Here's this week's update:
Annual Giving continues. Thank you to everyone that has already contributed this year. If you haven't already, please consider participating in our annual giving campaign. Your donation supports startup costs for all PTO sponsored programs and event planning fees that are due at the beginning of the school year. Art Corps, field trips, teacher classroom grants, Teacher Appreciation Week, science and technology supplies, Dia de los Muertos Festival, and so much more are all paid for with PTO fundraising. For more information and an update about where we are in the campaign, please see the Konstella announcement.
PTO General Meeting. Please join us on Wednesday 6:00pm in the Longfellow auditorium for the first general PTO meeting of Los Compadres de Escuela Longfellow. At this first meeting of the year, we will be voting on unfilled Board positions and approving the PTO Budget. See full details about the meeting, including the agenda and list of unfilled Board positions in the Konstella announcement. Children are welcome. Complimentary childcare will be provided by YMCA Character Builders and children will be offered dinner of pizza and fruit.
Picture Day is Thursday (TK-3) and Friday (4-8) this week. Please note that if your child is unable to be at school for their picture day there is a make-up day on October 19. Also, this year there will not be pictures for volunteers.
ART CORPS Orientation. Please consider attending the orientation on Wednesday at 9:30 am in the auditorium if you are interested in helping out with ART CORPS in your child's classroom. If you can't attend the meeting, but are interested in volunteering, consider joining the ART CORPS committees on Konstella (general and grade level) where updates will be posted.
