Thank you very much, Sally Bugg, for leading the PTO as Chair for three very productive years!!!! We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated PTO team working so hard to support and improve TES. 

 

We’re BATTY for Box Tops! 

 

Between October 1st and October 23rd, bring cleanly cut box tops to your classroom for our GHOULISHLY GREAT Boxtops Classroom Contest!  AND classes that COUNT/place all of their box tops into LABELLED ZIPLOC  SANDWICH BAGS of 50 will get 100 extra points!  (Any boxtops remaining that don’t add up to 50 can be placed in a Ziploc baggies with the number written on the bag, i.e.  “32”, “16” etc) 

 

Box tops that are not cleanly cut along the dotted lines will not count for your classroom.  Expiration date must be visible and cannot have passed.

 

Winning classroom will have a special Halloween treat on Friday, October 30th!  Yum!

 

 

 

2014/2015 - Old PTO News

Thanks to all the donated and attended the Library Refresh Auction!  We raised over $2500!

Field Day was great fun! Thanks for an Awesome Ice Cream Social! Thanks Kami Pepe for cooridinating the event. The end of year lunch for Faculty and Staff was enjoyed by all. Thank you Melissa Thaxton for leading it and for all that brought in food, supplies etc. 

The Science Fair was fantastic!  Thanks to Angie Spickard and Rebecca Yukica for spearheading the event and all that participated in all ways!

 

Box Tops!  And the winner is.......Congratulations to the Kindergartners in Mrs. Rogers class for bringing in 1285 box tops!  They enjoyed a pizza party to celebrate!  We are VERY PROUD of our students and families for making such a tremendous effort, coming in only ~150 box tops short of our $1000 goal by the March 2nd deadline!  (We ran into some unanticipated hurdles with the combination of February break AND the recycling center being closed right after our big request to the community; we have since reached our goal, but it will go toward the Fall check.)

 

Thanks again for all of your efforts.  Every box top = $.10 for our school!!

 

The Town Meeting Breakfast  was fun! Thansk Lexi Burroughs, Nancy Vaughan and Stephanie Daniels for helping that morning!
