PTA Newsletter for Week of 10/29

John Gomes Elementary

Dear Gomes Parents,

The 11th Annual Gomes Walkathon is coming up on November 9th, and this year we are going to have several days of events for students starting tomorrow, with the help of Boosterthon. Your students will be bringing home a pledgebook (crown) tomorrow which will give you instructions on how to register and to collect pledges for each lap that they run. We are raising money for campus improvement and other programs at Gomes.

Upcoming Events and Deadlines

Last Chance for Classes to Get the Scoop!
October 31st is the last day to help your child's class get an ice cream party for the most PTA memberships! All you have to do is Join Gomes PTA! You can still join after Oct 31 but it won't count for the ice cream party. PTA membership not only benefits your students, there are also perks for members! Memberships are good for one year.

Gomes Rock Garden Assembly
Your students have each painted a rock to be placed in the Gomes Rock Garden, which will be unveiled on Wednesday for the entire school. Come by at 9:00am on Nov 1st and join the assembly near the flagpole!

Volunteers Needed!
Mrs. Warey needs volunteers in the Science Lab. Please check the sign up sheet and help out if you can.

Health and Safety Corner

  • This week is Halloween and some classes will be celebrating in the classroom. Please consider allergy-friendly treats if there are students in your class who have allergies (ask your child's teacher if there are). Non-food treats are an even better option.
  • Please read the important Lice Advisory on page 9 and 10 of the October parent bulletin for information regarding school policy on lice and how to treat it.

Have a happy and safe Halloween!
