GARDEN CLUB: If your child is enjoying PTA's GARDEN CLUB generously run by Sarah Sherwood (or you are even THINKING ABOUT sending your child there every now and then), you need to SIGN UP ON THE SOCIAL GROUP called "GARDEN CLUB" on Konstella to keep up to date with any potential changes in schedule.

LOST AND FOUND: When you come for the Book Fair next week (or this Friday to help set up between 2-4pm), please check out our ever expanding LOST AND FOUND! Your child's jacket might be in that pile, since it is SO BIG!

FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES: If you are interested in sharing social events with your fellow CP families, please JOIN this COMMITTEE on Konstella and feel free to post the wonderful events you know about! Anyone can join this committee who is interesting in hearing about or sharing such events.

To join Social Groups or Committees on Konstella, just scroll down the left side of your Konstella web page and choose either Social Groups or Committees , or use the "Directory" at the bottom of the phone app to Browse both Social Groups and Committees.

And remember, you can support your PTA by purchasing Panda Parties at My School Central PTA Webstore and support your PTA by JOINING at the same link.

 You can support FMS in creating their largest fundraising event of the year: FMS GALA!  Please contact Tammy Shueh, Lena Yin, Cathy Szeto or Nhi Hyunh on Konstella if you are available to help.

YEARBOOKS reminder if you haven't yet purchased one:

We will be using Treering again for our yearbooks.  They will cost $18.99 this year for a softcover.  (Last year,  you could get a 5% discount after tax if you ordered by Nov 30th. ) Treering allows parents to customize their student’s yearbook with a two-page layout (included in the price).  Parents can also opt to add more pages at $1  for every two-pages.

a) If you have an account from last year, click here to order.

b) If you don't have a treering account, click here to sign up.

Filling in your pictures during the year makes it easier to customize your personal pages before next May when they are due.

In this month of thanks, thank you for creating such a supportive CP community.
