PTA Post: Providing Activities, Programs, and Supplies for our Community
PTA ACTIVITY: Grandparents & Special Friends' Day is Friday, November 21. This purpose of this event is to invite extended family members and friends into the school to see their Stephenson student. It is also an opportunity for us to thank them for supporting our school.
Look for the invitation and registration form in your child's backpack. To reduce waiting times at the photo booth (completely FREE thanks to the PTA) and Scholastic Book Fair, there are three sessions based on grade level: Click on Grade Level for link to Form.
4th-5th: Check-in at 11:45 for event at 12:00-12:25
2nd-3rd: Check-in at 12:15 for event at 12:30-12:55
K-1st: Check-in at 12:45 for event at 1:00-1:25
(Guests attending multiple sessions only check in once, returning to gym for subsequent event start-times.)
RSVP with the Registration Form, even if your child will not have a guest, by returning to the Classroom Teacher. Give the Invitation to the Grandparent/Special Friend so that they have instructions and times.
PTA ACTIVITY: Scholastic Book Fair
PTA PROGRAM: Run for the Arts
Coordinators, Cindy Thomas (Grade 4 Parent) and Krista Folmer (Grade 5 Parent & one at Jackson), show off the total funds raised for Run for the Arts this year: $11, 490.50! Thank you Stephenson Community!
PTA PROGRAM: Art Literacy
The Art Lit program is in full swing and now in Room 158. The unit's focus is on patterns. The first lesson uses latex gloves for the activity. If your child has an allergy or sensitivity to latex, inform Heather and the classroom teacher so that an alternative can be provided.
Wishing you all the best,
