STOWE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

Halloween 2019

Community Meeting

The next Community Meeting will be on Friday, November 8, 8:20 AM.  Our Main Presenters will be Mrs. Ashley Perkins' 5th grade class (who missed presenting on November 1 as a result of the storm) while Mr. Sean Semler's 4th Graders will be hosting the Parent Pop Quiz. Please join us!

A very special assembly will be held on Wednesday, November 13, World Kindness Day.  Recognizing and practicing kindness every day is a driving force at SES... and we have some unique and engaging examples of kindness in action we would like to share with you!   Spend your day in a positive way on the 13th!  Timing TBD (check next week's Greenletter)!

 

Friday Program

It’s Friday Activity Program time and we are excited that we can again provide this opportunity to our students. Program details and registration forms here: Friday Program Registration.  Please get your registration in as soon as possible!

Please update the dismissal plans for your child/ren in PickUp Patrol.  In too many cases, default plans reflect old activity schedules and now that we’re transitioning from one season to another, they’re often outdated.  Plan changes need to be input, also, as that's how we determine what children should be doing after school.  Thank you for your assistance!

6th Annual Free Community Pancake Breakfast

Mark your calendars for the 6th Annual Free Community Breakfast to honor our Veterans on Monday, November 11th, at the Stowe Community Church.

This delicious pancake breakfast is free to the entire community!

Please join us  as we show gratitude to our local Veterans from 8:00 - 10:30 AM on 11/11 at the Stowe Community Church!

The PTO would like to thank everyone who participated in the Wreath and Citrus Fundraiser. It was a huge success and we are still counting orders! We will have an update on final numbers Friday at community meeting! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!  Details around pick-up and delivery will be coming out in the next couple of weeks! However, mark your calendars for November 23, as that will be our big delivery day! 

Upcoming:

We have heard from some families that they are missing our past fall fundraiser of wrapping paper and gifts.  If you are interested in purchasing wrapping paper or gifts, or have family members who wish to support SES in this way - we have an option! It is all direct order online (no paper order forms) and direct ship to home (no shipping to school for distribution).  To order or share with family and friends, you need to register your student at www.charlestonwrapstore.com; our school code is 17299.  From there you can send links to family and friends.  As with any fundraiser, a portion of profits go directly to SES PTO and support our students.  Orders must be complete by November 21. This fundraiser is completely optional.

Coming soon will be Art Card order forms!!  Again this year our wonderful art teacher, Ms. Hoffman, has taken it upon herself to help your children create a special piece of art which can then be turned into special keepsakes.  Customized order forms will be going home with your students in the coming weeks. There will be a quick turn-around on ordering to ensure that those who wish to receive their keepsakes before the winter break can do so. 

Thanks again for all the wonderful SES support!  As always if you have questions for the PTO please reach out to us at [email protected].

There is a Box Tops for Education collection bin near the Main Office.  If you've been clipping Box Tops, please bring them in and help generate funds to support our PTO's many projects and activities.
