October PTA Newsletter
Kramer PTA October 13, 2018 - English Version
October 13, 2018
Here is a quick summary of September and early October. I want to say Thank you to so many of you who have given their time and money to support Kramer. Our first North Texas Giving Day was a huge success. Our community raised about $8,000! Thank you to each person who sent back an envelope or who donated online. Spirit Night at Shack Shack was fun! We hope you enjoyed spending time with other Kramer Families, raising some money and earning a Free Dress Pass. Movie Night was rained out but we will reschedule a date in the spring. Hispanic Heritage Night was darling, yummy and well attended. Thank you for brining food and encouraging your little ones to participate in the celebration. The Kramer Hillcrest Homecoming Float took First Prize at the homecoming parade. Thank you to those families who helped build the float and participated in the parade.
Take look at what we have going on for the rest of October and November.

Don't be left out of the loop! Kramer will use the Remind app school-wide to keep our families better informed about school emergencies, school announcements and events, PTA communications, and activities at grade levels. This FREE service allows Kramer to send quick messages through text messages, push notifications, or emails to all those who have chosen to participate. Instructions can be found on our website https://kramerelementary.org/remind/
Want to receive your messages in Spanish. You can! Remind will automatically translate an English message into Spanish. You will need to have your phone language settings set to Spanish and open the Remind message in the Remind App. It is that easy.
