Week of May 15th

Due to state testing, we will be on an alternate schedule on May 15. There will be no volunteers on May 15 until 1pm daily. There will also be no lunch visitors on Monday. Life returns to normal on Tuesday, however. ONE MORE DAY!

Delinquent Cafeteria Fees Due Friday

We currently are in the red $286 in the cafeteria. Please log on to http://www.myschoolbucks.com, check your child's account, and bring your balance into the black. Your child's lunch account is not a credit account. Please make sure you never owe the school money for lunches. You can set up reminders on My School Bucks to alert you when your child's balance is low.

Kroger Cards Help Generate BIG MONEY for Our School

Kroger donates 4% of all money you spend after you scan your Kroger Plus card as long as you connect the Plus card to our Longbranch PTA account.

If 400 families connected their cards and spent $100 a week at Kroger, each family would make $4 per week. That's $1600 a week. That's $19,000 a quarter. That's unreal. That's plain and simple easy money.

We encourage you to visit Kroger.com and create an account. Click Community Rewards. Search for Longbranch and connect your plus card with Longbranch PTA. It's the EASIEST fundraiser you'll ever participate in, period.

7 Habits 101

Sharpen the Saw!

Students who sharpen the saw regularly have a greater output of performance in work or school tasks. To sharpen the saw means you take time to nurture your mind, body, and soul so you can be your best you. Tagline: Balance is best.

LOOKS LIKE: From an adult perspective, you take time daily to mediate, walk the dog, read for enjoyment, attend a painting class, play an instrument, run with a friend, etc. Daily you or your child participate in something that brings you joy and balance to your life. Did you just say, "I don't have time for that"? You don't NOT have time for that. There's very solid research that would tell you that if you do this daily, your productivity will skyrocket.
