**PTO Board Elections**

School may be closed but the show must still go on! 

On May 7, 2020 at 7 pm we will be hosting a Zoom virtual PTO meeting for the purpose of holding elections for next year's PTO Board! All positions are up for re-election and we have 4 positions with ONLY 3 people interested. We cannot do this without more volunteers.  The PTO cannot operate without Parent volunteers! 

Join Zoom Meeting

If you are interested in a position or wants to know more about it please email Kendra at shoepresident@gmail.com or Debbie at shoevicepresident@gmail.com. Thanks!

It is TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK!  THANK YOU TO ALL THE TEACHERS!  The PTO thanks all the teachers for all their hard work and we appreciate you even more during online learning.   

The PTO was able to celebrate the teachers with a little something for each teacher thanks to all the fundraising during the year from the parents.  

PARENTS -  if you would like to provide a thank you video of your children to the teachers to be posted on the PTO Facebook, please email the video to Kendra at shoepresident@gmail.com

Unfortunately due to school closing - we did not have a book fair so all the credits for the book fair from the Readathon cannot be cashed in at the book fair by the students.  We are very sorry!  If you want to get your book fair credit in cash (10% of the Readathon pledge donations, e.g $5 for $50 donation), please email Kendra at shoepresident@gmail.com with your student name, address and/or Paypal account so we can mail it or send via Paypal.  

If you do not want your book fair credit, all leftover money will be put to good use as we will be donating money from the Readathon to buy books for the library!  

If you had paid for the cancelled Phantoms game or kindergarten field trip, we need your addresses!  We have all the Phantoms and kindergarten field trip reimbursements ready but no addresses...😭😭
If you want yours mailed to you, email Kendra your address and family name at Shoepresident@gmail.com. Otherwise they will be left in the main office of the school for you to pick up when school is in session again! Stay safe and stay home!
