April 2018

The birds are singing every morning and the sun is warmer. Despite some lingering snow piles, Spring is here!!

Our Comedy Night was a great success – thank you to all who attended and bid on our silent auction items. We shared a lot of laughs all while raising money for our general PTO account that funds teacher stipends, amazing enrichment programs, and so much more. Special thanks to Jenn Vant and her entire team for coordinating yet another seamless event!

As you might remember, the Comedy Night committee decided to exclude the Teacher Gifts of Time from the silent auction at the event and so the PTO hosted its first ever online auction last week! THANK YOU for helping to make this a HUGE SUCCESS!!! We are so excited about this more modern and equitable way to involve all parents who want to bid on these experiences.  It was very fun and exciting to watch the bidding unfold over the week. Special thanks to Stacey DiCarlo, Michelle White and Amy Darling for their tireless work on this new event!

Looking further ahead toward the end of the year, we will again have our Mother’s Day Planter Sale in May as well as our biennial event, Little Laps - Ninja Warrior Edition, coinciding with Field Day. Watch your inboxes and your kids’ backpacks for more information soon!

Lastly, it's not too early to think about joining the PTO next school year in a leadership role. Please reach out to me if you are interested. There is a lot of opportunity to help out in big and small ways.
