LEVEL CREEK ELEMENTARY

LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENTS

October will be an exciting month for Level Creek PTA! We are busy getting ready for our upcoming Fall Fundraiser, “Building on Success.” During the fundraising week, kids will have a chance to earn unique Lego-style mini figures. The Fall Fundraiser will kick off with an action-packed pep rally on Friday, October 2nd. The best part about our fundraiser is that our volunteers run the entire event, and all money stays at Level Creek.


Money collection will begin on Monday, October 5th and run through Friday, October 9th. Each child will earn his or her first mini figure with a donation of only $1. For every $10 donated, your child will earn additional mini figures. During the fundraiser, times will be set aside during the day to allow the kids to trade mini figures with their friends. Students will also have a chance to earn other great prizes, such as an inflatable party and a limo ride.

Students of PTA members will have an exclusive minion mini figure in their collection bottle for the pep rally. Do not miss your chance. Join PTA today: www.levelcreekpta.org/membership.html


It is the only way to get the minion in their collection, and we would love to have your support of our PTA.


Thank you,

Michelle Frost & JoEllyn Robinson

Earning for Learning

The next box top pick up date is Friday, October 16th. It's "Batty for Box Tops” time! One class in each grade level that turns in the most box tops will win a popcorn party!! Thanks for your continued support.

Children's Original Artwork

Your child has been creating an original artwork in art class under Mrs. Arnold's instruction. You will have an opportunity to have this artwork put on various products, such as mugs, phone and iPad covers, t-shirts, ornaments, pendant necklaces, and many other things you can purchase from Square 1 Art. Many of these items make great one of a kind gifts for friends, grandparents, aunts/uncles, etc. and they will be delivered to your child before the Thanksgiving break (just in time for the holidays!). You will be able to order online or send the order form in to your teacher.


This is a fundraiser that goes toward paying for the Fifth Grade tile wall, which is located on the hallway leading to the playground. Each year the PTA orders tiles of the artwork created by all the fifth graders and they are used to create a legacy to Level Creek.


Important Dates:
October 16 - Order forms in Friday folder
November 2 - Order deadline
November 20 - Products delivered to your child's classroom


There will be a fun surprise for the class with the highest percentage of kids with orders (it will be hilarious!). More information will be coming in your child's folder but if you have any questions, please contact Kathryn Adams at kicadams@gmail.com. Thanks for your support!
