Cheers to 30 Years- Hip, Hip Hooray

Our spring carnival is just 2 months away and this year we are celebrating 30 years of Penny Road Elementary. Planning has been underway for months. Currently, volunteers are working hard to secure donations from businesses and we could use your help! If you or anyone you know would like to make a donation to help us with our fundraising efforts, we would appreciate the help. 100% of the proceeds raised from our silent auction and raffle basket ticket sales stay directly in our school. We are seeking restaurant and store gift cards, restaurant experiences, hotel stays, tickets to sporting events and different experiences around town like concerts, summer camps, lessons, tutoring, vacation home stays, new electronics, family photo sessions, donation of services for home improvements etc. All donations are 100% tax deductible. If you have any questions, please email Amy Toland at tolandfam@gmail.com.

Update from the Hospitality Committee

Hello Panda Parents,

We could not let another week pass without sending our heartfelt gratitude towards every single parent who has supported the Hospitality Committee since the beginning of the new year. Your continued generosity has been astounding! Particularly impressive was the past chili luncheon. We have some seriously talented crock pot experts!

This month we will treat the teachers to a restocked lounge, a bagel breakfast, and a Moe’s luncheon.

Thank you again for everything you do!

The Hospitality Committee
