Gifts & Goods Fundraiser – Thanks to all who have participated in our Gifts and Goods fundraiser (packets went home last week)! If you have not yet participated, keep in mind 50% of all wrapping paper sales and 40% of all kitchen and home items will go directly to Pierce Downer PTA! You can order online or, with an order form, additional packets are available in the school office!
Stop by the display cabinet (outside of the office) before tonight’s PTA meeting or at curriculum night to see a sample of the items being sold. Please contact Nicki Blattner with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Panther Pacers – Panther Pacers volunteers needed. Tuesdays and Fridays during the fall and spring, students can run/walk/skip around a “track” to earn tokens during lunch recess. Eight laps is equivalent to a mile! Parent volunteers are needed to run the biweekly program. Please follow this link to sign up for individual day spots. Any specific questions can be referred to Lisa Henrickson at email@example.com.
