NCES PTA NEWSLETTER - September 2019
PTA Quick Update
Dear NCES Families,
We hope everyone had a great summer break and want to welcome everyone back to school. We have a lot of great activities and events planned for the following month that we'd like to share with you.
The NCES Open House will be on September 10th at 6pm with a short all member PTA Meeting at 5:30pm...we hope you will be able to join us and hear about the year and some really great opportunities to get involved!
We heard lots of feedback this summer about providing opportunities for parents to meet and socialize with other parents in the same grade so we are so excited to start that this year with Popsicle's with Parents!!! Please join us on 9/24 for K and 1st and on 9/26 for 2nd and 3rd. We hope this will give you an opportunity to get to know other parents that are in the same class. The Popsicle's with Parents for 4th/5th grade will be held in October.
We are really excited about the beginning of the year and look forward to seeing you at all the events this month.

Ongoing Fundraising Updates and Opportunities
Please use Amazon Smile and designate the PTA Kentucky Congress in Prospect, KY as your beneficiary. These funds will go directly to support the NCES PTA. This is a great way to give back while shopping this holiday season.
The new box tops app has gone live! If you already have the Bonus Box Tops for Education App, just go to your App Store and update it.
Here is an info graphic on how the new box tops program will work moving forward. (Clipped tops can still be turned in until they expire) We will be working on getting a feeling of how this app works and explore some of the BTFE chats to see how coordinators are planning to track donations by class or family for collection contests.
For now, try downloading the new app and start scanning your grocery receipts over summer break! Share the app with family and friends also!
Thank you for your continued support! This is a simple and easy way to provide additional funds for PTA Programs and Events!
