Main Elementary Newsletter - May 2021
The final stretch of a fantastic school year!
As we end one of the most challenging school years, I want to say "Thank You" to all our families for your support as you entrusted your children to continue their education in a seated/virtual school environment despite the COVID pandemic. With all of the necessary mandates, it wasn't an easy task for anyone, but together we managed student learning while keeping their safety a priority.
Even though we are in the final stretch of the school year, we have a lot of things happening. It is an exciting time with grade levels doing different activities to wrap up the year. Please look over the calendar so you don't miss anything!
We feel fortunate to live and teach in Beavercreek, where our kids come first!

The school year is quickly coming to an end! We are happy to finally schedule some fun events for the month of May!
First and foremost, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to Amanda Bafs (Treasurer) and Kim Cocuzzi (Secretary) for all of their hard work on the Main PTO Executive Board for the past two years. Your time and dedication to the students and staff is very much appreciated and we will miss you both next year.
We would also like to say welcome aboard to Lindsay Tate (Vice President) and Chrissy Smith (Secretary) who were elected to the Executive Board at our April meeting. Additionally, Jill Williams was elected as our new Treasurer.
May PTO Events
SCHOOL SUPPLY KITS for next year can be ordered online now through July 1, 2020. We know it's hard to think about school supply shopping. That is why we are so excited to announce a continued partnership with 1st Day School Supplies! This year, 1st Day School Supplies is going to help parents and teachers get the exact supplies needed for next school year without the headache of shopping at WalMart, Target or Staples. We have personally found 1st Day School Supplies to be convenient, easy and hassle free! Plus, they have guaranteed competitive prices on the highest quality brands, including the germ fighting brands like Purell and Lysol. Why not check school supply shopping off your list now! Shop the easy way! Select your student’s grade level - the kits will be delivered to the school and in your student’s classroom when they come in the fall!
