PTA Announcements   

Wine For Education
April 12th is the SchoolForce Auction event, and one feature (back by popular demand) is the Wine Wall.  If you're able to donate a bottle or case of wine (minimum $20/bottle), please bring it to Garth Frasier this week. THANK YOU!!  You can support our school by supporting SchoolForce.
SchoolForce Database Transition
SchoolForce will be transitioning to a new donor database system in April. We will share details as the transition date gets closer, so please read your email from SchoolForce, as important info will be provided that allows donors to create their own login accounts, update contact information and track donation history.

Don't Miss Out On Getting A Yearbook 
...and Time To Work On Your Custom Pages!
Remember to get this book full of memories of your child’s year at RSES! Order before the end of April so that your yearbook will be delivered directly to your student’s classroom rather than pay shipping on late orders.  If you order now, you still have three weeks to design your optional custom pages just for your student. The final deadline to order and to design your custom pages will be Tuesday, April 30th.  Once you have completed your custom pages, please remember to TURN ON THE PRINT READY BUTTON.  If not, your book will be printed without any custom pages.
Purchase at with passcode 101282597210657 and receive 2 optional custom pages.  For questions, please contact Christine Wong. (And, if you're interested in helping with this important school task next year, please indicate your interest now!) 

Family Dinner Dance April 26th
Put on your wildest Hawaiian wear and don't forget your leis & shades! Join RSES for a Hawaiian themed family dance party with dinner, dancing, photo booth and more! It will be a night to remember!  This is a PTA sponsored event and the entry cost covers the event expenses (food, drinks, photo booth, etc.)  We hope to see you all there, and that you'll volunteer to help out!! Click here for additional details and to purchase tickets for this fun family event!
