A Busy Week Before Winter Break!

Dear Families,

This is the last week before our winter break, and there’s a lot going on!

- Don’t forget to send in your child’s selection for the afterschool self-sustaining program. The flyer (2014 Self-sustaining Program Spring) is on the pta41.com site if you need it.
- Tuesday evening is Parent ELA Night, when all the secrets of the English Language Assessment will be revealed. The session is from 6:30 to 8pm. Details are on the flyer (2014 ELA night).
- Thursday evening is Ms. Cilla’s Valentine Craft Workshop from 7-9 pm. You and your child can create a LOVE BUG craft together! Registration form is here:  2014 Valentine Workshop.
- Also Thursday evening, there is a special meeting for parents who have questions or concerns about changes to the gifted and talented program, and the admissions process. See the  handout with information about the meeting: 2014 GT Meeting Feb13

- Friday is a big day – not only is it the last day before the break, it’s also:
Valentine’s Day
The 100th Day of School
RED Day (wear red!)
The Valentine’s Day Bake Sale
Please bring in your donated baked goods in the morning, and remember to give your child a few dollars to spend on treats. As usual, there will be alternatives to the sweet treats (new Smencils in new scents, like cotton candy and bubble gum!) – it wouldn’t be a bake sale without them.

CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL NIGHT VOLUNTEERS!
Please don’t forget to fill out your Volunteer Form for this year’s International Night. This is perhaps our school’s best night, and it takes an army of volunteers to make it work. Remember, due to overcrowding ticket sales will be limited. Volunteers will be able to purchase tickets directly. If there are any tickets remaining after the volunteers have claimed theirs, they will be made available via lottery. Don’t get locked out! The sign-up form is available on the pta41.com web site.2014 INTERNATIONAL NIGHT Volunteer

Finally, please do join your fellow parents for this year’s special PTA Dinner Dance – send in your reservation form if you haven’t yet done so. This is a terrific evening each year, where parents and teachers get to mingle, dine, and dance like adults – no kids! If you haven’t attended in the past, please consider it this year (singles and couples welcome).

See you at school!
Your PTA Executive Board
