PTO News for the website August 2014

It’s wonderful to see all the happy faces back in the halls of Walker Gamble. Everyone seems to be prepared to learn and ready to make this 2014-2015 school year the best one yet!

The PTO is gearing up for our annual Fall Fundraiser. Final preparations are being made now and we anticipate a September kick off date. As always, our Fall Fundraiser is a great source of gifts for the upcoming Christmas season, not to mention a great time to stock up on the rolls of gift wrap that you will need. Plan to purchase some of the great cookie dough to set aside for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It can make things so much easier to simply take the prepared dough from the freezer and pop it in the oven. It’s not the Holidays without freshly baked cookies! We are excited about everything that will be offered this year – keep an eye open for your child’s fundraiser packet towards the end of September!

As always, we are more than happy to accept your General Mills Boxtops, Campbell Soup labels, and Tyson Chicken labels. This is free money for our school! Don’t forget the winning monthly class receives a cupcake party and a trophy. Help your child’s class collect the most and win !

We were pleased to be able to hand out allowance checks to our teachers prior to this new school year. This money goes towards much needed supplies and materials that the teachers need for their classrooms. Our teachers deserve every resource that we can provide. These funds are always greatly appreciated by the teachers and always put to good use. By participating in our past label drives and fundraisers, your child, as well as your family, helped make this happen. So thank you very much, and we look forward to, and appreciate, your continued support.

Volunteers are always welcome and appreciated! Participating in the WGE PTO is a rewarding way to take part in your child’s education here at Walker Gamble. There is always something to do! And we offer the PAW Program – because Parent Assistance Works! If you choose to be a member of this program, you basically set your own schedule to volunteer on days that suits you best. It’s easier than committing to a full time volunteer schedule while still helping out at your own pace. It’s a great way to give back to the school and be a part of the WGE family. You are welcome to talk to me if interested – just call the office and they will be happy to put us in touch.

Again, the Walker Gamble PTO looks forward to another amazing year! Let’s make it a wonderful experience!
