Fall Festival is our largest Fundraiser of the school year and we are excited to continue this tradition while also bringing some new elements to the festival this year! Did you know that some of our Fall Festival preparations are already underway?! Yes, it’s true. How can I help, you ask? We are looking for individuals to coordinate Food, Silent Auction, and Children’s Auction events. Have ideas for other ways to support us? We are all ears and want to know how you’d like to jump in on Fall Festival planning and preparation. Email us as email@example.com and let’s start chatting!
The first meeting of the 2017-18 PTO Board was held on Monday evening. While enjoying some delicious food, including vegetables harvested from the AHES gardens, we bounced around a lot of ideas for next school year!
We are excited to expand the Board in 2017-18 and invite you to consider taking on a role such as grade level representative, volunteer liaison, and/or representative from our ESOL community. We are also looking for parents who can support the roles of Fall Festival Silent Auction Coordinator & Fall Festival Foodie! Have ideas for making our school even more beautiful, join our Beautification Committee. We have a great line up of events and activities to support our students and staff at AHES…opportunities to volunteer abound!
Many hands make light work and we are excited to engage everyone in our PTO community. There is a role for everyone regardless of your time availability and being a part of this amazing community is truly inspiring!

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 email@example.com for details.
The PTO is entirely volunteer-run and depends on our Agnor-Hurt families for support. Thank you!!
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.
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!
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!
Wooohooooo! We received this notice from Kroger today: “Your supporters (105 households) who shopped at Kroger between 9-1-2016 and 11-30-2016 have contributed to your $1836.63 total donation.”
If your family is one of those 105, THANK YOU!! If your family is not among those, it is not too late. Link your Kroger card to Agnor-Hurt Elementary, and every time you shop, they will donate. https://www.kroger.com/account/enrollCommunityRewardsNow
Thank you! and Happy New Year!
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!
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!
The spring Book Fair will be coming to Agnor-Hurt the week of April 18! This is always fun for the kids and is a great fundraiser for our library, music and art departments. We need some parents to help on those days! Please sign up online to help out. Thank you!
