Flanders November Newsletter
From the Desk of Mr. Coakley
Just a reminder that the weather is changing. Please remind your child to bring the appropriate winter gear (hats, coats, snow pants, gloves, and boots) to ensure that he/she is adequately dressed for the conditions. Please put your child’s initials and grade on all winter clothing tags just in case they get misplaced, we can return it.
Mrs. Hazen's kiddos did an awesome job performing their poem about manners at the September PBIS assembly!
We had a fantastic time picking apples and pumpkins at Apple Jacks.
We continue to work hard and are making great progress with our reading skills.

Open House Survey
We would like to thank everyone who came to Open House. It was so nice to see many of our families. We hope that you were able to obtain some valuable information from the various agencies in our community. We invite you to take a quick survey to help us obtain feedback. It is very short and would be very helpful to us. Please click on the following link:

What is the PTO and who can be a Member? The PTO is made up of officers: President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer, not to mention our wonderful school staff and volunteers. So, who can be a member? If you’re a father, mother, protector, guardian, and/or a person who teaches or instructs at Flanders...If you answered YES, then we would like you to become a member!
PTO Programs & Fundraising Our primary objective as a PTO is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources, and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child and to benefit the school. To meet this important objective, we fund-raise. Here are a few programs that we sponsor and/or support: Transportation for the Ski program, 5th grade end of the year gifts and awards, the school store, decorations for the concerts, Open House and the Parent Appreciation dinner, and more!
Become a Volunteer….Why YOU should get involved! As you can see, we are a small and busy group. This is where you can come in! We need your help, and so do your children! Here at Flanders, we strive for excellence and what better way than to become involved today. We are in need of growth and are seeking volunteers to continue re-establishing the organization. We are hoping to plan some exciting events this year in hopes to get more parents involved in their children’s education. The PTO is a team effort in which we cannot succeed on our own. Please come and join us on November 1st, or send an email to Bridget Schack, our school PTO liaison, that you are interested in helping out... firstname.lastname@example.org
