Good evening Leopold Families. It's been a tough weekend to be a parent of elementary school kids. I hope you were all able to squeeze in a few extra minutes with your kiddos this weekend. In the event you have not seen Friday's and Saturday's messages from Principal John Burkholder or Sunday's message from Superintendent Jane Belmore, they are both worth your time to read.
Leopold Staff Treat Day
Please consider putting your baking, cooking, or purchasing premade snacks expertise to good use and help our teachers/staff get through the last crazy day before Winter Break. Leopold parent Kristi Buscemi is organizing the annual Winter Staff Treat Day, which will be held on Friday December 21. We would like to ask parents to bring in some special goodies for staff on Friday. Kristi will be at school by 9:00 a.m. on the 21st, you can drop your item off to her then, or send it in with your student. Be sure to label items "staff lounge". If you bring in items before 9 a.m. you can leave them with Jane or Emily in the school office. Some ideas of things to bring: cheese and crackers, salads, dips/chips, cookies/bars, crock pot casseroles, fruit trays, candies.
If you are able to help out, please email Kristi with the item you think you'll bring. If you aren't sure yet what you'll bring, no problem, just let me know you're bringing something. firstname.lastname@example.org Also, label any dishes with name and teacher and I'll get it back to you via backpack express. Larger/breakable items can be picked up in the staff lounge.
Thursday will be the last Open Schoolhouse of 2012! Come grab a warm winter drink and check out the cookie decorating station. The ZUMBA instructor has a special surprise for all participants. Come anytime from 6-8 pm for a night of cozy family fun!
Please help keep all of our kids safe by obeying the signs and regulations regarding parking and traffic around school. Attached is a brochure that details safety and parking information.
During our recent BoxTop collection contest, our kids brought in more than 10,000 BoxTops! This is in addition to the 10,000 turned in earlier this year. This is AWESOME!!!! Classes are being totaled and the winners will be announced soon! Keep saving BoxTops for our next contest in the spring.
Our Amazon earnings are already at $181 for the year! That is double our earnings from last year. Please continue to enter Amazon.com through the link on www.leopoldpfo.com so we can get credit for whatever you buy!
We will also be using our Campbell's and My Coke Rewards points to buy some Giving Tree items for our staff.
Speaking of the Giving Tree, remember to check teacher wish lists here. Consider adding to a classroom library for a holiday gift.
Thanks everyone. Have a good last week before break, and enjoy the time off. School resumes on January 7.
