Reminders and Announcements

-Thank you for a great PD day today. I hope you were able to get some sharing and planning done this afternoon!

-Don't forget to join PTA and pay your LOL dues

-Arturo Sanchez-one of our board members-will be speaking at our PTA meeting on Wednesday at 5:30 pm.

-If you are wearing jeans and it is not a jeans day, you need to be turning in a jeans pass into Sherri that morning.

-We will be wrapping up jeans pass sales this week. This money is used to purchase our basket for the CCEF gala. I know that some of you do payroll deductions for CCEF and you should be getting your Whataburger coupon soon. Thank you for helping us support CCEF. The deadline for mini-grants is approaching soon. You can write a mini grant this weekend! The grant is for up to $500 and will be given out by Nov. 15th.

-You will have another opportunity to purchase jeans pass! In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, you can purchase 3 jeans passes for October 16, 23, and 30. If you purchase the pass, you can wear jeans and a pink shirt. We will use the money to purchase some dinners for Stacy and will donate the rest to a foundation.

-If your team has not finished your character board, please try to get it done as soon as possible. We would like to be able to judge and give the winners lunch as soon as we can.

-Thank you for helping us collect the borrowed lunch money. I am still a little nervous about this. PTA has given us $500 to cover this and I had a sweet parent who donated $100. We would still like to make sure that we are paid back if possible. We are only letting them borrow for lunch-not breakfast.
