Marsh Weiss Newsletter!
Week of May 4, 2015
Lots of good info here!
Movie with Marsh Weiss THIS FRIDAY!
I will find out pick up time but I'm guessing around 5/5:30
We also still have space for more families at the June 6 Kindergarten and 2nd Grade Pool Party, which includes swimming, a taco truck, popsicles, and sangria for parents. At the home of a WHE family in the Hollywood Hills. Celebrate the start of summer with your best school friends!
Spring Concert - Dates and Costumes
All we need is a White and Green shirts so please find your child below to know what color your child will need to wear. (Think of the color green from the Mexican flag!)
They are asking for 1/3 wear white and 2/3 wear green. If you do not like your color, PLEASE DO NOT COME TO ME! Find a family with an opposite color and see if they will trade!
The day and time are up in the air due to conflicts with field trips but will give you a date asap!! More then likely will be either Wed. 27th or Fri. 29th at 8:30am.
Apple Fitness Challenge!
This great event helps fund our schools Apple Program.
We need an infusion of money every year in order to support the existing equipment, pay for tech support, and train teachers, and Apple Fitness has been a fun event we've done in the past that the kids really like.
It s a great day of games and physical challenges that our kids will participate in and getting a check mark for each one they finish!
We're asking our families to TRY to get 10 pledges of $20 each in order to reach the $50,000 overall goal.
We would really like to have the kids be in charge of getting their own pledges and not just have parents write a $200 check.
Permission slips are REQUIRED in order to participate!!!
Forms can go back to teachers or there will be a box in the office. If you know of any companies that might want to sponsor this event there's information on that same webpage about sponsorship (gyms, dance studios, gymnastics, etc.).
We need about 30 volunteers to do things like setup and run the fitness events from 8:30 - 11:30 that day. Michelle (Ms. Craig's class) will get a signup genius together and I'll get that link to you.
Last year we made $120,00
this year....we made $132,000!!!!!!
And we still have 2 big money making opportunities!!!
Awesome job parents!!
This takes me to.....
Pop Up Art Show!
Friends of West Hollywood Elementary (FOWHE), Voila! Studio and the arts committee is excited to announce our first ever, one night only "pop-up art gallery" fine arts exhibit and sale on Weds., May 13th at Voila! Studio (518 N. La Brea, between Melrose and Beverly) from 4-8 pm.
Up for sale will be incredible donated works by notable artists, photographers, and LA street artists, as well as classroom art that the kids from West Hollywood have created.
Donated art will be for sale at incredible prices, and we are overwhelmed by the generosity of the artists who have contributed.
The evening will be casual and fun - with live music, a museum style pop-up shop filled with something at every price point, free drinks (donations welcome) and food.
Best part? All of the proceeds go right back to our kids to help fund important programs that LAUSD no longer pays for - PE, teacher aides, music, art, field trips, assemblies and more.
Please go to our facebook page for more info, as well as let us know you're coming! https://www.facebook.com/events/1594533830793105/
