March 2016 PTA Newsletter

What a great start we’ve had to the spring semester. Successful book fair, science night, in addition to kiss the pig! Coming up soon is our talent show – look for information on that. A big thank you goes to our March volunteer of the month, Angelica Johnsen for all your hard work on collecting the box Tops for school. Also, thanks for lending us Pixie the pig for our kiss the pig contest. Hope everyone has a great spring break- looking forward to diving back into school as soon as we get back from all our spring break adventures!

MATH STARS

Math Stars is still going strong.  Continue to encourage students toparticipate in this voluntary math enrichment program.  Volunteers are working diligently to provide and grade Math Stars weekly, and the math puzzles are interesting and provoke thinking about math in different ways than your student may have thought of before. Keep up the good work!
