PTA President’s Corner April 2017

posted in: News | 0

Happy May!!!  Can you believe there are just a few weeks of school left?  First and foremost, I want to thank EVERYONE that has volunteered their time this year.  Whether it was just an hour shift at one of our many events, chairing a committee or serving on our Board, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!!  It truly takes a village to make our school one of the best in the area, and we have such a strong village.  I would love to see our village grow even stronger in our 2017-18 school year.  If you are interested in serving on our board next year, chairing/co-chairing a committe, being a committee member, or just helping out where you can, please contact us at https://curlewcreek.org/pta-committees/ or drop the PTA interest form that was sent home in our PTA box located in the front office.  There are some many ways that you can volunteer and remember it doesn’t all happen at school!!  There are many ways you can help without even stepping a foot into the school!!

We have so many great events planned for May. Here is a quick summary.

Staff Appreciation Week is May 1st through May 5th.  This is the week we show thanks and gratitude to our staff for all they do!  If you would like to help out during that week, even if it is just bringing in a dessert on Dessert Day, please sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d48a9a72aa5fd0-20171.

Are you a Secret Pal?  Come to our Secret Pal Reveal Party on Friday, May 5th at 7:45am in the Media Center.  We will have breakfast refreshments to munch on while our Secret Pals find out who we are!

National Bike to School Day is Wednesday, May 10th.  We will be celebrating this event that morning starting at 7:45am in front of Forest Run Park.  Come join us for some exercise in the morning while learning about bike safety.  We will walk over as a group at 8:10am.

Do you love to play bingo?  Well, then you need to come bring the family to our Bingo for Books night on Friday, May 12th from 5:30-8pm.  We will have a free dinner for everyone starting at 5:30pm and then the bingo fun begins at 6pm!  The bingo winners will get a pick from a table full of books!  There will be books for all ages!

Our P.E. staff will be hosting Field Day on May 15th through May 17th.  This is always such a fun day for the kids to come out and compete in all different types of events.  And then, of course, the class events are always an exiciting event to watch!  Check out the times on the events page of our Curlew Creek PTA Facebook page.  https://www.facebook.com/curlewcreek.pta/

Mark your calendars for the last All Pro Dad/iMom meeting of the school year!  It will be held on Tuesday, May 16th from 7-8:05am.  We will be hosting a Minute To Win It tournament.  Come out and show us your great skills and win some prizes!! Please RSVP by May 5th by either sending in the form on the flyer that was sent home or go to https://allprodadsday.com/chapters/4293.

Our annual Barnes and Noble Book Fair will be held on Wednesday, May 17th from 4-8pm at the Barnes and Noble on US19.  We will have a special guest, Karen Jakebson, there for a book signing.  She was the author/illustrator of “My Washington D.C.” and “My New York”.  There will be cupcake decorating, 3rd grade singing and all sorts of prizes to win!  We will also have a suggested reading list for every grade.  Come join us for a fun night of shopping that also benefits our school!

It has been such a great honor serving as your PTA President this year.  It has truly been a pleasure to be a part of the Coyote Family and seeing all those wonderful faces at all our events.  I have been able to meet and work with some amazing people.  We have so many great things in store for next year so I extend the offer to you to be a part of it.  I look forward to seeing you at our events and May and hopefully being able to work with you next school year!

Last but not not least, I can’t thank Lauren Regan for her amazing support over the last few years as our Teacher Liasion!  She has truly been a gem!  We thank Coach Ellis for stepping up and filling her shoes for next school year!
