I hope you all are looking forward to a long weekend! Please check out some important updates below before we leave for a fun fall weekend :)
Here is a letter from our room parent, Alyson Hughes!
To the Parents of Ms. Greathouse’s 5th Grade Class:
Hello! I hope everyone is getting adjusted to the new school year and the children are enjoying school! As the Lead Room parent for our class, I wanted to introduce myself and let everyone know about the school year. My name is Alyson Hughes, and my child’s name is Abbie Hughes.
Ms. Greathouse has planned many wonderful activities and projects for our class. These activities are only possible with the help of donations received from classroom parents.That is why we are asking for one voluntary donation for the classroom fund and the basket fund combined. Whatever donation you can make is greatly appreciated. The recommended amount is $35 ($20 for classroom donation fund and $15 for the raffle basket). If you would like to make an additional donation, please include a note that states if you want the additional funds added to the class fund or the raffle basket fund. If no indication is given, additional funds automatically go to the raffle basket fund.
The classroom donation fund is used to support the following PTA coordinated items:
*Note that money donated to the classroom fund is not used toward winter or year-endteacher gifts. Teacher gifts will be up to the discretion of each individual family.
Please send your donation into school with your student by Wednesday, October 3, 2016. If you are sending a check, make checks payable to: Alyson Hughes. Feel free to contact Ms. Greathouse or myself with any questions. We are all looking forward to a great year and thank you in advance for all of your time and financial support.
