SPIRIT DAYS - Cynthia Voss
This year PTA will strive to build up our school Community and increase parent involvement during the school day and at school events by sponsoring Spirit Days.
- T-shirts (with the Emojis) and order forms for hoodies and jackets are available in the PTA Room/ School store. Order Deadline is extended to September 26th.
- Spirit Days will be the last Friday of the month. They will have a fun theme as always and link into monthly assemblies and Ms. Shover's word of the month. August Spirit Day winners (wearing the most green or AAA t-shirts) got popsicles.
- Family Spirit Nights will also be the last Friday evening of the month. These will be family events PTA puts on to encourage family interactions outside of school work. We will have fun, raise funds for teacher's requests, and build community.
- Word of the Month PTA supports Mrs. Shover's word of the month program. Throughout each month, Teachers will give out "blue tickets" to children exhibiting the "word-of-the-month" positive behavior characteristic. At the monthly assembly, Mr. Young will draw two blue tickets. PTA will provide super cool prizes.
- Lunch-time Awards Mrs. Gretzmeier will draw a name for a lunch time student. exhibiting good Lunch time behavior. (Its a little crazy in there right now.) PTA will provide another great prize.
- "Spirit item" at the School Store. Each month PTA will feature a NEW spirit item to enhance your Spirit Day attire. By field Day, we will look like the Razorback stadium on game day. Go AAA!
