Puma Periodical

September 28th - October 12th

Halfway through Quarter 1!

It's hard to believe, but we are already halfway through quarter one! How the time flies when you're having fun in school! Below you will find a multitude of announcements. One of the most important is that we will be asking for your child to bring in $20 in the coming weeks to support our end of the quarter celebrations. Please read below!

$20 Request - Due October 16th

Every year, at the quarter's end, the Puma team puts on two types celebrations for our students. One to acknowledge their academic achievement and one to award them for showing their SPOTS! The Puma team is asking for your child to bring in a one time $20 donation to go toward the following, for the entire school year:


  • Quarterly Awards Ceremony Food and Drink
  • SPOTS/PBIS Celebration Prizes
  • SPOTS Ticket Gift Card Raffles


All of these rewards will go right back to support and reward your student.


Please send in a $20 cash donation with your student before October 16th. The money should be in an envelope titled "Mia Montanus". Please also write your child's name/your email address and your child's homeroom teacher on the corner of the envelope for our records. THANK YOU!


We also need a variety of $5 gift cards to businesses that your children enjoy patronizing. If you have a connection or would like to donate those on top of your $20, please sign up HERE and send those gift cards in with your student.


Be on the look out for a SignUp Genius for food and drink in the coming newsletters.


ANY QUESTIONS? Please email our Team Parent Lead, Amy Montanus at amontanus@nc.rr.com
