Students will bring home packets today (3-7-18) for the Yankee Candle Fundrasier. Sale is March 7-19. See attached flyer for more information. You may also order online. New App this year...makes it even easier to sell to your family and friends. Check out the information on the attached flyer. Money should be collected at the time of taking the order. Checks should be made out to TZ PTO.


One of the roles of the TZ PTO is to provide support to the students and staff of Tzouanakis Intermediate School through fund raising. The TZ PTO provides many different opportunities for families to help support these efforts. The TZ PTO certainly appreciates any support that the TZ families and community may provide, however, we don't expect families to participate in all of the different opportunities. The TZ PTO tries to provided different options that would appeal to different people.


The TZ PTO also has the option for parents that would like to just donate and not participate in any of the fundraising opportunities.


Students will bring home the candle packets today. Please return the packet if you choose not to participate.


Again, we appreciate any support you may or have been able to provide, whether that is with your volunteering at an event or participating in the different fund raising efforts.


Respectfully,

Mr. Strube and TZ PTO

TZ Spring Picture Day--Thursday, March 15

Our spring picture day is Thursday, March 15, 2018. Students will not be photographed unless they bring an order form on picture day. There are many pose options on the order form this year. Props will be provided, however a student may choose to bring one small prom from home if they choose. A copy of the order form/envelope was sent home with students. We do have a few extra in the office, and a copy is linked below. There is an option to order online and pay with a debit or credit card. You would go to the website below to place your online order. You have the option to pre-pay online or by sending in cash/check in the envelope provided on the order form. You may also check the box on the envelope that indicates you are not ordering a picture package now, but you would like to have your child's picture taken for possible future orders.


In review, students will only get their picture taken if the return a pre-paid envelope, you have requested their picture be taken for a future order, or you have pre-paid online. Please contact the TZ office or Pettit Photography with any questions.

Now is the time to ENROLL or RECONNECT your Kroger Plus Card to Help Earn FREE Dollars for TZ

TZ Parents and Guardians,


Here is an exciting opportunity to help TZ with no cost to you…Kroger’s Community Rewards Program that links your Kroger Plus Card to the organization you would like to support. Each purchase made using the Kroger Plus Card will earn points for TZ. These points will be converted to dollars donated to TZ by Kroger throughout the year. You will need to “connect” your card to TZ each year. Below are simple steps to connect your Kroger Plus Card to TZ. Contact the school office if you have any questions about this program. This does not affect any other promotions or benefits you receive from using your Kroger Plus card (i.e., fuel rewards). This is an additional benefit to TZ.


For those that already have a Kroger account and a linked Kroger Plus Card

Note: Each December you will need to reconnect your Kroger Plus Card to the organization you wish to support. If you have already connected your Kroger Plus Card to TZ, we ask that you take a few minutes to reconnect your card to continue to support TZ.

This is the time of year that it is not uncommon to experience an increase in illness within our schools and community. The following guide provides information about the signs and symptoms of some common illnesses that we are currently seeing an increase in among our students. This is intended for educational purposes only. Many of these illness have similar symptoms. You should consult your physician for diagnosis and treatment.


Sincerely,

Rhonda Kessler, RN, BSN

Note: Orders may be placed anytime throughout the year. However, if we don't have the size on hand, then we need to wait until we have enough to place another order. Thank you for understanding.

Volunteer in the Classroom, Eat Lunch, or Field Trip--Need Background Check On File--Good for One Year

Greetings TZ Parents/Guardians!

At TZ we appreciate parents/guardians that would like to volunteer to assist in the classrooms and/or go on field trips. As a part of any volunteer activity, we must have a cleared background check on file for each person wanting to assist here at school or accompany a class on a field trip. New this year, we will require anyone going beyond the office that will have any interaction with students to have a cleared background check on file. Also new this year for all GCSC schools, a background check expires at the end of the school year, and a new background check will need to be completed at the start of the new school year.

I wanted to take time to clarify the limited/volunteer background checks. These background checks are free to our volunteers. A limited/volunteer background check is only good for one calendar year. If a volunteer wishes to continue volunteering after one year, they must submit a new application.

A link to the form that needs to be completed and turned in to the TZ office is below. You may also come by the school to complete the form. We do need to have a copy of your driver’s license to process the request.

Again, we appreciate your willingness to volunteer.


Mr. Strube

Are you looking for an easy (no extra cost way) to HELP TZ?

If so...you may send in these to help TZ earn dollars for our school.

We are looking for a few good men to volunteer their time at TZ.

Men can play an important role in the lives of our students. Please consider volunteering an hour of your time each month to help students, and support TZ. We are looking for volunteers to help welcome students as they start their day, provide classroom support, and help with special events and spirit days. If you are willing to help, please fill out the form below. If you have questions, please contact Brian Cox at briancox@gogreencastle.com or Jon Strube at jstrube@greencastle.k12.in.us. Any men interested in volunteering would need to have a current background check on file. Please request a background check form from the TZ office or you may go to printable forms on the TZ webpage to print your own form.
