Fitness Friday-help needed

Dear Parents,


Fitness Friday is a tradition at Erin School. Our indoor Fitness Friday (for 4K - 5th grade only) will take place on Friday, February 28 from 1:00 – 3:15 (volunteers meet in the gym at 12:30). For those of you that have not experienced Fitness Friday, it is an afternoon filled with movement, mentoring, healthy snacks, and lots of fun fitness challenges. We have many local businesses that partner with our school for this event.


We are in need of many parent helpers to make this event a success. Your job would be to simply help supervise a station and encourage the students as they work on the fitness challenges. Please email me if you are able to assist. If you have question or know of any other businesses that may want to join or support our program, please send me an email at mueller@erinschool.org.


Come join the fun and help create another successful Fitness Friday. Thanks for your support and assistance in providing fun and beneficial activities for the students at Erin School.


Thank you and have a healthy day!


Sincerely,


Mr. Mueller

Parenting the Digital Generation

Hartford Area Schools are presenting "Mike McGowan-Parenting the Digital Generation".

This free presentation will be held on Wednesday, March 11th-6.30 pm at Erin School in the library.


Children of the 21st century are growing up in a digital age where they're introduced to new forms of technology on a regular basis. Although these new tools can bring many benefits to the world's youngest generation, they can also alter the way children learn to relate and connect with people, especially when forced to interact with others face-to-face and not through a screen.


Mike McGowan will talk about how technology has shaped the way students handle peer mediation and how adults can stay connected with the kids in their lives without the use of technology.

Fun Fair-Silent Auction 2020

Join us Saturday April 4th!

Believe it or not the annual Fun Fair is coming up fast!!!!

For those of you who have not experienced it before, the Fun Fair is the biggest PTC annual fundraiser of the year. It takes place here on April 4th and is a huge to-do. It is a carnival type event with games, prizes, food, bingo, and a large silent auction. I have been in charge of the silent auction part of the fair for many years. Lots of time and energy is put into it. Each grade has a theme and we ask families to donate items that go with that theme if they are able. These items are used to help fill the baskets that are auctioned off on that day (see grade flyers below). I also get many donations from outside businesses; who very generously donate a variety of items.


There are also many families who might like to donate within our school who own their own businesses or have some type of home based business. (For example, Tupperware, doTerra, Color Street, Young Living, Thirty-One, LuLaRoe, etc.) There are also some who might like to donate a specific item(s) from your family. If any of this applies to you and you would like to make some sort of donation to this year’s silent auction, please let me know. Please do not feel obligated or feel as though you have to donate. This is just to let you know who to contact if you are interested in doing so.


Thank you very much.

Daycare and Lunch payments

When paying for lunch and daycare we ask that you write separate checks. Lunch and daycare go into separate accounts so having separate checks helps our bookkeeping. Please indicate in the memo what the payment is for.

If you are paying cash make sure to include your name and reason for payment.

Thank you.
