If you are available on the day of the Run, especially before the event at 8:00 am to help set-up, we would love to have you! Please contact Amy Tessitore at email@example.com with your availability.
Breakfast Buddies: Thank you so much to all who were involved in the success of our Breakfast Buddies Week at Sargent! We were very grateful for the assistance of the moms/dads and kids who volunteered each morning - we could not have done it without you. Special thanks to Ms. B, Mrs. Scandore and Mr. Queenan for all their help setting up each morning. Hope all the Sargent families had fun! BethAnne Iglesias and Kim Campion
Scholastic Book Fair The book fair was a huge success with many happy students, parents and teachers browsing and buying. Many home and classroom libraries were enriched by books purchased for teachers and through classroom gift certificates. Didn't get a chance to shop or missed out on a title you wanted? ALL NEW THIS YEAR: WE HAVE SET UP AN ON-LINE EXTENSION OF THE FAIR. Profits from this extension will benefit the school in the same way. Just visit: http://www.scholastic.com/schoolbookfairs/2859259. You'll be able to shop until November 4th. We hope you'll check it out.
5th Grade Committee Our next all-5th grade committee meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011 at 9:30 in the Cafeteria. Please mark your calendars and come if you can. Our next meeting will be an evening meeting in December. Thank you! Kim (KimHearst@comcast.net), Snowy (JimSnowy@yahoo.com) and Chris (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Sargent annual coat drive begins OCT.17th. Coats for Kids, sponsored by Anton’s Cleaners, begins October 17th and runs through January 8th. Please help out by bringing in your gently used coats of all sizes for children, adults and babies – please no rips, tears, broken zippers or permanent stains – coats you would give to a friend to wear. The coats will be cleaned and distributed in MA and NH to those in need this holiday season. This year Sargent will again participate in the SCHOOL REWARDS program which honors the top three elementary schools that collect the most coats per student enrolled. So clean out your closets and get involved in supporting this worthy cause! A large, marked bin will be located in the main entrance for you to drop off your donations beginning October 17th. Any questions, please contact Heather Ursu (email@example.com) or Lynne Khater (firstname.lastname@example.org), Community Involvement.
Trick or Treat for UNICEF: This week the familiar orange cardboard box for UNICEF will be sent home in your child’s backpack. We hope that you will assemble the UNICEF box with your child and read through the materials together. This is a simple way to involve your child in a charity – one that provides food, water, medicine, and hope to needy children all over the world. This is a voluntary program sponsored by the PTO, and we hope that you will help us continue the Sargent tradition of giving to UNICEF. Please encourage your child to bring their box trick-or-treating with them, asking for small donations, or simply give some of their own change towards this charity. Please return the boxes to school by Friday, November 4th. If you have any questions please contact Carmel Calandra-Fischer at email@example.com, Community Involvement. THANKS!
