Raise Craze Update

Big picture

Thank you to EVERYONE that participated in the PTA Raise Craze Fundraiser!

Note: The deadline has been extended through the weekend if you’d still like to participate:

Remember: We gave 3 “house points” for every registration.

Yellow House held the lead on highest # of registered families – Congrats!

Red House went wild on highest # of emails sent & most funds raised too – Woop!

We couldn’t have let kindness take over without each of you – And even though the fundraiser is nearly over, please let the Raise Craze mindset stick with you!

The PTA is excited to put the funds to good use with Field Day expenses, Family Picnic activities and supporting our staff and students as we grow as a school the rest of this year.

Character Trait:

The Character Trait for the month of February is Friendship

Friendship is spending time with someone you trust and enjoy, and accepts you as you are.

Friendship can come in many forms. Some of your friends may be from another school, while others may be from your neighborhood or activity that you are involved in. You can also have friends within your family. The friends your child chooses are critical influences in their lives. Ask your child what qualities he or she looks for in a friend and why it is important to have friends you can trust.

After talking about true friends, plan a weekend this month to host a fun slumber party with the friends your child most trusts and enjoys. Plan the party together with your child, then sit back and enjoy watching him or her grow healthy relationships!
