PTA NEWS:

(November 4th, 2018)

Thank you so much for all your help in making Fall Festival such a fun, successful event. This wouldn't have been possible without your support and we appreciate your kindness and generosity.

The profit from Fall Festival will be counted by the treasurer and the amount we made will be posted here as soon as it's available.

(November 2nd, 2018)

Fall Festival is tomorrrow! Thank you so much for all your help.

Here are information about this afternoon's setting up.

Food booth coordinators: Please read Fall Festival 2018 as well.

Setting Up:

Setting up starts at 15:00.

Students will help to move the tables to the gym and you can start setting up your booth.

Please cover the tables with the paper (from the big rolls for crafts/art), so that they do not get damaged.

If you are assigned to a booth, please work on yours first and then help the others.

Cleaning Up:

PTA will provide trash bags and cloth for cleaning. After the event (or can be earlier, if you sell out. However, please do not unfold the tables before 14:00 for safety reasons), please clean the tables and the area around.

Parking:

On the 3rd, if you are coming to school by car, please consider car pooling if possible.

Please park at Takadai Elementary School next door, map can be found in the e-mail sent a couple of days ago or in Hex.

It will be on the right side, as you face to the main entrance of Takadai Elementary School, NOT left side as we usually do (there will be someone guiding).


If you have any questions or problem, please feel free to contact me anytime.


Again, I appreciate your kindness and support!

It was nice to see so many of you at BBQ this afternoon.

Thank you for coming to share the fun and for helping to prepare, cook and clean up. Without your time and support, it would not have been possible. I hope you all enjoyed as much as I did!


Also, thank you for those who took a moment to sign up for Fall Festival. It is on November 3rd but will come sooner than we think, with Fall Break in between. More details will come shortly and we are planning to have Fall Festival meeting on the September 26th, at 15:45. Fall Festival is a big event, but with the support we had this time for the BBQ, I am confident that it will be fun and successful one!

I appreciate your support for the community and PTA.

Best regards, Megumi

PTA will be hosting BBQ after Open House on September 17th after school, from 15:30. Everyone is welcome so please join us!

If the weather is fine, we will be in the backyard, but in case of rain, we will have it at the entrance.

PTA will provide food, drinks, plate and cutlery.

If you have something you would like to share, please feel free!

If you have signed up for BBQ volunteer, you will be contacted this afternoon by e-mail.

Let’s be environment friendly!

It is certainly not an obligation, but if you would like to bring your own reusable plates, cup and cutlery and a bag to bring them home after use that would a big help both for nature and PTA!
