Restaurant Night at Parry’s Pizza: Aug 19th/5PM.  EAT OUT AND RAISE MONEY FOR REDSTONE!

Every month, the Redstone PTO will coordinate a fundraiser night at a local restaurant. When you dine in or order to-go and mention Redstone and bring in the flyer (coming in Friday Folders), a portion of your sales will come back to Redstone!! Please join us for our 1st Restaurant Night at PARRY'S PIZZERIA & BAR on Monday, August 19th from 5-9p located at 9567 S. University Blvd (303) 683-0600.  Be sure to enter for a chance to win a gift card from Parry’s when you’re there!  What a great way to kick off the school year, spend time with other Redstone families and enjoy a yummy meal! Can't wait to see you there! 

 
Redstone Calendars: Redstone calendars will be for sale at Back to School Night or you can email redstonepto@gmail.com to purchase yours!  Large desk calendar- $12, wall calendar- $10, booklet calendar- $10
 
PTO Social: Thank you to Laura Beuther for organizing our PTO Social and to all the parents who volunteered to help make the event a success!
 
VIP Parking: Please DO NOT park in the two spaces marked as VIP.  The families whose names are on the plaque each month purchased those spots at our annual auction and should be the only ones parking there at all times.  Thank you.
 
Rockin’ Run: Thank you parents for submitting T-Shirt sizes for your students.  It makes our job easier!  The Rockin’ Run is on September 13th.  This is a fun activity for the students as well as our big fundraiser for our school.  Your students will learn more about it in the kick off assembly on Aug 23rd.
 
*New Changes* Box Tops for Education: NO MORE CLIPPING!!!  Just scan your receipt.  See how at BTFE.COM.  The Box Tops for Education team has worked hard to build a NEW-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app, available now.  The new app features state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online.  BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE NEW APP OR UPDATE YOUR EXISTING APP!  If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, make sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing participating products.  Thanks for helping our school get what it needs!  We are working towards a school goal of $1,000, and if we  reach it every student will get a reward!  Check out our progress outside the school gym!
 
Sponsorship Request:  As we kick off this school year, the PTO is working feverishly behind the scenes to have another AMAZING school year.  Many of the wonderful things that the PTO is able to accomplish is due to the generosity of sponsors and donors in our own Redstone family and local community.  We are currently looking for sponsors from businesses to partner with the PTO in the upcoming School wide Rockin' Run Fun Run. Businesses will be highlighted in Redstone's various communications and will have a visual presence throughout the school/events.  If you own a business or know someone who might be interested, please contact the PTO Sponsorship Coordinator, Kelly Katsnelson at kkatsnelson@gmail.com.
 
Spirit Rock: Our Redstone Spirit Rock is now available for reservations!  What a fun way to spread kind words, thank a teacher, celebrate special occasions, and more.  Reservations can be made at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f4fa4ab2ca7fb6-redstone2?fbclid=IwAR2vBwEL4cOeqAekdZD36gPNwRXgNx_2on49YiTVdtP9MsaobOW6Gdic
