WDLF PACK PRESS PARK SCHOOL CAMPUS - 400 W. TOWNLINE ROAD - ROUND LAKE, IL 60073

The best gift is today. That’s why it’s called the present. It’s December, Park Campus families! DEEECEMBER! This is the month when the kids stay home for 2 weeks. When snow falls. When we celebrate family, festivals of lights and when it feels better to give than to receive. If only the weather helped us feel this winter season upon us. Raise your hand if you still haven’t packed your flip flops away? (We are raising our hands). The PTO loves giving to our students and families. Did you notice the recent “gift” that came home from us? Ah, yes, at long last...a school directory! No more sending notes in with your child to get a play date set up or sending in piles of thank you cards or birthday invitations with your child to hand out at school! You can look up your child’s classmates’ contact information in an easy reference that the PTO put together for you. Our “Buy a Pie, Give a Pie” program coordinated by Market Day was a success. We were able to donate 50 pies to the PLAN Food Pantry in Round Lake Beach. Thank you for helping us achieve the generous donation. The Mitten Tree is now standing tall in the office. Please take a moment to visit the tree, and help make a contribution to a Park Campus family in need. Wait, there’s a couple more ways for you to still give to your PTO and school this holiday season....let’s show our appreciation for our TEACHERS.Visit teacherlists.org to see what your child’s teacher wants or needs this year and help them check things off their classroom lists! Lastly, the PTO needs help gathering donations for the raffle and silent auction at our annual Valentine’s Dinner Dance held in February. If you have anything you can contribute from a sporting event ticket to a new toy, or if you own a business and can donate your services or goods...it will all be very much appreciated. Thank you to everyone who volunteered at or attended the Holiday Shop and Polar Express Night! It was a great way to kick of the holiday season. Happy Holidays from your 2012-2013 PTO Board Members!
