Friday, September 24th | 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm | Werner Elementary


Let’s get together! The Werner PTA will be hosting the Fall Fun Fest on the Werner Playground. We’ll have food, dancing, and LOTS of FUN! Families will have the opportunity to take part in a scavenger hunt around the Werner grounds, Suit and Tie DJ will be there rocking out with the kids, and Coach J will have an obstacle course set up on the field. We’ve invited Story Maker Coffee Bar, Kona Ice, Backyard Bird, and Campechana Mexican Food trucks to be onsite for purchase, and the PTA will have Little Caesars pizza and bottled waters for sale, $1 each (cash, card, and PayPal accepted). There’s something for everyone! You won’t want to miss it!


The PTA is so excited to host this event for our Werner Families, but we can’t do it without your help! We are still in need of a few more Werner Grownups to volunteer to assist with with (we have adjusted shifts to be 30 minutes):

· Set up tables, chairs, and concessions.

· Serving pizza and water.

· Cashiers for pizza and water sales.

· Supervising obstacle course with Coach J.

Later this month (October 20, 21, 22), Safe Routes To School is coming to your child’s PE class to work on biking skills and safety. More information to come on that.

Nonmedical exemptions must be submitted annually at every new school year (July 1st through June 30th of the following year).

PTA Update

PTA and Boosterthon Host a Giving Drive!

Werner Elementary is excited to be hosting a giving drive! Our goal is to raise $14,000 to support our school. The money gifted to us will help to bring guest speakers and interactive activities to the school for Earth Day, and fund more fun celebrations like Fall Fun Fest, including Donuts with Grownups and Mugs with Mentors. Principal Camp and the PTA have a long-term goal to fund a Media Room makeover. Some of the things donations have been able to fund for Werner in recent years include the playground equipment, equipment for our specials classrooms, an interactive weather station, classroom curriculum and supplies, and technology for our school.


At the Fall Fun Fest this Friday, we’d like to invite kids to get in on the spirit of giving by having jugs available for them to bring spare change. There will be a jug per grade at the PTA tent. On Monday, September 27th, Werner family and friends will have the opportunity to support our school by making one-time gifts online at direct.mybooster.com/wernerelementary. Giving is simple, quick, and easy—there’s no registration or sign up required!
