October 2021 – The Round-Up

Hello Wood families!

I hope everyone is off to a great start this school year. On behalf of the PTA, I would like to thank you for all the ways in which you participated in the Mum sale. The fundraiser raised almost $4,000 dollars. At our PTA meeting, we voted to donate $1,500 of that directly back to the school so that Ms. Slatcoff is able to purchase a lightbox, which will be used in a classroom.

We continue to appreciate your support. There are plenty of opportunities including our upcoming Book Fair beginning the week of November 8th. And as always, please join the PTA or donate to our teacher appreciation fund. You can do so by clicking on this link. Want to help coordinate an event, volunteer at an activity, or participate in some other way? The PTA is always looking for extra hands to help out. You can always contact me for specific ways to get involved: dingle.michelle.a@gmail.com

Anda hat tip to all of the volunteers and coordinators who made everything go smoothly and seamlessly.
