Note from Karen (PTO President):
Thanks to all the parents who attended our last PTO meeting. Remember ANYONE can attend a PTO meeting. Meetings are usually held the first Monday of every month. Next meeting will be October 6th at 7:00 p.m. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
We have attached the volunteer form in case you have misplaced yours. Please complete and return to school by no later than the 18th. Also, earlier we had sent home a blue form to help with class parties, please try to find a time to help with one or more parties as they are really fun to do and a nice way to meet your son/daughter’s classmates and parents. LATEST DATE TO TURN THESE FORMS IN IS SEPTEMBER 18TH!!!
The Box Tops collection has started! Remind your children to bring their box tops to their classroom buckets for fun surprises or parties!
Once again Watson will be participating in the Allen's Education Advantage program. This is a simple way to earn money for our school. All families need to begin saving Allen's receipts dated September 1, 2014 through March 31, 2015. Send the receipts to school with your child to be turned in to his/her teacher. Allen's will then award Watson with a check for a percentage of what was spent in their food mart. There will be a couple of contests throughout the year, so start saving those receipts now!
You may send receipts and box tops anytime with your student.
One of our biggest fundraiser for PTO will be kicking off SOON our annual Magazine Sales. Please save any renewals you may have coming up and renew through us. There will be prizes for top sellers!
PTO will be doing a Student Directory again this year. Attached is a note with information regarding this directory. PLEASE DO NOT send the note back unless you do not want your child in the directory or if you have different information than what was on the school census card.
