Volunteers & Donations Needed

April is a busy month!  We have several events coming up that require some parent volunteers and/or contributions.  Here’s a quick list:

Book Fair:  The week of April 17-20.  We need a bunch of parent volunteers to help students choose and buy books.  Please sign up if you can come in for an hour or two (ore more!).

Teacher Appreciation Week:  We are providing lunch for the teachers and staff on Wednesday, April 26.  Please sign up if you can bring something for the lunch, and/or help for an hour or so with set up and clean up.

Talent Show, April 28, 6:30pm:  We need some parent volunteers before and after the event for set-up and clean-up.  We could also use some volunteers to help rehearsals run smoothly.  Please contact the PTO at agnorhurtpto@gmail.com for details.

The PTO is entirely volunteer-run and depends on our Agnor-Hurt families for support.  Thank you!!

Spring Book Fair

It’s almost Book Fair time again!  Planning has begun, and we need YOUR help!  Parent (or grandparent) volunteers are needed to help the Book Fair run smoothly.  Please sign up for a shift (or two, or three) on our Sign Up Genius.

The Book Fair runs April 17-21, with Monday and Tuesday being preview days (the kids come to look, but no sales).  Wednesday through Friday we will be open for sales.  Note: The Book Fair will close at 11am on Friday.

Spring Box Tops Contest

Between now and April 14, we will be holding the spring Box Tops contest.  The class that collects the most Box Tops will win a popsicle party!  During this time, if you wish to receive credit for Box Tops through the Bonus App or eBox Tops, please e-mail Jen with the amount and teacher’s name.

Note:  We collect Box Tops all year long, even through the summer!  But to count for the contest, they must be turned in to your child’s teacher by April 14.  Thanks!

Skate Night – Feb 17

This year’s Winter Skate Night will take place on Friday, February 17th from 6:30-8:00.  Come lace up your roller-blades and join us again for a night of good old fashioned fun.  We have all the equipment you will need, but feel free to bring your own equipment, especially your helmet!!!  As always there will be raffle prizes, great music, popcorn, and fun!  We hope you can join us for this wonderful community event!

Free Money from Kroger

We just received this note from Kroger: “Your supporters (86 households) who shopped at Kroger between 6-1-2016 and 8-31-2016 (Qtr 4 2015 2016) have contributed to your $946.11 total donation.” Thank you to those 86 families who have linked their cards!!

If you are not one of those 86 families, please take a moment to link your card now! It’s quick and easy, and it doesn’t cost anything, but it makes a big difference to the school.  Kroger requires families to link their cards every year, so even if you linked last year, you need to do it again.

It only takes a minute, and it doesn’t cost you anything!  Every time you shop at Kroger, they make a donation.  It does not affect your gas points or cost you anything, so it’s FREE MONEY for the school!  Please, take a moment to visit their website and re-link.  Thank you!

If you have a Giant or Harris Teeter card, please link those, too!

Box Tops/Campbell’s Labels Update

Our spring Box Tops competition is ending this week!  Although we collect Box Tops all year long, only those submitted before this Friday (May 20) will be counted for the contest.  The winning class will receive a party of their choice (ice cream, cupcakes, or pizza).

Sadly, the Campbell’s Labels for Education program is ending at the end of this school year.  If you have any Campbell’s Labels at home, please send them in before the last day of school.

You can save up Box Tops all summer, and send them to school any time.  If you don’t want to save them for fall, you may drop them off at the school office, which is open all summer (call first for hours).

Thank you for supporting our school!
