Input Needed for Family Fun Night

Several items were on the agenda at Tuesday night's PTO meeting.

 A large part of our discussion focused on a lack of volunteers, most recently at Samuelson Family Fun night, and for PTO in general. Due to a lack of volunteers, Family Fun Night 2015-2016 will likely not occur. We would really like for this tradition to continue, so please feel free to give us suggestions on how we can attract more volunteers. We truly want some input.

Thanks for supporting Samuelson!

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.
