Our last PTO meeting of the school year will be on Tuesday, May 16. In addition to electing new officers for next year, we will have the opportunity to hear from Mary McIntyre, a candidate for the Rio District of the School Board.
Parents, guardians, grandparents are encouraged to attend. We hope you can join us for this information-packed meeting! We will meet at 6:30pm in the school library; meetings generally don’t last longer than one hour.
The K-5 Multiage team submitted a grant over Spring Break for the Greater VA Connect the Dots Green Schools Challenge to sustain our school wide Garden-to-Table Project! Guess who took top prize? Agnor-Hurt! This is huge for AHES to keep our gardens growing! $750 will be coming our way. Courtney Wood happily attended the awards night in Richmond last week and accepted the award on our school’s behalf. The plaque will be displayed soon!
Thank you to all of the students who collected and submitted Box Tops for our contest. We are proud to announce the winning class earning a popsicle party is Mr. Lilley’s 4th grade class. Their class collected a total of 512 boxtops, earning over $50 for Agnor Hurt!
We collect Box Tops all year long, so please keep clipping! You can send them in to school with your child anytime, or save them all up (even over the summer) and save them for the next contest (which will be next fall).
Wow, what an amazing evening at the first Agnor-Hurt Talent Show! There are so many talented children here at Agnor-Hurt. We are so grateful that you all shared your talents with us! The PTO would like to send a special thank you to Dana Washington and Dawna McCracken for coordinating this very special evening. A huge thank you also goes out to all the teachers and parents who helped make the evening run smoothly! We couldn’t have done it without you all!
Teacher Appreciation Week
Thank you to all the parents who helped us make our teachers and staff feel appreciated last week! Our teachers and staff were able to enjoy breakfast, a jungle lunch and coffee delivery. A special thank you to Derry Wade for coordinating the staff lunch! The PTO was also able to purchase each K-5 classroom teacher a book from their wish list at the Book Fair!
There were too many parent volunteers to name, but thank you to all of you who donated your time to help make the Book Fair a success! We raised $1500 that will be split between the library, art, and music programs at Agnor-Hurt. Thank you as well to all of the parents and students who purchased books!
The 5th Grade will be having a Father-Daughter/Mother-Son Dance in the evening of Friday May 19th. This is a free event for all 5th graders. If your parent is unavailable, another adult may be your chaperone. This is not a drop-off event. This will take place 7:00-8:30 pm in the Cafeteria. Dress Up & Join the Fun!
Parent volunteers are needed for this event! If you can help plan decorations, food or music, set up on the night of the event, or clean up on the night of the event, please contact the PTO. Thank you!
