Artist Day Volunteers Needed!

Calling all patrons of the arts! Artist Day is quickly approaching and we need your help to be successful. Approximately 20 artists will be at the school on Thursday, March 29th to demonstrate their crafts for our children. This is always an exciting day and we cannot do it without our parent volunteers. Mark your calendar for March 29th and look for the SignupGenius next week.

Apple Raffle

Children can show their appreciation to any teacher or staff member at school (even custodians, office staff, and cafeteria count!) by buying an “apple” for $.50 and writing why they appreciate that staff member. PTA will be in the front lobby each morning from February 26th-March 8th helping the children purchase and fill out their apples to deliver. This money will go towards a gift card raffle, each time a staff member has an apple bought for them, their name will be entered into the raffle. Please help us support all of the staff at Roswell North!

Teacher Appreciation!

Help us celebrate our teachers! Each day the children will help the PTA show our appreciation for our teachers! Our Theme this year is:

“Having Teachers Like You is a Fairytale Come True!”

Monday March 5th - Snow White - This one is a good apple! (Bring an apple or apple product gift for your teacher)

Tuesday March 6th - Goldilocks and the 3 Bears - These Bear Hugs are just right to say thank you for being so awesome! (Give your teacher a hug and wear your “RNE Bear” spirit wear)

Wednesday March 7th - Once Upon A Time - Thank you for being even better than a Fairytale! (Wear your teacher’s favorite color and bring in a gently used book or game to donate to the classroom)
