Good evening families! Welcome to a short, but action-packed week!
Little Cesar's Night is Tuesday, November 13, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Yes, you can in fact, eat Little Cesars for lunch, dinner and late-night snack! You can also purchase gift cards for future pizzas or gifts (think stocking stuffers). 25% of all sales during this time will be donated to Leopold.
The second PFO meeting of the year is also Tuesday, November 13, from 7-8 p.m. in the school library. The PFO is developing a three-year plan of things we'd like to see at school. We are forming partnerships with groups within the school and the community to help us get there. Join us to brainstorm some ideas, share your thoughts and learn about ideas under development!
Thursday, November 15, is school conferences so there is no school on Thursday. If you do not have a conference set up, be sure to contact your child's teacher ASAP.
A date has been set for the Timberwolf Trample fun run! Previously we listed April 20, on the calendar, but this conflicted with the Crazy Legs run that many of our volunteers, and some students, participate in. So the date for the Trample has been moved to May 11, 2013. This is Mother's Day weekend so we'll be planning something special for moms who run or cheer!
On that note, we are in need of a Chairperson for the Timberwolf Trample. The chair will provide overall organization and leadership for this exciting event, and will work with a fabulous and experienced team of volunteers. If you are interested, or even just want to know more information, please email me. Don't assume someone else will do it. We'd much rather have multiple parents interested and find a way to divide up duties than to have no one step up.
Speaking of leadership, two PFO Board positions will be open for next year: Vice President and Treasurer. If you are interested in learning more about what is involved with a PFO Board position, please contact me.
For families with 5th graders, or anyone interested in learning more about middle school, please mark your calendars for a meeting on Tuesday, February 12 at 7 p.m. Middle school principals from Cherokee and Wright will be sharing information about their schools, and a parent panel will also be available to answer questions. Watch for more details as that meeting gets closer.
Box Top submission deadline for the class contest is December 4. Although we sent sheets home last month, you do not have to attach your box tops to the sheets. Sometimes this is a fun project for kids and sometimes it's just more work! You can send them just cut and in a baggie if you prefer.
Have you noticed the new QR codes posted on all of the doors at school? These are square black and white bar-code looking icons. If you scan the code, you will be taken right to the latest Leopold School and PFO news on our blog. It's updated frequently so keep checking! If you find this useful, please let us know. If you don't have a scan app on your phone, you can download one called SCAN for iPhone, Android or Windows Phone.
Lastly, the November / December newsletter is now up on the PFO website. There's some interesting and fun stuff so be sure to check it out in English and Spanish here!
The PFO emails are posted on this blog.
