North Pointe News
September 11, 2020
Thank you for all of your positive calls, emails, and comments about everything. Thank you for teaching your children about the 3 Ws of wearing a mask, watching their distance, and washing their hands!
We are very excited and positive about the year ahead!
20-21 School Calendar
We will plan to hold our Silent Auction this year, all online! Information will be coming out soon from our PTO Board about this virtual event.
Instead of holding our monthly ceremonies with parents, we will be doing a virtual presentation which will go out to all parents in my North Pointe News. Stay tuned as we celebrate our awesome students!
Since COVID-19 guidelines have prevented us from being able to celebrate student birthdays with special treats from home, our District's Culinary Services would like to offer parents their services!
Please see the attached brochure of offerings and contact information.

Virtual Academy Parents
From Wendy Rausch, Room Parent Coordinator
This year responsibilities for Room Parents have slightly changed due to Covid 19 restrictions. We still need your help for BOTH in-person and virtual classrooms. Teachers, this year probably more than any before, need your support and encouragement. You will help spearhead these efforts as well as in-person room parents will coordinate (with the help of the PTO and your child's teacher) a class basket for an on-line auction. You do not do this alone as you and your Co-Room Parent will recruit other parents in the class to help. A list of willing volunteers from your child's class will be provided.
Please consider volunteering as a Room Parent by filling out the information ON THIS FORM by Friday, September 18. You will be notified if you are selected. I will hold an online orientation to share more information with you about what the year and your responsibilities will look like.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, Wendy Rausch, Room Parent Coordinator, at 864-363-1233 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working with you this year!
Again, please complete this form by FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18.
