Family Fun Night Updates

The final details of Family Fun Night are coming together!

Target on Merle Hay Road has donated pop and water for our concession stand.

Windsor Heights Hy-vee is providing pizza for the concession stand at a very nice discount.  We'll have pizza for $1.50 a slice.   Pop, water and popcorn will be $1 each.

Students can sign up for door prizes from Cold Stone Creamery, Scheels,Twork It Out Metabolic Training, Entourage Salon, and Samuelson Backpacks.

Buffalo Wild Wings will be participating in Fun Night by providing games, activities and prizes for the kids.  No wings or other yummy-ness but they might bring a special guest!  The restaurant supported our Fall Fundraiser by giving the PTO 10% of what our families spent at the restaurant.

Samuelson shirt orders are going home this week with students.  You can place your shirt orders during Fun Night.  We hope to have sample shirts for families to view during Fun Night.

Wristband pre-order forms were sent home with students this week.  You can pre-pay $5 for wristbands by filling out the order form and sending in to the office by March 4.  Look for the Pre-Order line at Fun Night to check in and get your band(s).

We still need volunteers to help from 7-8:15.  Please click on this link to sign-up or send an email to Samuelsonpto@gmail.com.

Samuelson PTO Activities

The next month is very busy for Samuelson PTO.  We have put together sign-up lists for the volunteer activities and supplies that we need.   Simply click on the following links to see how you can help.  If you don't already have a SignUp Genius account it is free and easy. 

Family Fun Night on March 6 from 6-8 pm
Fun Night is a chance for our students to get together for fun and games.

We need about 15 more volunteers to help with the evening's activities from 7-8:15. Without more volunteers we won't be able to offer all of our planned activities.

Also, we are hoping to have many of the needed supplies donated to keep our expenses lower.  The proceeds from the evening will be used to buy more books for the library.

Thank-you to everyone who has already volunteered to help with these activities!  If you have any questions, please send an email to samuelsonpto@gmail.com.
