I have the final payment for DC forms ready to go home Monday. The total cost for chaperones is $235 and students is $221. Student cost is reduced due to the money raised from the Cake Walk at the Valentine's Dinner Dance. Thanks to those who contributed by bringing desserts or buying tickets.
The only things going on this week look to be book fair and first in fitness. We will be going to the book fair as a class on Monday to preview and Tuesday to purchase, both from 1:10-1:30. First in Fitness is also scheduled for Tuesday morning.
I have added some new things to the calendar for track out and next quarter pertaining to middle school things. West Millbrook is offering their student orientation while we are tracked out, April 16 9:45-11:45, and a parent orientation that night 6:00-7:15. Durant is scheduled for the Thursday we are in DC, I don't know if that will change or not. I have not seen any dates for Wakefield yet. Students have already talked to Mrs. Cooper about middle school, electives, lockers, etc. We do not know when the elective forms will be available, but have been told that they are expected to be late this year. Hopefully we see them before track out. I will let you know more as I get more information.
Last call or any 5th grade parents who would like to place a personalized ad in the yearbook. Forms and checks need to be turned in by the March 13th to one of our front office staff. If you need a form go to the PTA website at puepta.com under the 5th grade information tab.
Meg Stech, one of our 3rd grade teachers is raising money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by participating in a 100 mile bicycle ride. Her goal is to raise $1,900 to donate to the society to help them fund research for a cure. If you are interested in helping her out go to her website to find out more.
I think that covers it for this week. If anything else comes up I will let you know. Have good one!
