Mini-Blitz PTO Fundraiser was a success!!

The due date for the mini-blitz was last Friday and all of the money has been counted! However, we will still accept money turned in this week. We know life can get crazy! As a reminder, for every $25 a student raised their name will be entered into a drawing for 2 bicycles and 4 gift certificates to Beans & Things. Ms. Pala will draw for these prizes during the afternoon announcements (1:45 PM) on Friday.

  • 147 students brought in money
  • $12,808 was raised
  • 73 students raised $100 or more dollars (which means they earned a lunch with me)

Ms. Pala will create an invitation for the student with the date we will have the lunch and put that in the teachers' mailbox. We will purchase more playground equipment with the money. Ms. Pala received quotes on adding an obstacle course, gaga pits, portable basketball hoops and blacktop games which the PTO will discuss at the November meeting on the 4th at 6 PM.

Picture Retake Day

Tuesday, Oct. 26th, 8am

106 Pleasant Avenue

Knoxville, IL


Each year, teachers have put "snow day" packets in a folder with a note saying that they live in the student's backpack until they need them. These will be sent home in orange folders in the next two weeks. Please make sure these are kept safe! In the past, we have had snow days in October, so we wanted to be prepared ahead of time.

Butter Braids are coming! They will be delivered on November 17th so you can enjoy them during Thanksgiving!
