When you come for the Celebration of Learning tomorrow, be sure to stop by the PTA table! You will have the chance to sign up for membership for $10, and we will have available car magnets ($5) and mugs ($15). We will also have information available about our upcoming pancake breakfast, and you can sign up to volunteer.
As an additional fundraiser, we will be selling Zeke’s coffee! Enjoy for $2 in a disposable cup, or $1 in your reusable cup. If you buy a PTA mug, the coffee is on the house!
The PTA will be hosting the Playground Design Charrette on Wednesday, September 5, from 6:00 PM-8:00 PM in the multi-purpose room.
The Playground designer, Nancy Striniste of Early Space, will lead an interactive session with the goal of getting as much community input on the design of the new playground as possible. Participants will brainstorm together and develop goals for the space. The charrette will include opportunities for participants to see a variety of outdoor learning spaces, to learn about current research on the value of time outdoors, to explore their own childhood memories, and to come to consensus on their goals for the space. The charrette will also include time to talk with teachers about ways to include students in the project through as many phases of design and build as possible.
This meeting will be a bit longer than our regular PTA meetings but we’ll have food and childcare will be available ($5 suggested donation).
