A Quest for Excellence

PTO Week in Review 11/25/18



Holiday Gift Shoppe
The HGS has arrived! Gift prices range from $1.00 to $14.00. (Please note- gifts for adults tend to be at the upper end of the price range and the lower end is mostly small children’s items.)

Reminder- Please send your child in with cash or a check (made out to Shongum PTO) in an envelope and a list of who they are buying for.  No returns. No exchanges will be accepted once the class leaves the HGS.

Also, we do not have enough parent volunteers to make this a successful event, please consider signing up for 1 volunteer time slot. Thank you!


If you have any questions please reach out to our HGS chair:

We are looking for volunteers to assist with the planning of the games, some can be done on your own time, while more help is needed on the days of the games. Our first meeting will be this Friday, November 30 at 10am at Lori Brooks’ home.
Please email Lori Brooks at LoriBrooks1@gmail.com or Meghan Shannon at Megan.shannon@shannonwrites.com if you are interested in volunteering.
