A Message from Mrs. Thompson

Good afternoon,

I hope everyone has a relaxing four day weekend! We will be extending our Food Drive until next Friday. We will be collecting non-perishable food items to support Matthew’s effort to end hunger. You may send non-perishable food items with your student until next Friday. If we fill 6 boxes, our students will celebrate with a dance party next Friday!

Thank you and have a great weekend!


Mrs. Thompson

Can Your Business Help?

We are so excited to be planning our Bobcat Bonanza to be held April 22nd (with a rain date of April 29th). This community event serves as our spring fundraiser which includes a BBQ or Pizza dinner, games, inflatables, a DJ, children's raffle, and our silent auction! This silent auction serves as a fun event for parents as well as a great way to earn money for some of our school programs.

If you have a business, you own or work for and would like to donate an item for our silent auction, we would love to represent your business on our silent auction table. In turn, if you would prefer to simply as a sponsor of the event, we would still recognize your business! Attached is our Donation/Sponsorship letter which shows our different levels of sponsorship and what kind of advertising we will offer in return to help promote your business. Also, families are always welcome to donate auction items as well if interested.

This is in no way meant to feel like an obligation. We just wanted to share the invitation in case anyone is interested. Please reach out to Caitlin Reeves at president@bushpto.com if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Your PTO Board
