Pack the Piggies Fun-raiser!!
Are you ready to Pack the Piggy, Olive Owls? The Arlington Heights Council of PTA’s (AHC-PTA) funds $10k in scholarships each year for K-8 students, as well as D214 graduating seniors. This October, the AHC-PTA will be initiating it’s second annual “Pack the Piggies” FUN-raiser across the district to raise money for these scholarships.
The contest begins October 24th and goes through October 28th, five days to pack our piggy and reach our goal! OMS's school goal is to raise $1k, with a district goal of $9k. To help reach our goal, you can bring in coins, cash, or checks (made out to the AHC-PTA) and pack Olive's piggy! Let’s have some fun for a great cause!
Last year, our students voted on a prize and Ms. Davis and Mrs. Pemberton were SLIMED! We will be sharing a voting ballot with our students soon to determine what will happen to the principal's this year if we reach our goal.
On Tuesday, Dr. Bein emailed families asking for your feedback and thoughts on the following prompt: Please share your thoughts, feelings or questions about your sense of belonging, value, and inclusion in the District 25 community.
There is still time to give your feedback, and to review and rate other responses!
Please take a few minutes to complete or revisit this short survey (linked here). If you already completed the survey, please spend a few more minutes reading and rating other responses from around the community. This survey is completely anonymous.
*Please note, any targeted comments or comments that name individuals will be removed.*
