Parent Teacher League Updates & Meeting Schedule

PTL Fundraiser Updates
Thank you to everyone who participated in our recent fundraiser! 
With your involvement, we were able to raise over $750!  
Our school sold over 130 items, with 30 online orders and 17 participants total. Thank you for making this sale a success.

Santa's Workshop
In lieu of Christmas Cupboard this year, PTL will be hosting our first-ever Santa's Workshop. Students will have an opportunity to make Christmas crafts and enjoy some festive treats! 
To help make this event a success, we need your help. 
PTL will need volunteers to make decorations in advance, help set up on December 15th, and help on the day of the 16th. 
Watch your students' backpack for a flyer regarding the event and follow the below link to sign up to help with this event! 

Dine-In Events
We're starting up our dine-in events again very soon, with our kick-off event being at Angelo's Pizza in Lakewood. Ditch the dishes and help support our school by eating pizza -  it's a win-win for everyone! Look for flyers coming soon for further details. 

We would love to see you and hear your thoughts at our next meeting on January 5th @ 6:30 pm - all of our meetings this year will take place on the first Wednesday of every month unless otherwise advertised. 

We're looking forward to a great rest of the school year!
