Turkey Tally = Need 9
Only 2 Weeks left! We need your help!
Purchased, Thank you very much! = 7
The Harvest Moon Supper is November 8th and we need TURKEYS! 16, to be exact. So we’re starting a TURKEY TALLY to count down the number of turkeys we need for the delicious feast and the PTO’s best fundraiser of the year. For every turkey donated, we’ll give 10 FREE Raffle Tickets towards beautiful themed baskets that each class contributes to and the PTO puts together. We’ve had craft baskets, sundae baskets, divine chocolate baskets, baskets filled with reading books, Italian night baskets, and just to name a few!
There are two ways you can donate turkey and get 10 FREE Raffle Tickets:
(1) Donate money towards a turkey via our webstore, or
(2) Pick up the real deal (14-15 lbs.) and contact the PTO via email to make drop-off arrangements.
Thank you for your support!! Gobble, gobble!

The Eagle’s Nest will be open every Friday during the student’s snack time. The PTO runs this little shop as a way to teach the children about the denominations of currency and basic math skills, as well as the value of shopping wisely. We tell them that there is no “shopping on credit” but they are allowed to put an item on “layaway” for one week. Nothing we sell is edible, and the items run from 5¢ to $2. The PTO doesn’t make any profit from the store but we all agree that it is an invaluable tool for helping kids learn about everything from the difference between a nickel and a quarter to how to save for something you really want.
If your child (or you) would like to donate any home-crafted items to the store, we will gladly take them. And if you are interested in volunteering an occasional morning to help sell, email email@example.com. The hours are 9:00 until 10:15-ish.
