The Latest and Greatest
Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon week begins next Monday, October 19. There are activities each day, with a theme and fun dress up. Please see below for all the details! Thank you PTA and Student Council for helping bring this together!
MONDAY, OCTOBER 26 WE WILL KICK OFF PENNY WARS!
All the details of Penny Wars is below. Please participate and help Art City get the sound system we need for our musicals! We can't do it without YOU!
We are raising funds to purchase a new sound system for the gymnasium. If you've been to any assemblies or more importantly class performances and our school musical you know that our system is VERY outdated (over 30 years old). It is not compatible with the sound board or microphones we use for our musicals. That is why last year the mics would often not work. :( For the last few years we have been saving a grant our PTA gives us (any funds they do not need to run PTA are granted to the school.) But, we are still almost $7,000 short for the purchase of a new sound system.
Please join with us in a fun 4 day activity to raise money for Art City. Please consider donating bills (any denomination) to your child's class bucket. Help them win the Silly String Battle! You can also donate in the office and we will count it toward your child's class.
Pennies and bills are “positive.” Here’s how it works: • Containers are located at each classroom • Each penny counts as one positive point for YOUR classroom • Dollar bills also count as positive points for YOUR classroom • Each silver coin counts as negative points for OTHER classrooms. In other words, dropping a quarter in another classroom’s bucket takes 25 points from their total • At the end of the day on October 29th, all change/points will be tallied and the TOP THREE classrooms with the most points will win a silly string battle Start saving your change—it can make a big difference!
TREATS: (added to class points)
1 penny = 1 point
1 dollar bill = 100 points
5 dollar bill = 500 points
10 dollar bill = 1,000 points
20 dollar bill = 2,000 points
50 dollar bill = 5,000 points
100 dollar bill = 10,000 points
TRICKS: (subtracted from class points)
1 nickel = 5 points
1 dime =10 points
1 quarter = 25 points
Students will have the first 10 minutes of the day to bomb other classes with silver coins.
Cute posters with all information will be on our website.
