Farmer Elementary School PTO Newsletter November 2022
A message from your PTO
We had a wonderful time at the Fall Festival last month. It was great to see so many families enjoying the games, food, and fun. The outdoor movie was a hit as well and we look forward to more of these family friendly events in the future. Thank you to everyone who made this night such a success. Your donations of food, candy, and drinks were very appreciated. Our school is blessed with so many generous and caring families!
If you have leftover Halloween candy that you would like to donate to classroom teachers to use in their prize boxes, the PTO will have a container at the front office where you can drop off any extra candy that you have.
