Hospitality Committee

Taco 'bout someone who deserves a delicious catered lunch... the AMAZING staff at Penny Road Elementary!
Hold onto your sombreros and get ready to fiesta like there's no mañana!

The PTA will be providing a luncheon catered Moe's on Wednesday, March 18th. We are kindly asking for your help to cover the drinks and desserts. We are also collecting monetary donations to offer several different salad options in addition to the Moe's offerings. Visit Konstella for details.

If you would like to make a monetary donation, please send the funds to
Edie Marino via PayPal or Venmo.

We ask that all food and drink donations be dropped off at the front desk that morning by 9am. Please label any desserts or dishes that are prepared at home so we can make sure they are safe for any dietary restrictions.
We cannot thank you enough for all your support in making these breakfasts and luncheons such a success! The teachers and staff are SO appreciative and we could not do this without YOU! We are truly an amazing Penny Road Family!
It is always a good day to thank a teacher!
