Our Spring Book Fair is next week. It is a great time to get a jump on getting some books for summer while supporting our school! Student Preview day will be on Monday. Sales will be ongoing throughout the week with Family Night on Thursday. There are still a few volunteer slots available and we'd love to have some help from our amazing community! Please sign up using the link listed below if you are interested:
On Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, from 9:00 – 11;30a.m., our Green Initiatives team has scheduled work projects to Beautify Rowe Lane. We could use your muscle and hustle to help install some landscaping additions. Also, as a service to the neighborhood and as good citizens of planet Earth, we will collect your hard-to-recycle items so that they can be disposed of or recycled properly (e.g., paint or batteries, but extensive list to come).
As a reminder, all of our fundraising through the end of the year will be supporting our efforts to fund the replacement our aging playground equipment. Our annual Penny Wars will be taking place the week of April 24th! For those of you new to the Rocket Community, each classroom will have their own jar and will try to raise the most pennies. You can sabotage other classes by placing other types of coins or dollar bills in their jars. This is a popular fundraiser among the students and they really become vested in having their class win!
We will be having our first community yard sale on Saturday April 29th. Start saving those Spring Cleaning items that your family doesn't need any more! We will send out more information within the next few weeks regarding how and where to drop off donations. This event will be open to the community from 8:00am until noon, so please invite your friends and neighbors to stop by!
Last but not least, ELECTIONS ARE COMING!!! We cannot be the PTO that we are without your help! We will be having elections for 2017-2018 Board and Committee Chairs at our May meeting. If you are interested in becoming an integral part of the PTO, please drop us a line and let us know!
