Parent Committee Update

Hi Parents,

A few items of note as we get ready for the sprint to the finish line this year:

1. Bottle refund money can keep trickling in for another two weeks. We are SO CLOSE to our goal of $550 (as of this morning we have reached $377.30) Thank you to the families who have participated so far!!

2. The top three student sellers for the Mom’s Pantry Fundraiser will be announced at the next school assembly. Thank you for your support with this yummy fundraiser – the proceeds came to $1378.07!!

3. Our final general Parent Committee Meeting will be held at 6:30 on May 22. Mark your calendars – we’d love to have you attend.

March Bottle Drive Update

We are off to a slow start….but I am confident that we will reach our goal of $550 by the end of March!! Take a few minutes this weekend, to sort out the dusty recycle bottles in the basement or under the back porch and get them to the depot. EVERY bottle counts! Watch for a picture of our "bottle thermometer" on Facebook – we’d love to add to the one lonely green can. Thanks for your help!!

PCS Parent Committee Important Information – March 3, 2019

A little known fact is that March is “MOVE out those BOTTLES month!!” (Really, why not?;)

So for this whole month (which is really ½ a month if you are a student) round up your recyclables that will fetch a dollar, and round up your extended family and neighbors recyclables (with their permission of course)…..and take those BOTTLES down to the Bottle Depot for a refund. Then, (please), bring that refund out to the school.

Our goal is $550! To make this a very exciting activity we have created a “pop can” thermometer beside Mrs. B’s door, in which every Kelly Green can represents $25. So, if we reach our goal, that will reflect floor to ceiling pop cans!!

Watch for updates on email as we inch towards our goal!!

And…after Spring Break we will announce our grand total, and……after Spring Break we will also update you on the Mom’s Pantry success and present the 3 highest earners with their prizes.

Happy Bottle Collecting & Happy Spring Break!!

P.S. Parents – the grade 4 & 5 class made super thank you cards for the Parent Committee for all the work that is accomplished in the year….hotlunch helpers, milk helpers, field trip helpers and fundraising helpers. To see these cards – stop by the inside window after you come in the elementary entrance. Thank you Grade 4 & 5 Students!!


Thank you for your support on the recent Mom’s Pantry Fundraiser! Our profit should be close to $1500! I will let you know the delivery date and time as soon as I hear. Have a great day!
