ALL THE THINGS
Pay to Play
Due to school being closed today, we are moving the “Pay-To-Play” day benefitting The Children’s Heart Foundation to this upcoming Monday 3/2!
Students are encouraged to wear RED and bring a $1 donation on Monday only. PTO will be our front in the a.m. collecting all donations. Students will participate in the planned activities/games during their normally scheduled PE specials time throughout the week.
Please refer to your classroom teacher’s specials schedule to see when your child will be attending PE.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 7:30-3:30
Before school shopping is limited to students with parents.
Students with money can shop during their specials time on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Parents are welcome to shop with their students before school, during specials or any time on Thursday.
PLEASE NOTE – ACCEPTED FORMS OF PAYMENT INCLUDE CASH, CREDIT CARD or EWallet
Our third annual Groves Elementary Carnival will be held on March 27. It’s a night to kick back and enjoy rides, games and food together with family and friends. It is also our biggest school fundraiser.
Our auction baskets are a HUGE part of this fundraising. Each class has been assigned a basket theme. Room parents are working with classroom parents to collect donations (either physical items or cash donations* with which the room parents will purchase basket items).
These baskets will be available during a silent auction at the carnival.
Money collected goes to provide more than you can imagine: technology for the school (i.e. promethean boards, 3-D printers, student tablets, teacher computers, etc.); improvements to the school (sunshades, playground equipment, storage units); teacher and staff continuing education (specialized conference fees, classroom literature, etc.). This is just the tip of the iceberg.
Currently we serve over 1,000 elementary students and we are fortunate to have over 100 wonderful staff members.
It would be impossible to serve this school and all within it without our carnival.
z help us to keep improving our school by donating to your classroom basket.
All donations are due by Friday, March 6.
*please do not send money to your teacher. Contact your room parent for the best way to send monetary donations.
