Happy mid-to-late April, everyone!
Couple of quick-ish announcements for this week, all delivered with the usual ratio of sentence-fragments, courtesy of yours truly!
1. STEAM night! Tuesday April 25th! 6pm! You guys are familiar with the STEAM lab, right? The huge project from last year, the tile fundraiser, the collaboration with the school to design and build the lab? Welp, it’s time to come check the results of that hard work. Bring the kids and let THEM explore and teach YOU how they use this innovative space!
2. PTA Meeting for the same night? CANCELLED. Let’s use this night to celebrate the STEAM lab and, I THINK, the book fair is running at the same time in the library. I realize we may all have to short-sell our Vocelli’s pizza stock as a result of this cancellation, but you’ve got lots of warning to make any necessary trades.
3. Teacher thank-you cards. My entire den is COVERED with these things, and I’ll be pulling glitter out of my beard for decades. DECADES!!! The due date was 4/1/17, which of course means I’ll be collecting them through the end of this week :) Please send them in to my mailbox in the school office, via your child or her/his classroom teacher.
4. $$ for specialists. Likewise as per #3 above, in all respects (sans glitter).
5. Might your child be interested in individualized art lessons as a private, after-school activity? One of my favorite Floris parents has expressed an interest in offering private art lessons/enrichment on an individual or small-group basis as an after-school and probably summer activity. I’ve heard about some spectacular project ideas for elementary-school children of any grade. If you’re interested in more information, please contact me directly and I’ll do my best to facilitate. firstname.lastname@example.org
6. Last but not least — Elections for the PTA board will be happening at the May PTA meeting. If you’d like to throw your name in the hat, please contact the lovely Ms. Kathy Webb at email@example.com . Kathy’s heading up the nominating committee and is working hard to make sure your next PTA president will have better grammar than that tall guy who’s been nothing but trouble for the last two years! All comers are welcome, all ideas are welcome — make yourselves heard!
