Evergreen Academy PTO News Dear Evergreen families, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. I think we’re all hoping that adage holds true this year! Before long it will be time to put away the winter coats and snow boots and break out the rain jackets and galoshes. Have you seen grass yet? It’s a sure sign of spring, one of the busiest times of the school year for the PTO… The dance was a wonderful success, and we thank everyone for coming out! We hope you had a great time, and can’t wait to do it again next year! As some of you know, there has been a delay with pictures, but we are working on it and will get them to you as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience! Our very first Scholastic Book Fair will be held the week of conferences, March 24th-27th. Your child will have a chance to create a wish list, and then buy books later in the week. You will have a chance to purchase books between 3:45-6pm. We will be holding an online book fair concurrently, so you or your family can buy books for your child and earn free books for our school from the comfort of home! Please come check it out! Donation forms went home a few weeks ago for our silent auction. If you plan on donating an item (handmade items, gift card to your business, etc), please let the PTO know as soon as possible. Thank you! Did you know that children are welcome at PTO meetings? Many of us bring ours! There are blocks to play with, and we will provide coloring pages and crayons. Instead of rushing home on meeting days, come stay a while! We would LOVE to see you!
Do you have ideas, questions or concerns about the PTO or its activities? Please JOIN US for our next meeting! It will be held Wed, March 19th at 3:45pm. We would love your input! We also have PTO Board positions available, so if you are interested in a Board position, please let us know! The more parent involvement, the better our little school can be! If you can’t attend but would still like to know what was discussed, check out the Meeting Minutes posted on the PTO Facebook page. Thank you to everyone who attended our February meeting! Please remember to clip and save Box Tops for Education, Campbell’s labels and Coke Rewards caps. You can also sign up at cokerewards.com, enter the Coke Rewards codes and donate them to Evergreen Academy’s account. We will also be happy to do the work of inputting codes for you. You can send any of these to school with your child. We’re close to $375 this year from Box Tops alone! That’s amazing! Have you discovered some of your child’s uniforms no longer fit? Please consider donating them to the PTO! We will be selling gently used uniforms at next year’s back-to-school open house. Are you in need of gently used uniforms? Please contact the PTO for availability and pricing. May your day be touched by a bit of Irish luck, brightened by a song in your heart, and warmed by the smiles of the people you love. On Facebook?
