Spring has Sprung!

After our unusually cool month of March, April is heating up quickly.

Happy Spring Everyone!

We are doing a Spring Fundraiser for Perkins PTA this year with the Calloway Fundraising Cards for only $10! They have all of our favorites local spots like Cicchio’s, Chili’s, Evos, Moe’s, Sonic, Menchies, Tropical Smoothie Cafe and more. You can use them every single day and they are good for ONE YEAR. It’s a sweet deal and we hope you find them useful! We sent home order forms and we have the cards available for a quick turn around. Please send them in an envelope to the school with a check made out to Perkins PTA or cash, with the filled out order form. This needs to be put in the safe at the front office. They will be sent home with your child within two days. If you need more order forms, they are available in the front office. Every child that sells 10 cards gets time in the Bounce House! Any child that sells 25 cards will get a Special provided McDonald’s Lunch with Mr Pleshe and Mrs. Kranzel.

The Pre-K & Kindergarten Sponsored Teachers and Staff Luncheon is Thursday April 19th and the Sign Up Genius will be going out on April 12th to the grade level parents 🙂 so please be on the lookout for that

Don’t forget to mark your calendars Ladies! Rolling Cabana Night is scheduled for Thursday April 19th. Have a fun ladies night out with our private shopping experience with a great downtown boutique that has a lot of cute stuff for not a lot of $$!

March PTA

We just got done counting the Box Tops and have raised another $425.00 for our school PTA. The deadline to postmark this batch is March 1st. All other submissions won’t be credited until the next school year. Thanks to everyone that clipped and submitted, we appreciate you taking the time. This brings our Box Tops fundraiser total to $1159.70 for the 2017/2018 school year! Mrs. Fuss’s 4th Grade Classroom won the contest, collecting a total of 650 Box Tops and 48 bonus Tops! They will get a Pizza Party 🙂

Please don’t miss the PTA General Meeting on March 6th in the Multipurpose Room. We are providing childcare because of the delicate subject matter about gun safety through the program Be Smart for Kids. This meeting is a presentation directed for adults.

Evos Spirit Night is scheduled for Tuesday, March 13th, please stop by for some good eats to support the PTA. If it has to be fast food, at least it’s a healthier fast food option!

Thanks everyone for taking the time to read up on PTA events

PTA NEWS

Hello everyone! I wanted to update you on a few things concerning the PTA.

Our next PTA General Meeting will be on March 6th, at 6:00 pm in the Multipurpose Room. We scheduled a speaker named Amanda Raitano with an organization called Be SMART for KIDS, a month prior to the devastating events that unfolded on 2/14/18 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. This program is a conversation about kids, guns and safety, it will be educational and informative. It can also be a forum to discuss your concerns and talk about whats happening in the world today. Here’s the link for the website if you would like to find out more, prior to the meeting.

http://besmartforkids.org/about/

A great source of information is found at http://www.floridapta.org about the safety of our children and things we can do to further that effort. It’s what the PTA is about!

If you would like more information on how to express your concerns at a legislative level, please contact the PCCPTA at pccpta.org and explore Voters Voice – Legislative Alerts about the latest updates from Tallahassee.

We will be discussing the need for another fundraiser to help us achieve our budget goals by the end of the year, as we did not meet our goals from the Fall Fundraiser. ONLY 20% of the 2017/2018 schools student population was counted as being able to donate to our Fall Fundraiser. That leaves 80% not being able to donate. This leaves us in need to be able to pay for the bare necessities, such as teachers reimbursements, for their out of pocket expenses in classrooms.

Thanks to those of you that came out to Chuck E Cheeses in support of the PTA on January 25th. That event raised our organization $410.00! I hope you had a little fun and the kids did too.

The Black History Month Teachers Luncheon is scheduled for Thursday, February 22nd. If you have any questions or want to volunteer, please contact Donna Skinner in the front office.

There may still be volunteer positions available for next years PTA Board and event Chairpersons, please contact Mr. Pleshe if you would like to discuss these opportunities. Our April General PTA Meeting will have nominations for the next school years positions.

Thank you for your time, have a great night!

Happy New Year

We hope everyone had a great Holiday Break! It’s a fresh start to the new year ahead.

There are only two PTA events this month.

The 2nd Grade Sponsored Teachers and Staff Luncheon is this next Thursday, January 18th, in the Media Center. The link for the Sign Up Genius was sent out to 2nd grade families and it was posted on our various sites and Dojo. I’ll attach the link here as well, in case you have missed it. The theme is “Taco Thursday!”

We are also having a fundraising night on January 25th at Chuck E Cheeses. Please be on the lookout for the info and coupons for that, in your child’s backpack. There are posters around the campus as a reminder! We hope to see you there to support your PTA!

 

December Updates

We hope everyone is off to a great start for the month of December! Always such a busy time of year, not just at school but in our every day lives. We, the PTA, try and take a step back and let you focus on what’s truly important, time with friends and family.

We are still having PTA Board meetings and keeping things up to date behind the scenes. In the month of December, PTA has a catered luncheon for the teachers and staff on the 21st. This is our way of saying thank you to the staff! If you would like to volunteer time for set up and clean up of this luncheon, please contact me at dcroteau79@gmail.com.

We do have a limited amount of long sleeve Perkins Spirit shirts in child and adult sizes available for purchase. We are trying to be out front of the office Monday-Friday, Dec 4th-8th at drop off and dismissal. The long sleeve shirts are $15 and short sleeve are $10. They make great Christmas gifts! We hope to see you around!

November is here!

It’s definitely getting cooler out! The holidays are coming up fast and things will be busy for all of us. PTA takes a step back but stays in motion behind the scenes for a couple months.

Fall Festival was a lot of fun and thanks to all that volunteered and to all the parents that came out to the event. I loved seeing the Pumpkin Patch this year, it was a success!

Box Tops have been counted and mailed and we will be getting a check for just about $700.00! Thank you to all that have collected and turned them into the school so far this year. The winning classroom that turned in the most (marked/labeled) Box Tops sheets and bags is…Ms. Roach’s Class 🙂 They will choose a date for a classroom Box Top Party!

The two upcoming PTA events for us this month are EVOS Night on November 7th from 3-9 and the Third Grade Sponsored Teachers and Staff Luncheon on Thursday November 16th. Please be on the lookout for emails and info coming home for these events.

The theme is “Tailgate Party.” If you have already signed up via the Sign Up Genius link emailed to 5th Grade parents, THANK YOU 🙂 If you still would like to sign up, here’s the link

Fall Festival is Saturday October 7th from 10 am until 2 pm. Posters went up around the school today to let everyone know the date and time as well. Please mark your calendars! This is a fun family event you won’t want to miss. There are some great vendors like BondLove, Strands of Sunshine, Nail Art, Tracy has Lularoe, Snuppets, Succulents in the City, Lipsense, Pink Zebra and many more 🙂 We have face painting, a caricature artist, games, inflatable jousting ring, massive obstacle course, Kona Ice Truck and Food! Advanced ticket sales start this coming Monday. Watch for the paper coming home for more info. A Sign Up Genius will be going out this Friday (along with the PTA Meeting Fingerprinting one) so please be on the look out for those in your email.

Rolling Cabana Ladies Night has been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 24th from 6-9 pm. Please join us ladies (and/or men with good fashion sense-buying for your ladies) for a private shopping experience with apps and drinks. Everything is hand picked by the owner and reasonably priced! A percentage goes back to the PTA, it’s a win win!

We hope to see you around 🙂 Thanks!
