Culture Fest Reminders

Culture Fest is fast approaching. Sandpipers (T2) need to fill a couple more half-hour volunteer slots on the Tots 2 playground applying temporary tattoos and monitoring the treasure hunt.

Please click here to choose a slot on our Sign-Up Genius Page.

It would also be helpful if anyone would like to volunteer for set-up in the morning or to stay a little after the party to help the staff clean up. You can sign-up for those 30 minute shifts at the top or bottom of the page. Big thanks to the folks who have already signed up!!

If you can't make it to Culture Fest, please consider donating some cupcakes to the cakewalk. You can drop them by the school office on the Friday before.

Barton Hills Farm Field Trip, 10/31

We have scheduled our first field trip of the year. Come join us at Barton Hills Farm on Halloween morning at 10:00am. The farm is located in Bastrop and you can get more information by visiting their website.

We plan to finish the morning with a picnic, so plan to bring a blanket and some food. Being Halloween, we figured costumes would be appropriate. The trip is not mandatory, by any means, so no pressure. Please note that siblings are of course welcome to come.

Lastly, there will be a contingency plan if we get rained out.

Taking the Stress out of Staff Appreciation

For those of you who are new to Athena, there are a handful of different ways that parents typically show staff appreciation throughout the school year (e.g. staff birthdays, holiday gifts, and general school fundraising). The Athena team is amazing and many parents like to do something extra to show our gratitude.

As the Tots 2 room parents, our job it to help coordinate it so that it isn't stressful or confusing. In the coming weeks, we will be putting together some information so you have a sense of the "when and how" of giving during the '15-'16 school year.
