A Quest for Excellence

PTO Week in Review 10/21/18



Skyhawk Enrichment: 
It’s not too late to join the fun!  Cartooning and Lego Tech both begin on Tuesday and have openings.  Intro to Sewing begins on Wednesday and there is still room to join that class too.

Many of our Thursday and Friday classes still have space for a few more students too.

Please go tohttp://www.shongumpto.org/skyhawk-enrichment/ for the most up to date class information.

Questions? Please email: vpfund@shongumpto.org

PTO Membership & Directory

Thank you to everyone who has joined the PTO this school year!  The membership directories will be sent home with your youngest child at Shongum and you should see it either today or tomorrow.  If you do not receive a directory by Wednesday and think you should have, please start by asking your child to check their desk and mailbox and then reaching out to your child’s teacher.  You can also contact Kristine Loeffler at ShongumPTOMembership@gmail.com with any additional directory questions.

An extra “THANKS” goes out to those families who made a Donation this membership drive.  All donations go directly towards the numerous programs funded by the PTO each year.  If you did not make an additional donation and wish to do so, you can do this at any time by using the “donate” button on the PTO website (please note “PTO Donation” in the PayPal message) or by sending in a check made out to “Shongum PTO” with “donation” in the memo line. (Please put it in an envelope addressed “PTO Treasurer”)  These additional funds make it possible for us to offer a variety of enriching experiences without having to burden our members with traditional fundraisers (such as candy, magazine, or wrapping paper sales) throughout the year.  Any size donation is always appreciated! Thank you again for your continued support!

Room Parent Program: All parents should have received classroom-specific Volunteer Sheets from the Room Parents of their respective classes.  If you would like to be considered for a volunteer assignment (including field trips, class parties and various school-wide events), please make sure to complete these and send them back to your Room Parents no later than the deadline specified on the Volunteer Sheet. 

If you have not received a Volunteer Sheet, please contact Rachel Horwitz (Grades K-2) at terpgirl77@gmail.com or Donna Quatrone (Grades 3-5) at kingvito115@gmail.com  and we will make sure the appropriate one is sent to you via email.
