Family Literacy Night

Don't forget to visit Family Literacy Night at school from 4-6 pm today. It looks Iike there are a lot of great activities planned.
PTO will have a table with information in upcoming activities and events where volunteers are needed.
We will also have a limited number of Adult sized Walk-a-thon shirts available for sale. The design students at Central Campus gave us these shirts for free, as they used them for extra practice with the printing process. All proceeds will go toward the Walk-a-thon totals.
Thanks for supporting Samuelson!

The Walk-a-thon results were announced today and prizes are coming home with students.
Brea Goods was the top earner and won the Amazon Fire Tablet.
Kadence Carpenter and Benjamin Reber won the $50 Target Gift Cards. Parents of all three students need to stop in the office to pick-up their student's prize.
The classrooms that won the Popsicle Parties for having the highest grade total are:
Kindergarten: Mrs. Conzemius
1st Grade: Mrs. Noel
2nd Grade: Mrs Pender
3rd Grade: Mrs. Groth
4th Grade: Mrs. Devires

The Pizza Party Lunch with Mrs. Roerig for students earning at least $100 is being scheduled for next week.
We are still finalizing some of the Walk-a-thon expenses but will have a final total soon. We were able to present the school with a check for $2,500 for the purchase of library books.

PTO Update

Just a quick update on PTO activities - to tell you we'll have more updates soon. smile emoticon
Thanks to everyone who supported the Scholastic Book Fair last week. We are finalizing the paperwork with Scholastic this week and will announce the results as soon as we can. We had several families volunteer to work the Fair for the first time!
We have ordered the Walkathon shirts and should have them soon. We work with the Graphic Design students at Central Campus so the process takes a little longer than a commercial company. But we get shirts at a great price and the students get experience working with real clients. The design they created this year is really cute! As soon as we get the shirts and assemble the prize packages we'll announce the results and schedule the Popsicle and Pizza Party Lunch with our Mrs. Roerig. Thanks for being patient!
Thanks for Supporting Samuelson.
