MESSAGE FROM THE PTA
PTA STORAGE NEEDED
The PTA is losing its storage container (located on the blacktop by the basketball courts) to free up precious space on the blacktop, so we have to empty it out very soon. Much of what we keep in there is Carnival booths and amazing Haunted House props. We need to find a new home for these things or let them go. Because so many of these items are part of what makes our Carnival unique, we're hoping that someone in the Otis community has some spare garage and/or storage space we can use for free or very low cost. If you have space - or know of space that is available - please let PTA President, Beth Aney, know right away ( beth.f.aney@gmail.com ). We would love to find these pieces a home after Carnival on 10/28. 

MINI-GRANT APPLICATIONS NOW AVAILABLE
The PTA is offering mini-grants to students, parents, teachers and staff 
for specific purchases, projects or activities that will benefit or enrich the Otis community. Grants will be awarded in amounts between $20-$500.  The deadline to submit an application is November 30, 2016.  Click HERE for the application form and instructions.
