Please help the PTO raise money for a new outdoor sign for the school. The sign will allow us to post upcoming events and make special announcements for the community to see. Here’s how you can help: Plan on eating dinner at the 99 Restaurant on Tuesday, February 17, between the hours of 5:00 and 8:00 p.m. At that time, present the voucher that is being sent home today with the students, and 15% of your check amount will go toward the purchase of the new outdoor sign. Additional vouchers will be available here at the school and that evening at the restaurant. The 99 Restaurant is located at 154 Laconia Road in Tilton (next to the Home Depot).
Jump Rope for Heart information has been sent home. This event will take place during your children’s physical education classes on February 16 and February 17. All students will have an opportunity to jump and to raise funds for the American Heart Association. If your child will be participating in the fundraising, donations must be put in the special envelopes and returned to us no later than Wednesday, March 4. This is the fourth year that we’ve taken part in this event. Last year the students raised $1,470, and this year’s goal is to raise $1,500.
Thank you to the Boxer Family for putting up the February Birthdays bulletin board. If you haven’t had a chance to see it, the bulletin board is very festive and is in keeping with Valentine’s Day celebrations. Would you be interested in volunteering to put up the birthday bulletin board in one of the coming months? We have plenty of paper and trim on hand. If you’re interested, please give the office a call at 744-3221.
Pants: One of our students is missing a black pair of snow pants (no bib). They’re new and have the child’s name written in them. Perchance one of the other students had a similar pair and picked up the wrong ones (lots of black snow pants around), would you please double check to make sure your child has the correct pair? Please give us a call if you do come across them. Thank you for checking.
Due to various schools having their February vacations next week, and us having ours the following week, the next day (and last day) for Winter Activities will be on Thursday, March 5.
