERS CAN BUY 5TH GRADE DEDICATIONS IN THE YEARBOOK.
Celebrate your 5th grader's accomplishments with a special message in the yearbook.  Forms for this went home to all 5th grade students last Thursday in the Thursday folder, as well as via email last week.
If you need the form again, click here.
Dedication info is due tomorrow, Friday, March 20th, to make sure that it can be in the yearbook.  Payment can be figured out at a later date - we just need the info and photos ASAP.
If you have any questions about 5th grade dedications or yearbooks in general, please email ralphmoodypto@gmail.com.

Staying in Touch During this Difficult Time
We know that this is a strange and uncertain time right now, and that many of our families are feeling isolated.
If you haven't already done so, please join the Ralph Moody PTO Facebook group page at www.facebook.com/groups/RalphMoodyPTO/.
Or like the Ralph Moody PTO Facebook page at www.facebook.com/RalphMoodyPTO.

There is a lot of information being shared on the Moody PTO Facebook pages - including updates from Dr. Mallory, staff check-ins, at home learning resources, and more!  We are even doing ONLINE SPIRIT DAYS to help keep our kids connected.  Plus, it is a great place to ask questions and get quick responses from the Moody community.

Join us on Facebook, and stay in touch!

Sending lots of love to all of our Moody families!

Volunteer
WE NEED YOU! YES YOU! 

PTO POSITIONS - If you are interested in joining the PTO as a Board member, please consider attending a PTO meeting or reaching out to a current board member or please email moodyvolunteers@gmail.com for more information on specific roles and positions. 

We need your help this year! If you have some time to spare, please consider helping with the PTO. Any help is appreciated, no matter how small the time commitment.

It takes all of us, working as a team, each person donating just a little bit of their spare time, to keep the PTO running and supporting our school in a significant way! 

The PTO helps the teachers, we also plan and organize all of the parties our kids love to attend at the school, and we help to subsidize a large portion of a full time teacher's salary each year. If you are wanting to help, even in a small way, we'd love to hear from you! Not only do you get to help out, but you can have some fun and make some great friends along the way!
