PTO Updates -- April 4, 2013

Hello Marshall Families-

We had a good PTO meeting last night [Wednesday, April 3, 2013]. Thank you to those that came to the meeting! Here are a few things we wanted to pass along-

·         Random Acts of Kindness- The Episcopal Church of the Epiphany’s 8th Annual Event is May 5th . Marshall Elementary has been a recipient of money raised from this event for many years. We always like to make sure a group from Marshall attends. There are wonderful auction items! And, on that note they are still looking for great auction items- if you have a business that could possibly donate an item or service please let me know & I’ll get you in touch with the right person. Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in buying a ticket as well. If we buy tickets before April 14th the cost is $40. Thank you!

·         Spring Carnival- Wednesday, April 24th from 6-7pm
o   Volunteers needed to sell tickets to families & sell food. Please let me know ASAP if you might be available.

·         Teacher Appreciation Breakfast-May 2nd 7:30am
o   Please respond if you would like to bring something.  We can arrange for drop offs the day before or you can bring items the morning of.

·         DODGEBALL-check out the website!
o   A FUN fundraiser for all of our kids at Marshall! SUNDAY, MAY 19TH NOON

o   duties include: cook & serve hot dogs at WalMart to raise money to buy supplies for teachers.
o   If your child is a part of a kids group (i.e. dance, gymnastics, girl/boy scouts)-please mention if handing out flyers would be something the group could do.
