Weekly News

This is where you can find a copy of the weekly email sent from the PTO to all room parents.  The email should be forwarded to you by your room parent, but we’ll house a copy here just in case.


For the week of Oct 5-9

PTO Info:

Garden Help Needed – Can anyone help us fix the garden’s watering system?  It’s simple work and we have all the necessary parts.  Basic knowledge of watering systems would be helpful but not necessary.  Just needs extra hands at this point.  Please contact Staci at stacibrooks58@gmail.com to help.
ELLP Volunteers Needed – TK, Kinder, 1st and 2nd graders are now participating in “ELLP (Early Language & Literacy Plan) Academies” in their classrooms on Tues, Wed and Fri; the kids are grouped based on their language arts ability level so that they can receive intervention as needed and more targeted instruction.  Parents volunteers are needed to help with academies.  Volunteers will receive special training and will need to commit to being in the classroom each week:  2nd grade at 8:15-9:00, 1st grade 9:05-9:50 and TK/Kinder 10:45-11:15.  If you’re an approved volunteer and available to help, please contact Claire at claireborsheim@yahoo.com.
Halloween Candy Drive – Please be sure to drop any unwanted Halloween candy in our collection bin in the office by Tues, 11/6.  Thanks to all who have donated so far!
After School Enrichment – A new session begins on 11/13!  To see our schedule of classes for both PA and USTA go to www.calabashpto.org/news/after-school-enrichment-session-2-begins-11-13/

Food Drive – Our annual Food Drive will run from 11/13 – 11/16.  A flyer will be sent shortly including the food bank’s greatest needs.  We’ll have a collection bin next week in front of the office.
Mrs. Fields’ Cookie Dough Fundraiser – Be sure to get your orders in by Friday, 11/16 as we will not be able to accept any late orders.  Any questions about this fundraiser can be directed to Arlene Hong at arlene.hong@gmail.com.  Remember we earn 42% of all sales!  An easy and delicious fundraiser!

Mother Son Dance – We have over 100 confirmed guests for our dance this Friday!  Any questions about the event should be directed to Marilyn at marebear14369@yahoo.com.
Sylvan Shop Night – Save the date!  Sylvan Learning Center in Woodland Hills will be offering a Shop Night on 12/1.  Parents can drop off their kiddos from 5:00-8:30pm for $30 (including dinner) and get their holiday shopping done!  Kids will participate in a variety of fun activities including robotics, constructing bridges, and more!  Space will be limited.  Details to come shortly.
