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 Jan 14-18

PTO Info:
Jaxx Registration – Auditions will continue this Friday, 1/18 for Jaxx’s spring production of INTO THE WOODS.  To register, go to jaxxtheatricals.org/calabash/production/1253/.
Strike Support on 1/14 – Whether you send your child to school during the strike or not, we hope you’ll join us as we picket with our teachers daily on Eugene Street from 7-9AM and 2-3PM.  We want to show support of our teachers and their demand for fair pay, smaller class sizes, more resources (nurses, counselors, librarians, etc), and less testing.  A big thanks to everyone who signed up to bring coffee, donuts and more for our teachers tomorrow morning.  The updated list can be found here:  www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a4ba8ab2ca5f94-picket1

Y.E.S. Drawing – The drawing for a free PA enrichment class in our upcoming session will be held this week using an online number generator.  All families who donated at least $100 to the Y.E.S. Fund are automatically included in the raffle.  The winner will be contacted via email and announced in the weekly e-blast.
Mother Daughter Event – Our annual Mother Daughter event will be held at Skateland in Northridge on Friday, 2/1.  Join us as we blast back to the 80’s for this fun mommy-daughter event.  Order form available here:  www.calabashpto.org/news/mother-daughter-skating-friday-2-1/.  RSVP by 1/25.
Mother Son Event – Our rescheduled Mother-Son Medieval Dance will be held on Friday, 2/8.  Ticket order form can be found here:  www.calabashpto.org/news/mother-son-dance-friday-2-8/ and RSVP is due by 1/30.  If you already purchased tickets for the original date, you are already on our attendee list.  This order form is just for any new families who may now be able to attend.
Spring Online Auction – We’re seeking donations for our upcoming online auction in March.  If you’re a business owner and can donate a gift certificate, or have access to industry items or events (Disney tickets, magic castle access, tapings, green room access, autographed memorabilia, etc), please contact Claire at claireborsheim@yahoo.com.  We’re happy to provide a donation receipt for tax purposes.  Also in need of a few parents who can help us solicit (all done online); please contact us ASAP to help!
PTO Meeting – Our next monthly membership meeting will be held on Mon, 1/28 at 8AM in the staff lounge.  We’ll be discussing our annual PTO Board election as well as upcoming events, fundraisers, etc.  We hope to see you there!
Screenagers – Given the impact of the teachers’ strike, the Calabash administration has asked that we reschedule our 1/17 screening.  A new date will be communicated tomorrow.
Dates to Remember:
Mon, 1/14 – Teachers’ Strike Begins
Fri, 1/18 – Jaxx Auditions
