First, we would like to thank each and every one of you who have signed up for the PTO, donated time during our super successful bake sale and Harvest Festival!! As well as those who are continuing to volunteer for our school. This is turning out to be a great start to the year!
If you missed the PTO meeting (as it was on an odd day), I'd like to give you some updates for the events coming up.
We will be doing a Santa's workshop the week of December 7th - 11th. We need volunteers before and after school for one hour shifts. This is for the children to be able to purchase gifts for family and friends and there will be wrapping available for a small fee. We will also offer one day (Wednesday) during lunch and/or recess for sales.
Friday night, the 11th, will be a Parent's Night Out. We will be allowing parents to drop their children off for a few hours of fun, games, and possibly show a movie while parents go out to do some Holiday shopping. We will also have Santa's workshop open during this event as it will be the last opportunity for kids to buy gifts. We will also need volunteers for this event. If you have any older children who require volunteer time, or know of other family who would love to do crafts, games and help with the children, please let me know.
The following week December 14th - 18th, we will be doing Santa Grams. The students (or parents) will be able to purchase treats and send to a classmate, a staff member or even themselves for a small price. Santa will try to deliver to all classrooms on Friday, but he may have a few elves helping him out as he has to be back at the North Pole to get ready for the holidays. We will also need volunteers before school, during recess and after school for this.
Please feel free to email me if you are interested in volunteering for any of the events, or you can go on volunteer spot and sign up. The links are listed, below. Please click on them or copy and paste. The links are usually case sensitive. We will be sending out an email with more information as well as reminder emails as we get closer to those dates.

We want to take this opportunity to express how grateful we are for all your support thus far and let you all know we truly appreciate all your efforts. As we stated in our original PTO introduction, we want to include all who are interested and be as informative as possible, so if you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to any of the board members.
Our ultimate goal is to make sure our students, teachers and staff are well taken care of. Nate Mack Elementary is a wonderful school, full of amazing people. The more money that we can raise, the better we can do for the children. If anyone has any ideas, concerns, etc., we hope that you feel welcome to speak to any of the PTO board members about them.
If you have not signed up for the PTO and are interested, please find a form in the front office and join!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Without you all, this could not happen.
