September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. If you would like to support and help raise money for those children in need of pediatric cancer services, ASICS, a high-end sports apparel company is hosting a fund raiser. During the month of September, ASICS is donating $10 for every pair of specially designed shoes sold, $2 for every apparel item and $1 for every accessory purchase. Please check out their website. You can purchase something special for the runner in your life while supporting a great cause.
Upcoming Events include:
October 2 is our first PTO meeting of the 2014-2015 school year. There is no better way to know what is going on at school than joining the PTO. Membership supports a strong partnership between parents and teachers, allows you to share ideas, and put your hobbies and skills to good use. The PTO works to support needed programs that enhance studentlearning. Please plan on joining us as we make decisions to support the school.
October 8 is picture day. Picture Day is a great, inexpensive way to get professional quality pictures of your child and create memories.
October 17 Upper elementary field trip exploring colonial living at the Alamance Battlefield.
October 19 is the Handmade Parade in downtown Hillsborough. Once again, the elementary classrooms will be parading through the streets along with dozens of other school groups, and other local organizations. The Handmade Parade is a walking celebration of theatrical performance with giant puppets invading the streets of Hillsborough. The parade begins at 2:30 on October 19.
We will need to get together for a planning session this week to discuss our participation in the parade and evaluate the condition of our giant green fish. Please email me if you plan on participating in the parade and which night/time would work best for our initial meeting.
OCIM Year Long Service Project
The upper elementary class is collecting canned goods in September. We will be bringing our donation to OCIM this week. Please consider helping local families by picking up some extra food this weekend when you are doing your weekly shopping for your own family.
