Hello families. It was a beautiful day today for our Leopold grounds cleanup! Many, many thanks to the families who came out to rake, trim, pull weeds, and more. If you drive by school tomorrow, you'll not only see an improved school grounds, but also about 80 bags of leaves we raked and stuffed! Thanks to Todd Hanson for his efforts in organizing the cleanup.
If yard work wasn't your thing, perhaps you can help us out by providing baked goods or money for our election day bake sale. We will be hosting a bake sale in the Leopold lobby as our school is a polling place. If you can make something for the sale, please email Lisa Shebesta at firstname.lastname@example.org so that she has an idea of how much to expect. Items can be dropped off Monday or Tuesday morning at the office. If you can prepare the items in serving size portions, that would be best. If baking is not your thing, you can also make a monetary donation. Put the amount you would like to donate in an envelope marked "PFO bake sale" and turn it in to your child's teacher. We will use that money to purchase additional baked goods for the sale. We could also use a few more volunteers for the bake sale. If you can help sell these wonderful baked goods for a bit, please sign up here.
Box Top Update
Our boxtop coordinator, Jessica Kopish, has cut, counted and submitted BoxTops for the first deadline this fall. Jessica submitted 10,044 boxtops for Leopold! This is an outstanding number, and it doesn't even include the BoxTops we're currently collecting for the classroom contest. Please keep collecting, cutting and submitting BoxTops as it makes a big difference for our school!
Remember, eBoxTops count too. Visit the fundraising page of the PFO website to find a link the the eBoxTops marketplace, as well as a shopping link to raise money for sales through Amazon.
Also, I just wanted to give a little shout out the UPS Store on Fish Hatchery Road. Over the years, the manager has been very supportive of our school, an he donated the shipping to send in our Box Tops. If possible, please support the businesses that support our school!
Vision Screening Assistance
Leopold school nurse, Lori Zinck, is looking for two volunteers to help with vision screening on Nov 8th from 8-10:30 in KG and 3rd grade classrooms. Lori will give some brief instruction to volunteers from 8-8:15 before the screening starts. Please email Lori at email@example.com or call her at 608-204-4246 if you'd like to help.
The next PFO meeting is Tuesday, November 12, at 7 p.m., in the school library. We hope to share some exciting new ideas we are working on for the school!
I have the November/December newsletter all ready to go except for one final piece I'm waiting on. I will post it on the PFO website this week and send out the link next week in my email.
School Messenger Call
You will likely be receiving a call and/or email through the School Messenger system tomorrow to confirm that you are receiving these PFO/school emails. If you receive this email (which obviously you did if you're reading this), you do not need to take any further action. The School Messenger message will be to make sure we have collected all of the Leopold family emails that we can at this point in the school year.
Thanks everyone. Happy Election Day!
The PFO emails are posted on this blog.
