Hello Colt Families!

Once again I speak with gratitude, it is because of all you we surpassed our fall fundraiser goal! We were able to raise just shy of $13K. These funds will be used to fulfill teacher grants, school projects and new murals. We cannot thank you enough for your generosity!

Are you a crafty person? If so, please join us on December 11th from 9-11am. We will have a craft workshop for our upcoming Winter Party. How about good with decorations? December 17th , we will be decorating our gym after school for our winter party. Look for both signups soon.

Our 2nd Annual Holiday Movie Night is December 14th. We will begin showing Elf in the gymnasium at 6:30pm. Remember to bring your blankets and chairs as there is no seating within the gym. Come hungry! We will have pizza, water and hot chocolate for a small donation.

Did someone say party? This year’s Winter party will be December 18th in the gymnasium. We will have multiple stations for the kids (and adults alike) to enjoy. If you would like to volunteer on this day, please let us know. We will need all the extra hands we can get!

Again, THANK YOU! We are forever grateful for such a giving community.

Wishing you and yours a Happy Holiday and New Year!

Katie Grigg

PFO President
